Acclaimed humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine specializes in images of remote indigenous cultures in more than 100 countries on six continents. Lisa spent a year traveling the world to document modern-day slavery – into the heart of broiling brick kilns, down rickety mine shafts, and into the hidden lairs of sex slavery. Her recent book, Slavery, has received global attention.
January Term, or Jan Term for short, is an intensive four-week academic experience at Saint Mary’s College where students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones, explore new intellectual territory and take classes that embody the Lasallian tradition of social action. A hallmark of the session is the Speaker Series, which brings provocative speakers from the worlds of art, politics, science and technology to the campus. During the day visiting speakers meet with several classes, engage in lively roundtable discussions with students and present their ideas to the entire community at a free public lecture in the evening.
