We are told that as "outside people" or "gaijin," we will struggle to conform to the daily practices of the Japanese. As traveling students of anthropology, we have always attempted to see the similarities of human beings rather than the differences. After our first 48 hours in Japan, I think we can...

No matter where we turn in India, magnificent displays of color are always there to greet us. Women of all ages can be seen, adorning their frames with bright sarees; abundant, lush greenery can usually be found just a stone's throw away. To add a bit of dark contrast to this colorful world, the students of Breanna Reynold's 12th grade Language & Literature classes have been studying the macabre Shakespeare...

This past weekend, our students participated in a TGS first: choosing their own weXplore adventures across India.

It narrates a mother telling her daughter all she needs to know in order to be the best woman, wife and mother. Beyond simple rules, it reveals cultural, religious and geographical biases on social constructs of gender and identity. For my vignette, I wrote in the perspective of...

I know you might be asking why, out of all engineering, I chose mineral engineering? It's because I want to throw myself into the space mining industry. I figured it...

Greetings TGS, Long time reader, first time blogger here. Some of you may have noticed that I can be a little patriotic... My friends in Abu Dhabi used to joke that New Zealand has "small country" syndrome because it is always determined to be the best.
