Dutch Mosaic: Managing Death and Dying in Comparative Perspective
This upcoming Spring 2022 one-course mosaic will examine the philosophical, ethical, cultural, policy, organizational, and economic aspects of palliative and hospice care in both the U.S. and the Netherlands. The course will engage students in conducting interviews and participant observation both in the Carlisle region and an 11-day research trip to the Netherlands that will take place over spring break. To apply please visit the Center for Global Studies and Engagement. For further information, please contact Professor Susan Rose.

Carlisle Indian School Digitization Project Highlighted on the Front Page of the Navajo Times
The Archives and Special Collections department of Dickinson College partnered with the Community Studies and Mosaics to create a website that brings together and makes available the various photographs, letters, and administrative files pertaining to the more than 10,000 students who attended the Carlisle Indian Industrial School (CIIS) between 1879 and 1918. There is now a searchable database for those individuals who wish to search for more information on the CIIS and/or the students who attended the school.
