Start Date: 2018-01-08 End Date: 2018-05-04

We explore human-environment interactions from international and interdisciplinary perspectives. We consider how and why humans shape the nature they inhabit in particular ways, and how in turn, nature shapes health and disease among humans. We will study how, as global change unfolds in particular cultures, ecologies and geographies, it alters human resistance and susceptibility to disease, and too, alters the access of individuals and communities to conditions of wellness. Drawing from the social and natural sciences and the humanities, the course will provide students with the concepts, theories and analytic tools useful for understanding and addressing the social, political and economic complexities of the fundamental global health and environment issues of our time. In this section, we focus on sociocultural and environmental transformations accompanying global management of two modern viral pandemics: HIV/AIDS and Dengue Fever.

Start Date: 2018-01-08 End Date: 2018-05-04

This course will investigate intersections between "identity" and "conflict." We will consider how different forms of identity--such as ethnic, religious, political, and gender--can become the basis for people to mobilize. We will analyze the processes through which certain identities are affirmed at the cost of alternative ones, paying careful attention to how and why people participate in acts of violence and discrimination against those whose identities are deemed undesirable. Rather than view conflicts as irreducibly based in identity, however, we will seek to understand how they emerge out of local conditions and historical legacies, and can be shaped by national, regional, and transnational contexts. Our approach will be interdisciplinary, drawing on readings from anthropology, cultural studies, and political theory. Students will acquire some familiarity with critical concepts such as colonialism and post-colonialism, the nation and the state, race and ethnicity, and globalization and neoliberalism.

This course will investigate intersections between "identity" and "conflict." We will consider how different forms of identity--ethnic, religious, linguistic, and political, to cite a few examples--can become the basis for people to mobilize. We will examine how collective forms of identity can be yoked to nationalism, resulting in an exclusionary view of the nation-state and violence against those whose identities are deemed undesirable. Rather than view conflicts as irreducibly based in identity, however, we will also seek to understand how they emerge out of local conditions and colonial legacies, and can be shaped by national, regional, and transnational contexts. Our approach will be interdisciplinary, drawing on readings from anthropology, political theory, and history. Students will acquire a familiarity with critical concepts such as nationalism, ethnicity, gender, political economy, and sectarianism.

Wars in the Middle East. Global financial panics. Nuclear confrontation between two adversaries. Global climate change and catastrophic environmental decline. People around the world struggle to manage these issues, yet they demand our attention. This course will helps you make sense of the conflicts and threats that pervade our world, whether you want to be a diplomat one day or whether you just want to learn more about major topics in the news. We¿ll explore several key questions. Why have conflicts emerged in international politics? Why, in other instances, has cooperation prevailed? How can theory and history help us understand diplomacy, security, and governance, and what are their limits? Through lectures, discussion activities, and policy workshops this course explores these questions by investigating the theoretical lenses needed to understand why and how policies are made; the history behind diplomacy, security, and governance since 1945; and how such knowledge can help us to grapple with the major diplomatic, security, and governance challenges of the present day.

Topic: CLIMATE DISASTERS AND RESILIENCE. Development, as a suite of projects, ideas, and attributes, can contribute to building communities resilient to climate change, among other concerns. We will learn to think through the complex sociocultural and natural impacts of climate change in the course, taking the concept and experience of "disaster" as our starting point. The first half of the course borrows from diverse traditions to explore ideas centered around climate development, such as risk, adaptation, resilience, vulnerability, and equity. The second half of the course examines climate-related disasters, broadly conceived--like urbanization, sea level rise, and food systems crises--to analyze techniques and concepts to improve human and environmental resilience.

