I100 emphasizes the relational and comparative study of the manner in which individuals, groups, localities, and nations have confronted global issues in the past and present. This course teaches different perspectives for studying and making sense of the world. We will learn how these different perspectives portray the world, interpret events, and often shape human actions. Lecture material and key concepts are organized around the International Studies thematic concentrations, thereby introducing a variety of analytical approaches from the natural and social sciences and the arts and humanities. Assignments and discussion will also incorporate a geographic dimension for analysis. Case studies from different historical periods and parts of the world will be used to illustrate these approaches and key issues.

CASE Requirements: S&H
Start Date: 1/12/2015 End Date: 5/8/2015

This course will review human-environment interactions from a global perspective, focusing specifically on how global change can alter human susceptibility to disease. Discussions will be focused on the general population and environmental changes that contribute to health deficiencies at the regional and global levels. Specific population changes to be discussed include: general population growth; transportation of people and products; urbanization and lack of sanitation; contact with wildlife (expansion into new areas, ecotourism, and bushmeat); war and social disruption; and public health deficiencies. Specific ecological changes to be discussed include: changes in land use (irrigation, deforestation, and fragmentation); reduced biodiversity (altered host-parasite dynamics); pollution; natural disasters; and climate change (altered habitats of disease vectors). Readings will be selected to reflect the general interests of natural and social scientists alike.

INTL-I 203 GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT (23389)

Start Date: 1/12/2015 End Date: 5/8/2015

The course will focus on the specifics of and interactions between the political, cultural, social and economic factors that influence human development at global, national and local levels. We will explore these factors at work in developing countries and seek to blend theory with practical application. I203 covers a substantial part of the social sciences literature on development and will include discussions on dependency, globalization and sustainability as well. This course also introduces major theoretical perspectives on the structure, function and governance of international markets and the relevance of international institutions with regards to development.

INTL-I 204 HUMAN RIGHTS AND INTERNATL LAW (24565)

Building & Room: Ballantine Hall 219
Credit Hours: 3.0
CASE Requirements: S&H
Start Date: 1/12/2015 End Date: 5/8/2015

This class is an introduction to the topic of human rights, the movements to promote them and the forces arrayed against them, both past and present. We will examine many of the key issues of human rights, how they are defined, how respect for them is ensured, and what they are threatened by. The class will not only consider contemporary dilemmas in human rights, like humanitarian intervention, but also historical questions such as how we explain progressive steps like transformations in consciousness and creation and current efficacy of human rights international treaties. Our concerns will be both empirical and normative. We want to understand how human rights have evolved over time, where they have been respected, where they have been violated and why. But we also want to grapple with ethical questions such as how much America's foreign policy should concern itself with human rights, or whether there is a universal definition of human rights. A large focus will be on holistic approaches which address rights through sustainable development. Students will make attempts at activism through serving as advocates for human rights and putting together transnational campaigns on contemporary human rights issues so that you are able to truly, MAKE THE PERSONAL POLITICAL.

Building & Room: Griggs Lounge 101B
Credit Hours: 3.0
CASE Requirements: S&H
Start Date: 3/9/2015 End Date: 5/8/2015

This course addresses the intersection between two highly debated and contested terms -- culture and the global or globalization. It does so with particular attention to culturally-located examples of screen media, arts, and communication. We are bombarded daily with news of how cultural forms are crossing borders with increasing speed, rendering locations across the world more closely connected. Yet such border crossing has long been constituted among a range of contradictory, competing, and even unpredictable locations, powers, and ideologies. How do we begin to understand the ways in which cultural institutions, technologies, and practices mediate our links to the world and that of others? What sorts of dynamics structure these exchanges? How do we approach the ways in which cultural formations are negotiated within or among particular local, national, or global contexts? Finally, how do we address our place, and the place of others, in relation to all that the ideologies of cultural globalization might promise?

