About

I’m Liz Lawley, a professor of Interactive Games & Media at Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. (You can find out more about me on my RIT website.)

During the spring of 2013 (late February through the end of May) I lived in Dubrovnik, Croatia, and taught two courses at RIT’s American College of Management and Technology. My younger son Alex lived with me there, and my older son Lane was also be in Dubrovnik as part of RIT’s Computer Science study abroad program. I used this blog to chronicle our trip planning process, as well as our adventures in Dubrovnik. I hope to share not just the touristy highlights, but also the flavor of day-to-day life in Dubrovnik from the POV of an American ex-pat.

During the spring of 2015 I will be back in Dubrovnik as a United States Fulbright Scholar, developing a new minor in games and tourism for both Croatian and study abroad students. I’ll be using this blog to chronicle that process, as well.
