SOSC1240 - World Cultures
Fall 2014

This course focuses on international issues in the contemporary world. Students are asked to apply, in a modern context, their basic conceptual tools from literature, philosophy, history, cultural anthropology, and other humanities and social science disciplines. This interdisciplinary approach is designed to promote critical thinking and discussion leading to enhanced understanding of the ethnic, regional, national, and global tensions that share the contemporary world. Topics include the legacy and aftermath of colonialism, the legacy of the two World Wars, the rise and fall of twentieth century political systems, the place of religion in the modern context, and the movement toward a global economy. This course will prepare international honors students for the experience of living and studying abroad and will lay the foundation for the required senior thesis.
