Brandon Alston '14, Mariah Braxton '14 and Simone Partridge '14 participating in MMUF 2014 Cape Town: A City of Contrasts
This fall, Haverford MMUF Fellows, Brandon Alston ('14), Mariah Braxton ('14) and Simone Partridge ('14) were selected to participate in a ten-day, on-site, experiential learning program at the University of Cape Town, South Africa in January 2014. Cape Town: A City of Contrasts has been chosen as the central and overarching theme for 2014. The program seeks to broaden:
-MMUF fellows' understanding of the South African socio-eco, racial, cultural, historical and environmental landscape;
-through critical enquiry and debate, both the US and SA perspectives of the social dynamics operating within these respective contexts;
-the aim of the MMUF program in developing young academics;
- and provide an opportunity for individuals to reflect critically on their experiences.
