WILKES-BARRE: Three King's College students recently completed a study-abroad experience to India. The three-week program included learning components in Agartala, Bangalore and Delhi, with excursions to Mysore and Agra.

Jennie Hampton, Wilkes-Barre; Jennifer Momenzadeh, Nuangola; and Linda Rowe, Wilkes-Barre, earned a Congregation of Holy Cross Scholarship to participate in the program, titled "Globalization and Its Discontents." They were among a group of four King's students who toured the telecommunications help-line in Delhi; visited cultural sites and the religious space, Fatepur Sikri; and explored Lutyens' New Delhi as an example of Western imaginings of the "Orient."

Participants met with students and faculty from Holy Cross College in Agartala to discuss globalization, border relationships and national identity, religion and the historical perspective of national landmarks. This program was designed to broaden students' cultural perspectives, discuss controversial elements of national identities and compare cultures of the United States and India.

King's professors Noreen O'Connor, assistant professor of English, and Cristofer Scarboro, history, were program directors. Kim Fabbri, coordinator of short-term faculty led programs abroad, and Mollie Farmer, director of study abroad, assisted in developing the program.
