Topic: INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN AID. There are 65 million refugees and internally displaced people in the world today. The ongoing refugee crisis in Europe has brought the lives displaced people live to public attention. Many of them are stuck in camps, with little prospect of leaving them. Others are adrift in large urban areas, forced to live in derelict housing or to send their young children out to work. What should be done to help these people? What problems do nation-states, aid agencies, businesses and volunteers face when they try to address this crisis? Can displaced people themselves construct meaningful lives while they remain "permanently temporary"? We will address this issue on global, regional, national and personal levels, trying to discover how to provide help that really helps.

Topic: COMPUTERS, CULTURES, AND OUR GLOBALIZED FUTURE. Has computer technology made the world a better place -- more prosperous, more informed, more tolerant, and more peaceful? This is a question that is on many people's minds, but with no easy answer. Computing has transformed people's ways of life around the globe. Work, leisure, commerce, communication, politics, war, and education are now conducted very differently from a few of decades ago. While many of these changes seem to have a global character, they take specific forms in various cultures and societies. The way social media are used, for instance, is different in Brazil from how it is in Angola, and these are yet quite distinct from Russia, China, Sweden, Iran, or South Korea. This, however, is not unique to social media. All technologies are designed, developed, and used according to the demands of cultures and places; they are shaped by their contexts of use, and in turn shape those contexts. Like any other technology, and perhaps more strongly, computers are cultural and political artifacts. One of the best ways to understand them, therefore, is through a socio-economic, cultural, and political lens. This course explores computing from such a perspective, with a focus on the future of communities and societies across the globe.

INTL-I 502 SEM IN GLOBAL HLTH & ENVRNMT (13208)

Topic: NEGOTIATING CLIMATE: CULTURE, SCIENCE, AND POLITICS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TRANSFORMATION. How do people study, experience, interpret, and mitigate global climate change? We investigate climate science, politics, and economics, along with how climate change intersects with matters of justice, gender, globalization, media, development, and higher education. We'll conduct applied research on particular climate topics at local, state, national, and international scales to uncover solutions in a rapidly changing environment. We'll integrate are work into mock climate negotiations coupled with a climate model. Students will develop a topic of climate expertise related to their own topical or geographic interests to track throughout the semester, including through remote participation at the Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

INTL-I 506 SEMINAR IN IDENTITY & CONFLICT (36474)

Topic: WOMEN AND WAR. We will look critically at women's assigned roles and at gendered identities and experiences in peace and in wartime, from a historical and comparative perspective, considering such concepts as gender, motherhood, combat, and sexual violence. Further topics include women's place in the war economy and as victims (along with men) of sexual/gender-based violence war; women's agency and their multiple roles in armies and other armed groups; women as perpetrators of violence and extremism; and the making of gendered ethnic identities and of national history in the aftermath of war.

INTL-I 510 SEM DIPLOMACY SECURITY GOVERN (30248)

Why do armed groups engage in violence against civilians? What are the consequences for such conduct? Can such violence be limited in future conflicts? This course seeks to provide a framework for thinking about violence against civilians in war. We will approach these issues from theoretical, ethical, legal, empirical, and policy perspectives, examining the main moral and legal arguments prohibiting the targeting of civilians as well as theories used to understand variation in such armed group conduct. By the end of this course, students will be able to apply this knowledge in order to assess global policies to promote human security. Students pursuing careers in human rights, security, diplomacy, law, or international policy will find this course useful.

INTL-I 515 RESEARCH METHODS INTL STUDIES (13130)

This course introduces students to principles and techniques of research, from formulating a research question to collecting and analyzing data. The course begins with foundational concepts, such as ethics, drawing on literature, and sampling. With this grounding, the course then covers a variety of methods commonly used in international studies, including field experiments, surveys, in-depth interviews, ethnography, case studies, and textual analysis. By the end of the course, students should be able to plan and conduct their own research, including their international studies capstone project, and will be better able to understand and evaluate research undertaken by others.
