Going to Ghana!

Greetings! Welcome to the course blog for Paideia 450: Christianity, Slavery, and Their Representations in Ghanaian Literature. It won’t be long until we are on our way to begin our studies in Ghana, and we’d like to take some time to introduce ourselves as your course bloggers!

Robert Marston

Robert here! I’m a senior business management major and music minor. After graduation, I aim to build a career in advertising with a creative focus on native digital content. In my years at Luther I have participated in a variety of musical ensembles, and I now work as program director at Luther’s KWLC radio (tune in at 1240am & stream online at KWLC.luther.edu!). Words can hardly express how excited I am for the learning and growing that this course and its travel have in store, and I can’t wait to share the adventure with you all!

Megan Geyer

Hi there! My name is Megan and I'm a senior English major, studying literature with a women & gender studies minor. I also sing in the Cantorei choir on campus and I'm an active member of the sorority Chi Theta Rho. After graduating from Luther, I hope to get my masters in education so I can go on and teach literature at the high school level. Traveling abroad has been one of my dreams since I was little and I can't wait to arrive in Ghana and begin this unique learning experience. I'm glad I get to share this adventure with you as I write this blog!

It’s our goal to keep you updated with important events and experiences that take place while we’re abroad. As we can’t predict the availability or reliability of network connections during our trip, our updates to the blog may be spotty, but we will do our very best to share as much of the experience as possible.
