Hold Fast to What is Good is a history of Augsburg University told through objects—the material culture left behind by the “Auggies” themselves. This history includes tales of teachers and students, but also of whale bones and ceremonial pipes, of missionaries and prohibitionists, of sex scandals, racism, kidnapping, murder, and, of course, money. It is a story about ideas, and how those ideas evolved over time; a story of how one school both reasserted and reinvented its vocation.
Now in paper back for just $32.79. The book will also be available in the bookstore later this month.

Delegates have to understand the challenges of representing that country with its particular history, culture, and current foreign policy priorities and diplomatic objectives. At the same time, each delegate represents that country on a particular committee and will be researching issues such as climate change, human rights, trade, poverty, human trafficking, or arms control.

Palestinian Art of Resistance, 4-credits, fulfills Fine Arts requirement and Augsburg Experience
Course options: ART 211 or THR 295
Faculty Leader: Sarah Myers and Robert Tom
Travel Dates: March 13-23, 2020 (spring break)
Art of Resistance will immerse you in contemporary Palestinian culture and invite you to learn directly from a wide range of artists in the region. You will have the unique opportunity to experience art and performance first-hand in diverse Palestinian contexts, from a day-long excursion to cultural sites in Ramallah to a conference call with artists in Gaza. A major component of the course will be ongoing cultural exchange with students from Dar al-Kalima University in Bethlehem. Augsburg students will also learn about the complex political, historical, social, and religious context for Palestinian art and theater through guided tours, performances, gallery talks, museum visits, readings, and discussions. Throughout these experiences, students will interrogate what it means to create art under occupation, explore various definitions of the “art of resistance,” and learn tools to make creative work that defies and reimagines the status quo.
