Bantam

Christoph Geiss, professor of physics and environmental science, happened upon this rooster — perhaps a Bantam? — at an old fort in Nuwakot, Nepal, during the 2017 January Term course “Peoples and Cultures of Nepal,” which focused on the Tamang and Tibetan people who live near the Chinese border. Twelve students and five Trinity College professors, including instructor Michael Lestz, associate professor of history, made the trip. Lestz notes, “Visiting the highest mountain range in the world to appreciate the unique cultures that characterize this part of the world takes ‘experiential learning’ to a whole new level.” Trinity’s J-Term, which offers halfcredit courses between the fall and spring semesters, expanded this year to include four new study-away options, including the trip to Nepal.
