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.

A Texas Topic!

Dr. Randall Williams, Professor at TAMU-K’s College of Agriculture and his wife, Dr. Karen Blaesing (Our Lady of the Lake University, San Antonio) joined us in Dunedin. Dr. Williams made a presentation about how agricultural education can contribute to the academic successes of college students. He cited data from his research work in Texas.  Dr. Williams’ presentation was at the University of Otago’s Centre for Sustainability. His presentation was well attended and led to a vigorous Q&A session with Otago’s doctoral students. We were happy to see the interest shown by Kiwi students about a topic that had a Texas focus!