Topic: HUMAN RIGHTS IN EVERYDAY LIFE: PASSAGEWAYS AND CHRONICLES. This course focuses on the movement of human rights into everyday practices and relationships, including how people perceive each other, construct aspirations, and develop ways of life. Through readings, assignments, and class discussions we will ask how the contexts in which people live shape the nature, roles, and power of human rights and will consider both positive and negative consequences of framing relationships and power in terms of human rights. Other questions that drive the course interrogate relationships between rights and practices. This course also critically examines the pursuit of human rights as a means of solving problems; in doing so, it considers alternatives to rights seeking in processes of survival and the realization of ideals. Some course interrogations and critiques of human rights derive from non-Western contexts or contexts of rights making and practice that complicate popular Western notions and assumption about rights seeking and ontologies.

Topic: GENDER AND INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS. International human rights laws and norms are intended to recognize and protect the rights of all people, but have frequently been criticized for failing to recognize or address gendered experiences, perspectives, needs and violations. This course explores the historical, political, and philosophical foundations of the modern international human rights legal system, and examines how and why the current system addresses (or fails to address) gendered problems and experiences. We will study the development, structure, and contemporary jurisprudence of the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Form of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), as well as how other international human rights laws and treaties intersect with gender-based claims. We will discuss evolving definitions and conceptions of gender-based rights and claims, and ways to improve their recognition and enforcement. We will analyze current cases brought under CEDAW, gender analyses and reports prepared pursuant to CEDAW, as well as campaigns to increase the implementation and reach of CEDAW.

Topic: THE RAINBOW SPECTRUM: GLOBAL GENDER DISPLAY, CULTURAL POLITICS AND RESISTANCE. Multiple factors influence embodied gender identity performance in today's global context. Explore gender performance in Zar cult rituals and spirit possession, Filipino transgender beauty pageants, the hyper-masculine hyper-reality of some video games, "Bishounen" character tropes in East Asia, the politicization of queer identities in Uganda, policing of LGBTQ identities in Russia through the use of violence, American gendered body modification through plastic surgery, and the YPJ--Kurdish women's army and its ideology of Jineology. What can be learned through critical study of gender performance in a post binary context? Where does performance mean resistance and where does the performance further encode hegemonic power dynamics? Which theoretical frameworks help us to best interpret global cultural politics and performance?

Topic: MUSEUMS: THE DISPLAY OF CULTURE. Display is never neutral. Museums and exhibitions are showcases in which nations and cultures model their own images and their relationships with the wider world. Nowhere is the culture of display more overtly politicized than in the museum presentation of so-called world cultures: the institutional display of ¿other¿ cultures can often tell us as much about the society that frames and consumes the display as it reveals about the culture on display. This course will investigate some of the most potent presentations of both "self" and "other" in the history of museums, and will engage with issues of colonialism and cultural capital, nation-building and self-identity.

Topic: The Politics of Protest. To protest means to express strong disapproval or objection to something. With regard to the politics of protest, individuals or groups express their dissent or disapproval to a particular audience¿usually local, national or even international governments, but also corporations, school administrations, etc. and the broader public¿with the objective to change the behavior or policies that provoked their protest. Protestors use myriad tactics to assert and publicize their dissent such as provocative art, cyber-attacks, street demonstrations and even violent rebellion, just to name a few examples. When protestors organize, we refer to the protesters as social movements, but other people also engage in less systematic protest. We will study who engages in protest and to whom they protest. We examine why various people or groups protest, and when and how they are likely to do so. We will compare various protest campaigns around the world¿most concerned with issues of human rights, equality and justice¿to learn what factors are more likely to produce successful outcomes and which protests fizzle out or fail. We will study social movements and the literature about them, but we also will examine less traditional forms of protest, focusing primarily on the period from 1960s to today.

This course seeks to provide a framework for thinking about the key issues of security and conflict in the modern era. In this course, we will examine issues such as civil war, counterinsurgency, terrorism, humanitarian intervention, peacekeeping, drones, and technology in warfare. We will approach these issues from empirical, theoretical, and policy perspectives to understand how such issues will influence international politics today and in the decades to come. By the end of this course, students will be able to apply this knowledge in order to assess global policies to promote international stability and human security. Students pursuing careers in human rights, security, diplomacy, intelligence, law, or international policy will find this course useful.

