[b]Dr. Lee Torda[/b], assistant professor of English, and four students are spending nearly three weeks in Israel this month. The young writers are working on creative nonfiction pieces focusing on different aspects of life in Israel.
The students are [b]Margie Howe[/b], [b]Bligh MacDonald[/b], [b]Caragh Poh[/b], and [b]Kirsten Ridlen[/b]. They will use Haifa University as their home base, but will get to tour much of the country.
Dr. Torda and the students are blogging about their experiences during the trip. You can follow their exploits [link]here|http://bsuinisrael.tumblr.com/[/link].
The trip is sponsored jointly by the Offices of International Engagement and Undergraduate Research.
