  • Virginia Military Institute - 'In Real Time' - Hong Kong Virtual Exchange Erases the Miles
    get cadets thinking about another culture said Sanborn associate professor of international studies He went on to say that while he wishes that each cadet at VMI could study abroad he s well aware that financial limitations make that impossible for many The virtual exchange is a cost effective means of giving students at least the flavor of another culture noted Sanborn who is planning to lead cadets on a trip to Taiwan and Hong Kong next summer Sanborn had long been interested in using technology to create cultural exchange opportunities with students in other countries but he hadn t made a formal plan for such an exchange until he attended an Asian studies development conference in Houston in March There he met Amy Wu a former journalist now teaching at the University of Maryland Wu had contacts at Shue Yan University a private school in Hong Kong and it was she who suggested that Sanborn make inquiries there Over the summer Sanborn traveled to both Hong Kong and Taiwan and while in Hong Kong he was able to visit Shue Yan and meet professors there Because Sanborn s own research focuses on the development of democracy he chose to make that form of government front and center to the cultural exchange Working in small groups cadets took the viewpoint of one of four nations Japan China Taiwan and the United States and produced videos about how the nation they re representing views recent student protests in Hong Kong a city that has been a part of mainland China since 1997 For the past two months students in Hong Kong have been conducting public demonstrations in favor of electoral reform and thus greater autonomy from Beijing An election to select a new chief executive for Hong Kong is currently set for 2017 but with a pool of candidates to be pre selected by the central Chinese government It is that aspect of the system that has fueled the student protests The goal of the video assignment explained Sanborn was for the cadets to understand and be able to explain to others why different governments in Asia would have differing views of the youthful protesters The Hong Kong students meanwhile produced similar videos from the viewpoint of their city s residents presenting views both in favor of and against the protests In addition Sanborn required each cadet to write a brief reflective essay on what democracy means to him or her When I teach about democracy part of my goal is to help my students better appreciate their own democracy noted Sanborn who won the 2014 Jackson Hope Prize for Excellence in Published Scholarly Work In the future Sanborn would like to teach a class on democracy in East Asia Said Sanborn There s no better way to understand your own democracy which is old than from studying democracy in a place where it s all new Two cadets participating in the virtual exchange said they d both learned quite a

  • Virginia Military Institute - International Studies 'Riding a Wave'
    the country That trend is reflected at VMI where about 18 percent of the Corps of Cadets an average of 270 300 cadets is part of the now very large international studies department We re riding a wave said Col James Hentz the head of the department but we re doing a really good job riding it Nationwide we re the 16th best place to study international politics and national security Hentz added citing rankings published by U S News and World Report We re doing something right When Hentz arrived on post 18 years ago international studies fell under the auspices of the history department He was one of only three full time faculty members who along with one adjunct taught an offering of courses that was minimal at best International studies went independent in 1997 and since then the number of faculty has tripled and the department houses an Institute Chair The department now offers 54 different classes and has become the largest on post The popularity of the major is a given particularly at a military school where about half of the students will accept a military commission that number is about 65 70 percent for international studies majors and Hentz said want to learn about the parts of the world where they are going to put boots on the ground someday What this department does really well what makes us a little different from other programs is we do focus on international politics said Hentz In addition to traditional political science courses the department offers classes dealing with the politics of individual countries around the world and has added courses dealing with what Hentz called subsequent issue areas that aren t confined to geographic areas classes like IS 329 Counterinsurgency and IS 344 Multinational Peacekeeping Most

  • Virginia Military Institute - Being 'the Guy Who Went to Africa'
    and now edits Over time Hentz has accumulated so many name tags and credentials from conferences that they spill over a hook on his office wall In recognition of his achievements as a scholar Hentz has been named as the recipient of the 2014 Scholar Award for Scholarship in International Studies and Political Science by the Virginia Social Science Association He will receive the award at that organization s annual meeting April 19 in Richmond Nominating Hentz was Lt Col Keith Kline associate professor of psychology who is a member of the VSSA s board I nominated Hentz because he is an extremely accomplished and internationally renowned scholar and an expert in his field said Kline In my view what makes his level of scholarly productivity particularly remarkable is that he has achieved this at a small military college with its own set of unique demands His scholarship is also especially impressive in light of the fact that he is a department head who has played a primary role in the development of what has become a truly exemplary department that offers the most popular academic major at VMI Displaying an energy level that many would envy Hentz recently took on a new commitment as a consultant for Wikistrat a privately owned online consulting firm In the fall of 2013 Hentz participated in a simulation for the U S Army Africa Command or AFRICOM which addressed illicit trafficking in the Trans Sahel region of Africa a transition zone between the Sahara Desert to the north and the grasslands to the south At the end of the simulation Hentz won one of four awards for best analyst In addition Hentz has recently completed work on his next book The Nature of War in Africa which is now under contract to be published I have some responsibility to educate people about what s going on in Africa he commented That s part of my job As an example Hentz noted that very few people are aware that by the start of the 21st century more people were being killed in wars in Africa than in the rest of the world combined With a lifelong ambition to do research and teach Hentz has found academia to be an easy fit Likewise he s found international studies to be an ideal discipline I want to talk and think about things that have a real world impact he said For Hentz that emphasis on the real world has been a constant theme Immediately after graduating from St Joseph s College in Philadelphia now St Joseph s University Hentz traveled to American Samoa where he taught for two years He then came back to the United States to work as a legislative aide on Capitol Hill and earn a master s degree from Georgetown University Before going on for a doctorate Hentz packed his bags for another teaching stint in Zambia a landlocked African country that was once a British colony He later returned to Africa
