A&S 161 - INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE, THEN AND NOW


College of Arts & Sciences

Credit(s): 3

This course will explore the formation and transformation of the ‘international village,’ defined as a network of connections and communications, as well as tensions and conflicts, that has stretched across continents and countries over the past 100+ years. We will accomplish this task by examining a number of specific phenomena or events of global significance, such as war, new media, pandemics, Olympic games, popular culture, the United Nations, religion, political economy (with emphasis on environmental issues), and technology (with emphasis on issues concerning AI and biomedical engineering). In the process, we will also explore specific forms the international village has taken on the UK campus by conducting life history interviews among classmates.

Prereq: Enrollment in the International Village Living and Learning Program.
Meets UK Core: Global Dynamics.