Topic: INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL THOUGHT. Since the dawn of the modern states system in the early seventeenth century, the 'international' has signified both an empirical reality and a political ideal. It has been an especially powerful organizing principle for thinking about how individuals and collectives pursue their interests, make demands of each other, and approach their common problems. This course offers a survey of key themes, concepts, and historical developments as they relate to the evolution of thought about the international. In particular, it surveys mainstream as well as critical approaches to the study of empire and post-imperialism, sovereignty and nationalism, diplomacy and security, commerce and globalization, and democracy and global governance. The chief aim of the course is to demonstrate how theory provides a road map, toolkit or lens by which to examine international events and processes. Although there is no mandatory prerequisite for this course, prior enrollment is INTL I-100 is recommended.

Topic: EMPIRE, WAR, AND DEVELOPMENT: THE HISTORY OF U.S. NATION-BUILDING IN GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE. President Donald Trump promised an end to U.S. nation-building projects overseas, yet in his first year he has deepened American involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere. Why? More broadly, why does the United States spend so much blood and treasure to remake other countries? We¿ll seek to answer those questions by analyzing the history of the United States¿ efforts at development and nation-building around the world. We¿ll do so by investigating a set of broader queries: Why has the United States dedicated so much time and effort to develop and build societies across the globe? Which ideas and experiences have U.S. policymakers drawn upon to construct other nations? To what extent have U.S. efforts been challenged and resisted, and to what effect? In our study, we will explore the geopolitical context in which nation-building projects took place - from the age of empire to the Cold War through recent globalization - to explain the relationship between ideology, environmental, and strategic factors that defined how and why U.S. officials attempted to reshape entire societies and the consequences of those actions for the entire world.

Topic: PUTIN'S RUSSIA. The Soviet empire held sway over half the world and collapsed a quarter of a century ago. Contemporary Russia is a different country; it is neither communist, nor an empire. Unlike its Soviet predecessor, which set out to build a new world, today's Russia does not reject its Soviet legacy; instead, it seeks to embrace it along with the earlier history of tzars and princes. In this course we will trace Russia's recent history in order to understand how today's Russia has come about. We will look into why the USSR stagnated in the 1970s; why Mikhail Gorbachev, the first and last president of the Soviet Union, launched Perestroika; why Gorbachev's reforms, instead of reinvigorating the Soviet Union, precipitated its death; and why so few people lamented its passing at the time, and so many miss it today. Today's Russia is habitually referred as Putin's Russia; it has come to be feared and resented the way the Soviet Union once was. But this course seeks to provoke curiosity, not resentment, and we will not focus too much on politics. Instead, we will explore Russian society and culture by reading texts by US scholars and journalists and watching contemporary Russian films.

Topic: AFTER ATROCITIES, RECONSTRUCTING THE PEACE. Despite a long-standing international legal norm against the targeting of civilians in armed conflict, experts estimate that no less than 100 million civilians were killed in the course of such conflicts in the twentieth century. Since the trials of the German and Japanese leaderships for the crimes they perpetrated during the Second World War, there has been some precedent of holding high-ranking individuals to account for the commission of crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocide. This course will examine the legal, historical, political, and philosophical underpinnings of the modern era of accountability, starting with the first modern international tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda in the mid-1990s, through to the International Criminal Court. Topics to be considered will include impunity (especially in ostensible exchange for peace) and amnesty, as well alternatives to international and hybrid judicial systems, such as local tribunals, truth and reconciliation systems, and other alternatives. The writings of political scientists, historians, philosophers, sociologists, jurists, and practitioners, among others, will be considered. This class touches upon issues related to conflict resolution and peace-building, international human rights norms, and, to some extent, the law of armed conflict.

