St. Claire Participates in Semester At Sea

Sybil St. Claire, a lecturer in the Department of Theatre, was one of 35 faculty members from universities across the nation selected to sail as an Instructor aboard the MV Explorer as part of Semester at Sea’s Summer 2009 voyage.

The leader in global comparative education, Semester at Sea (SAS) is a floating university that offers the highest quality international education. The Summer voyage, with a theme of Human Rights and Social Justice in the Mediterranean World, had ports of call in Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Bulgaria, Egypt, and Morocco.

While at sea classes were held daily, and when in port students participated in field excursions designed to experientially extend the classroom experience. Field excursions Sybil was able to create for her classes included performances at the State Puppet Theatre of Varna in Bulgaria and day-long workshops at Painted Bird Theatre, a feminist theatre of the oppressed in Istanbul, Turkey.
