The program will be complemented with training on intercultural teamwork and social activities to get a real local immersive experience, whilst learning about the local innovation and entrepreneurship environment.

Did you know that Chile has one of the best and clearest skies on earth to observe the universe? In this course, fully taught in English, you will understand the power of the light during day and night and also you will explore how the daylight and solar energy is used in Chile to power it´s transition towards sustainable energy. Besides, this course includes a field trip to the Northern part of Chile (Antofagasta) to visit and observe the sky in different ways, to live the on-site experience of observing the stars and the sun after studying the theory behind all these phenomenon for three weeks. We will be happy to accept students from all study areas, it will be a multidisciplinary course.

In this course there will be a combination of Spanish classes with readings and discussions of works of fiction and poetry that inform the reader of the place of the human being in relation to nature, community and history with emphasis on idealized societies in Latin America. The course will focus on those subjects from a Chilean perspective. As a country which has been a distant isolated “frontier” since pre-hispanic times to present days. The perception of time and space, and the relationship of Chilean culture with the rest of the South America and Europe, has been marked by the condition of being a sort of cast out country, mainly due to its geography. So, we will move from the mythological, to the archeological, the historic and the political. From mythical cities such as El Dorado or the City of the Caesars, to actual archeological artifacts, contemporary narrative and poetry that deal with current tensions while at the same time constructing imagined communities that either amplify, solve or transcend those tensions. We will read texts by Gabriela Mistral, Pablo de Rokha, Pablo Neruda, Vicente Huidobro, Violeta Parra, Raúl Zurita, among others. A field trip to the Chilan coastal area is included as well as many interesting sight visits in Santiago.
