January 30, 2012
6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Location: Rafik B. Hariri Building Fisher Colloquium
The Berkley Center's Junior Year Abroad Network (JYAN) 2010-2011 members joined together at the annual JYAN dinner to present reflections on their time abroad. Fifty-seven Georgetown students studying on five different continents participated in the program this academic year. Participants wrote letters from abroad addressing questions of religion, culture, and politics throughout the world. The students shared these letters through the Berkley Center website and engaged in dialogue about their common experiences and perceptions of different cultures, particularly the many roles that religion plays in their host country. When the participants returned to Georgetown, they met several times to reflect on their experiences and develop and present a publication for the wider Georgetown community and beyond. The new JYAN report was presented to them during the dinner. Chester Gillis, dean of Georgetown College, provided the keynote address.
