S104 25373 Global Perspectives on the U.S. Election (Terry) (TEL) (S & H)(3 cr.)

A PORTION OF THIS CLASS RESERVED FOR FRESHMEN IN THE GLOBAL VILLAGE

The Fall 2004 U.S. Presidential election matters to us, but given our superpower status, it also matters throughout the world. Relying on international media and on international IU students, faculty staff and visitors, we'll study how other nations and cultures understand and interpret our upcoming Presidential election. Through this, you'll learn more about how others view us, how and why they form these opinions, and why the international image of the United States maters to us and to foreigners. Although this course is designed for students in international studies, political science and communications (and especially for residents of the Global Village Living-Learning Center), it's open to all undergraduates seeking better knowledge of how this country fits in with other countries and cultures. Skill in a language other than English is desirable but not essential.
