The Alan Paton Centre and Struggle Archives (APC) welcomed 3 students from the Central Michigan University (CMU), United Sates of America on 29 May 2017. The students was accompanied by Prof. Maureen Eke from the English Department at CMU. The visit was an interdisciplinary study abroad course on South Africa through the lenses of literature, history and culture. According to Prof. Eke the student’s discussion began with Alan Paton’s novel Cry, the Beloved Country which provided the students an entry into the emerging landscape of African dispossession, especially as the National Party will define it later through grand apartheid. The three students who accompanied Prof. Eke are Adam Kinne who is studying Philosophy and History with his focus in classics, Rachel Sternik is studying English and History with her focus in law and Maria Orsick is studying Public Health.
