NC 0288 Aesthetic Experience and Global Competence

This course invites students to focus on the experiential dimensions of globalization, with special attention to how art can help us empathize and connect across differences, and entice us to imagine a better world. Examples with literature, visual art, socially conscious art, performance, video, and web-based works will help bring to life relevant issues and the subjectivities that surround them. Participants will explore their own responses to issues related to globalization, through digital art, creative writing, and socially conscious art projects. Integral to this course is consideration of how aesthetic lenses and processes might enrich global competence.

NC 0292 Discussion Leadership for Global Competence

Classrooms dedicated to global insights and connections focus on multiple perspectives — including different voices in the classroom. Well-led classroom discussions train students to become better at making sense of complex issues, asking questions, and working together. Facilitating discussion can be challenging, so together we will map when discussions can be a "go-to" tool, how to best structure discussions depending on our goals, and how to use two increasingly well-known techniques — the Socratic seminar and the Structured Academic Controversy.

NC 0298 Poverty

Mitigating poverty is an important factor in world economics. Identifying a nation or person as impoverished is a discursive and political act, and shapes how we respond to it. Growing and pervasive economic inequality in the world is at the root of many of our most pressing global issues. Morality, pragmatism, and enlightened self-interest motivate a variety of players — economists, bilateral donors, international institutions, non-governmental organizations, philanthropists, and social entrepreneurs — to address this inequality in a variety of ways. Students will explore the causes and experience of global poverty, analyze successes and failures in mitigating it, and review sources and modalities for teaching about it.

OF 0003.65 Foreign Film Femme Series: 3-Week Bundle Deal

Ever wonder what percentage of film directors are female in the United States? How about in other countries? See how female access to the director's chair has changed over the decades as we explore the works of female directors from nearly every continent — from the well-established such as Agnès Varda and Mira Nair, to relative newcomers like Cherien Dabis and Niki Caro. You’ll be exposed to films you may have never seen because of limited play of most foreign films in the U.S. We’ll discuss how cultures are portrayed, how co-production might shape the story, and learn about country-specific reactions to the films we watch. Note: You may purchase each course separately or the entire series under the Foreign Film Femme Series Bundle Deal for a discounted price.

Format: 25% Lecture, 25% Interactive discussion, 50% Film screenings
