Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program on International Women's Studies Seminar on Changing Status Roles in India.
In July 1988, 14 Florida scholars traveled to India on a 6-week followup of a 1976 project on the status of women in India. Headquartered in Madras (India), the group also studied in 12 other locations. A pre-departure orientation program included lectures on health and related issues, a discussion of life in an Indian village, films, and slides of the 1976 seminar. Activities in India included meetings with educators and researchers on women's roles, education, work, social life and cultural practices, political history, and topics of special interest to group members; and visits to related organizations and locations. Program results include enhanced teaching and scholarship, participation in a variety of conferences, development of an anthology of essays based on the experiences in India, a bibliography, a slide show for use by academic institutions, increased library holdings at Florida International University, and collegial and scholarly exchanges.
