Topic: NUMERIC LITERACY. In this course students will learn how to analyze data and interpret results. Commonly used descriptive and inferential statistics will be covered, including measures of centrality and variation, hypothesis testing, and ordinary least squares regression. In the lab, students will learn how to use Stata, a statistical software, to explore and analyze data.

Topic: AFTER ATROCITIES. This is a class about political violence of the worst sort: killing on a scale that "shocks the conscience of mankind," what happens in the aftermath of genocide and mass atrocities, and what can be done to prevent such scarring episodes. We will undertake a brief survey of atrocities from classical times to the arrival of European settlers in the ¿New World.¿ Our investigation will continue with examination in greater detail of the mass atrocities of the 20th Century, from the Armenian genocide through the Holocaust and Cambodia¿s "Killing Fields," to Rwanda, former Yugoslavia, and Darfur, on to today¿s headlines from Syria. We will examine efforts to hold perpetrators to account from Nuremberg to the Genocide Convention to the International Criminal Court, as well as other means of promoting healing and reconciliation, including truth commissions and consideration of reparations. Finally, we will assess the new 21st-Century effort to prevent atrocities internationally, from the development of the principle of the "responsibility to protect" to the tragic aftermath of intervention in Libya and the consequences of inaction in Syria. The course will be multidisciplinary in character, drawing on history, law, ethics and political theory and media including journalism, literature, and film.

Topic: INTRODUCTION TO LATIN AMERICAN AND CARIBBEAN GRADUATE STUDIES. This course is structured around three central questions. 1) What does it mean to think and work in interdisciplinary terms? 2) What is the history of area studies generally, and Latin America and the Caribbean Studies specifically, and what advantages can we gain by gaining a deep knowledge of Latin America and the Caribbean and their place in the world? 3) What sorts of practical skills do graduate students need to succeed as interdisciplinary scholars, activists, policymakers, aid workers, or businesspeople? While it is not feasible to cover an entire region or a vast array of disciplines in a semester-long course, this seminar provides an introduction to a history of area studies and Latin American and Caribbean Studies, an initial approach to the theoretical perspectives present across its breadth, and the analytical tools necessary to produce a grant proposal and conduct research.

Topic: DEMOCRACY IN A GLOBAL AGE. This course focuses on a series of fundamental political questions. What is democracy, and how should we make sense of its core elements? Since those core elements were typically intended to be realized within individual nation-states, does globalization perhaps require us to reevaluate them? Does democracy, in other words, have to be updated to suit our increasingly "global age," where globalization processes limit the state's ability, in far-reaching ways, to control its own affairs? With democracy facing a populist backlash against "global elites," such questions seem more urgent than ever before. The fate of democracy may hang on our ability to answer them effectively. The course starts with a systematic introduction to competing theoretical views of democracy, with special attention paid to the ways in which those views rest on some obsolescent political and social premises. After examining globalization's demands on democracy, we consider possibilities for updating and/or improving democracy. Finally, we consider the reemergence of authoritarian and populist movements as responses to globalization and its challenges to existing democracy. Primarily about democracy and its standard theoretical underpinnings, and how globalization threatens them, the course draws on readings and other materials from a variety of scholarly fields.

Topic: A GLOBAL HISTORY OF SUSTAINABILITY. Today, talk of "sustainability" is all the rage. Yet for most of human history, most practices were "un-sustainable." Why? What ideas and institutions gave rise to such destructive habits? How have those past experiences shaped the world of today? Why only in recent decades has talk of sustainability become so popular? In what ways has the concept of sustainability itself been challenged or reformed on ground of political, economic, and social justice? We'll explore these questions by investigating the history behind unsustainable and sustainable practices around the globe. We will examine long-term changes in both space and time to develop a keener understanding of how the human-nature relationship has evolved. We will pay particularly close attention to the relationship between "the West" and the rest of the globe, as well as the relationship between notions of "development" and "modernization" that led people to alter the natural world in many different ways.

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.
