Rough Seas: Ethnography and Academic Freedom on The Scholar Ship
By Timothy McGettigan and Carlos A. Cuevas
Rough Seas offers an ethnographic account of a fascinating international education adventure on the high seas. The authors, one a professor and the other a student, describe their experiences on The Scholar Ship-the academic equivalent of the United Nations at sea. The authors argue that international educational ventures such as The Scholar Ship will help cultivate a new generation of highly-educated leaders with the necessary skills to tackle the complex intercultural challenges that face the global village in the twenty-first century.
Timothy McGettigan is a professor of sociology at Colorado State University-Pueblo. His interests include international education, science, technology, and the future. His next book will examine the goals and existing limitations of scientific cosmology.
Carlos A. Cuevas is currently attending graduate school at the University of Nottingham, School of Sociology and Social Policy. His graduate studies are sponsored by the Mexican National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT).
