Greetings from Guatemala!
My name is Michael Harvey and I’m writing from the Hospitalito Atitlan – http://www.hospitalitoatitlan.org/ – in Guatemala. We are located in the Tz’utujil Maya town of Santiago Atitlan on the shores of Lake Atitlan, and we serve this community by offering high-quality health services to its population.
We are currently writing to select US Anthropology departments regarding a new 6-week summer cultural and medical immersion program we are looking to pilot late this June. We are calling it the ‘Field School Fellows Program at the Hospitalito Atitlan’ and it will be taught largely by anthropologist Vincent Stanzione, author of Rituals of Sacrifice and frequent lecturer at top US universities. Hospital staff and community leaders will also lecture and lead discussions. Classroom time will be supplemented by field trips and optional volunteer projects.
We hope to fill between 5 and 10 seats for this summer.
Please see the FSF – Info , and please be in touch if you’d like more information.
