FR 251 - Special Topics in Transnational Studies (2 or 4 Cr.)

This interdisciplinary course explores the economic, political, and cultural processes that transcend the boundaries of nation-states. By focusing on a special topic (e.g., global communications, immigration, visual and performing arts, multinational corporations, health and the environment), students will explore transnational connections between individuals, communities, and societies and how these influence the social, cultural, economic and political landscapes in their societies of origin and destination. To better understand the dynamic exchanges and conflicts across postcolonial and other borders, we will draw on concepts taken from the social sciences, the arts, and the humanities. No prerequisite. May be taken more than once if topic is different. In English (2 or 4 credits). Offered in fall 2019. Rauwerda, Ingram, Martin, St. Ours.
