Intro

The Political Science Program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMU-K), with the assistance of the University’s Division of International Studies & Programs, is pleased to introduce its Pacific Studies Program 2015 - a collaborative initiative between A&M-Kingsville and the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. The Pacific Studies Program (PSP) is being co-directed by Dr. Nirmal Goswami, Professor of Political Science, TAMU-K and Dr. Elaine Webster, Director, Summer School and Continuing Education, University of Otago. The PSP will include graduate and undergraduate students traveling to and staying in New Zealand in July of 2015, attending classes at the University of Otago, and visiting multiple sites through field trips in the greater Otago region. Areas of focus include history, politics, economics, culture, sustainability and environmental policies, etc., with reference to both the greater Pacific region and New Zealand. You are all invited to cyber travel with us as we learn about the uniqueness of New Zealand and the surrounding region. This blog will document our experience. You are welcome to post comments.

Uni Flats

We are staying in “Uni Flats.”  These are small houses owned by the U of Otago and used for student housing; they are located all around the campus. We have two of these flats. Each of us have our own room. The flats have kitchens, common areas, TVs, washers/dryers, and wifi. We are also within walking distances from clubs, cafes, shops, etc. Our “flat” housing arrangements are sweet! To make ourselves feel at home, we even hung a Javelina sign outside!