Topic: CULTURE, COMMERCE, AND COURTS: THE LAW OF INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS. Markets and legal systems are becoming increasingly international and intertwined. Consequently, it is important for policymakers and businesspeople to understand the variety of business law systems that have developed around the world, as well as some of the legal, cultural, and commercial principles and concepts underlying these systems. This course will focus on the intersection of law and markets by comparing how major legal systems seek to regulate commercial activity, and what happens when these systems cooperate or collide. It will introduce students to business law systems in three regions of the world: the United States, the Middle East, and China, and examine some of the cultural and historical forces shaping these systems. Throughout, we will consider how these systems handle questions of human rights and corporate social responsibility, and whether a modern, global lex mercatoria (the "law merchant") is now emerging in the international arena.

In 1900, roughly one in eight people on earth lived in a city. Today more than half of the world¿s population is now urban, and by 2050 the proportion will be two thirds. How has humanity urbanized so fast beginning in the twentieth century, and what have been the major consequences? How have the world¿s largest cities spread out and sprouted upward, accumulated wealth and human capital, and become both centers of innovation and sources of problems affecting the globe? This course will focus attention on a small number of large cities around the world dubbed "global cities" because of their influence on regions far beyond their own borders. We will explore the ways global cities relate to their hinterlands. Do they follow the leads of their national governments, or do they instead operate in a supra-national realm, a web of central places linked through commerce, culture, and human movements over which national governments have little influence? This course will acquaint students with some of the best writings on the history of urbanization, city planning, and globalization, as well as documentary and feature films on today¿s global cities and Teju Cole¿s novel Open City.

Topic: MODELS OF SOCIAL AND POLITICAL PROCESSES. How did the protests in Tahrir Square begin? Will China¿s growth continue? What makes addressing global warming so difficult? How can we explain the reappearance of measles in the U.S.? This course will survey a set of models for thinking about individual, national and international social and political processes. Models discipline our thinking about the world and help us to define and characterize relationships and events with logical consistency and precision. Familiarity with a toolbox of models also allows us to identify specific kinds of political and social obstacles to achieving collective goals (such as problems of aggregation and public choice, monitoring and enforcement, or free-riding) so we can assess potential strategies for overcoming them. In this course we will learn about why and how models are useful, we will develop an understanding of a number of models that characterize individual and system level behavior, and we will evaluate current and historical local, as well as international and global processes and events using these models. While there are no concrete prerequisites, basic knowledge of algebra is a necessity.

Topic: HARNESSING FOREIGN INVESTMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT. Corporations that operate across national boundaries powerfully structure the nature of production, consumption, and the distribution of wealth globally. Multinational enterprises (MNEs) can help bring economic growth and shared prosperity to developing countries, but critics often emphasize the negative consequences such large global firms can have on local societies. How can states, international development organizations, and transnational social justice networks harness the positive potential of MNEs while minimizing their potential for exploitation? This course will offer students the empirical knowledge and analytical skills necessary to make sense of the influence of MNEs at both the local and global level, and the attempts to regulate their behavior. We will begin by providing an overview of MNEs in the contemporary international system and their effects on development. The remainder of the course will be organized around three policy-oriented questions: 1) How can firms manage the risks associated with investing across borders (and how can states reassure firms of the safety of their investments)?; 2) How can governments craft regulatory structures and incentive programs to promote "beneficial" foreign investment?; 3) How can non-governmental organizations effectively pressure MNEs to adopt and comply with high labor and environmental standards? Throughout the course, students will learn about careers paths associated with MNEs and development, including political risk consulting, investment promotion and locational consulting, and non-profit work to develop and implement ethical labeling and sourcing standards.

Topic: ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE. Focuses on the global struggle for potable water and healthy rivers. From megacities to villages, we will explore the political unconscious of pollution, the passionate organizing efforts of neighborhood environmental activists, the changing and contested meanings of indigeneity and landscape, and the geopolitics of water engineering and international development in wet and dry environments. Our cases draw from three books by anthropologists, two doing ethnographic fieldwork in the Americas (Mexico-U.S. borderlands, Argentina and Brazil) and one on the Nile in Egypt. Students will engage with the global water crisis in required readings, writing assignments and group presentations of site-based images.
