Rebecca in France Spain

Rebecca is a President’s Scholar and a triple major in art history in Meadows School of the Arts and Spanish and French in Dedman College. In Summer 2009, she will begin her travels in the sunny South of France on the Cote d’Azur before continuing to Barcelona. There, she will pursue a Richter research project, studying the relationship between nationalized Catholicism, the Franco regime and parish church architecture in the Catalunya region of northeastern Spain. After Barcelona, Rebecca will continue to the Burgundy region of France, where she will volunteer as a guest worker on an organic vegetable farm before settling down for Fall 2009 in Madrid.

Leaving on a jet plane

An excerpt from Rebecca’s blog:

This afternoon I will embark on the longest journey I have ever taken. Born and raised a Dallas girl who can count on two hands the number of places she’s been in her life, I have chosen a rather unusual path to explore over the next seven months. I will be studying, traveling, observing, and living in Spain and France from May until December of 2009, an amount of time that now seems unfathomable but that will surely be all too short after my time in Europe begins to unravel.

While my plans range from glamorous (strolling the beaches of Cannes) to grungy (getting my hands dirty on a vegetable farm in Burgundy), I plan to savor and value every moment and experience I come across on my unusual adventure.
