Friday 9:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m
Please contact Hilary Kahn for more information. The Course # and Section # are changing due to the transition into the School of Global and International Studies.
The overall goal of this seminar is to help graduate students generate a global research framework that incorporates various disciplinary perspectives and complements and strengthens students' disciplinary and regionally specific academic interests. The seminar is designed to stimulate students to think critically about a broad range of theoretical and methodological issues involved in global research, including empirical methods, ethics, qualitative and quantitative approaches, tracking the intersection of the global and local, and global research designs from different disciplinary perspectives. In addition to providing an analytical framework for global scholarship, the seminar also creates an interdisciplinary community of scholars and as such places a strong emphasis on attendance and participation, peer review, and presenting critical analyses in a scholarly manner.
Graduate students from a wide range of disciplines and professional schools, including MA students and those who are working on preliminary dissertation research designs, will benefit from this interdisciplinary seminar. Students will be required to present a critical evaluation of a dissertation of their choice, compile an annotated bibliography, design a global framework for approaching their academic interests, and develop a preliminary research proposal to explore global phenomena.
*** Please note that this course fulfills the core course requirement for the Global Studies Graduate Minor
