The following set of materials include a course syllabus, recorded small talks on key concepts in global politics, as well as the course schedule. Course description:
This course takes a thematic approach to highlight major global issues and how various regions of the world have experienced and responded to common trends in culture, politics, and science including the stress and storm that often characterize these life challenges with a focus on the past two decades. Students will critically analyze how cultural, social, economic, and/or environmental exchanges between people from different regions interact in our globalized world today. The recent innovations in technology, transportation and communication have helped in forging a more closely interconnected world. Events taking place in seeming isolated regions of the world often reverberate across the more cosmopolitan regions with significant cultural implications. By studying selected themes related to politics, economics, health, religion, gender, race etc. we will assess the ways in which common issues affect our lives and how we will continue to share these experiences in the coming decades.
