Cameroon, Culture/Literature

There are two opportunities to learn on this trip:

  • This is a two-week trip to Cameroon during the month of May, shortly after graduation. Students will visit a country and its people generally, and also participate with University of Bues students in discussions of literature, film, art, culture, and faith.  AU students will also take a tour of Yaounda with noted Cameroonian author and scholar Dr. John Nkengason.
  • In addition, students will explore sites where ships departed for the middle passage, a nature preserve, a rainforest, a village (and meet a chieftain), a village that is home to "pygmies," as well as the Women's Empowerment Center, and places of worship.

Students will go to Cameroon to learn and to be humbled by what they learn;students will go as guests and as servants.