INTL-I 206 IDENTITY AND CONFLICT (18326)

Instructor: Bose, Purnima
Day & Time: MW 1:00 PM- 2:15 PM
Building & Room: Griggs Lounge 101B
Credit Hours: 3.0
CASE Requirements: S&H
Start Date: 1/12/2015 End Date: 5/8/2015

This course will investigate intersections between "identity" and "conflict." We will consider how different forms of identity--ethnic, religious, linguistic, political, and caste-based, to cite a few examples--can become the basis for collectives 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, history, and literature. Students will acquire a familiarity with critical concepts such as nationalism, ethnicity, gender, political economy, and sectarianism. Learning outcomes include: 1) being able to use critical concepts to map the vectors of different conflicts; 2) understanding that many conflicts have their roots in colonialism; 3) analyzing how different historical and geographical scales, e.g., the local, national, regional, and transnational, shape conflicts; 4) appreciating how conflicts over identity can simultaneously be contests over resources; and 5) developing empathy for those whose lives have been turned upside down by unrest and violence. Students should expect to take three exams and write one 7-8 page paper.

INTL-I 210 DIPLOMACY SECURITY GOVERNANCE (27093)

Instructor: Khanani, Ahmed
Day & Time: MW 11:15 AM- 12:30 PM
Building & Room: Cedar Hall C114
Credit Hours: 3.0
CASE Requirements: S&H
Start Date: 1/12/2015 End Date: 5/8/2015

Institutions, policies, and events centering on Security, Diplomacy, and Governance result from the interaction of general models developed by scholars with the unique characteristics of the societies within which policy makers are located and with the societies that they violently or peacefully interact. This course simultaneously educates students on two distinct aspects of governance, security policy, and diplomacy: the theoretical lenses needed to understand why and how policies are made, as well as their effects; and, the unique cultures and practices that affect policy making and outcomes.

INTL-I 220 GLOBAL CONNECTIONS (27100)

Instructor: Nemes, Peter
Day & Time: TR 9:30 AM- 10:45 AM
Building & Room: Cedar Hall C002
Credit Hours: 3.0
CASE Requirements: A&H GCC
Start Date: 1/12/2015 End Date: 5/8/2015

This course is a survey and analysis of the scope of global connections and interdependencies in the world today and their profound impact upon individual and collective identities, the rhetoric over human rights discourses, national and regional policies and politics, and our perception of the "other." Through the use of relevant examples and case studies from around the globe we will discuss an array of significant topics, break down stereotypes, contextualize and analyze connections, recognize our place in the global puzzle, and exercise our ability to think ethically about international issues. It will be an enriching and stimulating class that you will greatly benefit from -- both personally and professionally.

GLOBAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING: Human trafficking, an invisible challenge to human rights across the globe, is a robust and growing business, only less profitable than the illegal trade in drugs. Women and children are most frequently trafficked in this 21st century slavery. Most people either do not know about the contemporary markets in human beings, or prefer to look the other way. Where are present day abolitionists? We will seek to understand Human Trafficking as an international crime. To this end we will investigate national and international legislation intended to resolve and rid us of such illegal, inhumane crimes.

THE FAMILY & GLOBAL HEALTH: This course will introduce students to the family and its connections to health in international perspective. We will explore how family behaviors, such as childbearing, son preference, age at marriage, and old age support, vary across countries and socio-economic groups. We will also explore how these behaviors are tied to health outcomes, including mortality, nutritional status, maternal health, and vulnerability to chronic and communicable diseases. This exploration will focus on understanding the pathways connecting the family to health, including patterns of decision-making, socio-economic status, and family violence. Special attention will also be given to the roles of gender and generation in shaping the health of individual family members.

COMPARATIVE POLITICS OF NATURAL RESOURCES: LINKING THE GLOBAL AND THE LOCAL: Are natural resources like oil, timber, and diamonds necessarily good for development? What is the relationship between natural resources and economic growth? And violent conflict? What are the tools communities and countries have at their disposal to manage natural resources? International institutions, markets, non-governmental organizations, and domestic governance structures all play a role in understanding the politics of natural resource extraction. This class with evaluate the ways in which natural resource extraction shapes and is shaped by political forces. We will consider the role of natural resources in economic development, growth, and conflict, and consider the environmental implications of these relationships. We will also explore the incentives and tools relevant for the management of natural resources, at the local, national, and international level. Cases from developing countries in the primary resource producing regions of the world will be explored, with a slight emphasis on Africa, but we will also consider if and how wealthier countries manage natural resources differently. This course is cross-listed in African Studies and there are no formal prerequisites for this class.

HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MUSLIM WORLD: In this course we will begin by thinking about what it means to study Islam and politics and will then take a geographical approach to our subject, one that allows us to identify the diverse political practices embodied by Muslims around the world. Specifically, we will explore the ¿Orientalism debate,¿ which will allow us to interrogate the information, prejudices, and expectations we bring to the table. We will then think about the category ¿religion,¿ the implications for how we can fruitfully engage in the academic study of ¿Islam,¿ and the intellectual apparatus that undergirds the idea of ¿Political Islam.¿ Following this introduction to the study of Islam and Politics, we will launch into our geographical exploration of the politics of Muslims, starting in Southeast Asia, moving to the MENA, on to Sub-Saharan Africa, and dropping by the Eiffel Tower (as all good trips must) to conclude with analyses of Muslims as participants in Western politics.In this course we will begin by thinking about what it means to study Islam and politics and will then take a geographical approach to our subject, one that allows us to identify the diverse political practices embodied by Muslims around the world.

MEDIA SCREENS AND GLOBAL FRAMES: This course addresses intersections between the cultures of screen media (film, television, video, digital) and the dynamics of cultural globalization. Globalization, in its most general sense, has been said to refer to both to the compression of the world and the intensification of consciousness of the world as a whole. The production, circulation, reception, and use of screen media have played a significant role in debates surrounding the both the awareness of and implications for global processes. Look through any popular or academic publication and you will encounter an overwhelming range of explanations for how local or global film and media cultures are made, to what effects they circulate, and the means through which their representations and identities are produced. This course will thus provide you with a set of frameworks for understanding and questioning the terms through which screen media have been produced in relation to particular processes of globalization. For some, such media have been central platforms for the production of an increasingly interconnected "global village." For others, screen media have been a means for challenging the unequal power dynamics of globalization. For others, they have merely reflected the inequities of global processes. We will explore case studies in screen media from across the globe, including Europe, East and South Asia, West Africa, Central and North America.

NEOLIBERALISM IN CRISIS (Honors Section): Neoliberalism is widely regarded to be the central structuring condition of the contemporary era. It is a theory of the political-economy that proposes that human well-being can best be advanced through the free market. An implication of this theory is that the state should scale back on its economic interventions in order to allow the market to work naturally to set prices. Goods and services like utilities, transportation, prisons, and healthcare should no longer be provided by state-owned enterprises but by private companies instead. Deregulation, privatization, marketization, entrepreneurship, and individual freedom have become buzzwords. Critics of neoliberalism argue, however, that the widespread adoption of neoliberal principles has resulted in numerous social problems. These include: increases in corporate power, widening income gaps, unregulated resource exploitation that is not environmentally sustainable, job loss through downsizing, and declines in welfare programs for poorer citizens. In this course, we will examine the features, histories, and effects of neoliberalism. We will consider, for example, the role played by self-help gurus like Tony Robbins and media personalities like Oprah Winfrey in promoting the ideology of the responsible individual that lies at the heart of neoliberalism. We will also pay attention to contemporary crises generated by neoliberalism and analyze, among others, the proliferation of the Occupy movement, the problem of mounting student debt, and the rise of apocalyptic religious movements.

AFRICA IN THE WORLD: This course focuses on four key themes that define the big picture in Sub-Saharan Africa: impact of competing models of governance and leadership, intra-African diplomacy and changing security challenges, new paradigms for resource use and industrial development and urbanization and social cohesion. What kind of leverage can be created between better governance and sustained prosperity? Can international cooperation replace the laissez faire that presently prevails in Africa? Can the development of a "Green Agenda" promote best practices in governance, health and education? This intensive course over five weekends will stress online research, class-room discussion, presentations and simulations to understand the issues involved.

WAR, PEACE, AND THE INTERNATIONAL ORDER: In a relatively idealistic moment in world history, the United Nations was created in 1945 in an attempt to regulate war and to minimize its devastating effects. This was followed shortly by the near-universal ratification of the Four Geneva Conventions in 1949. Yet almost immediately, a Cold War began between the world's two greatest powers, resulting in many hot wars in various places around the globe. This course will explore and analyze the theoretical and practical considerations of the attempt to regulate the use of armed conflict through the United Nations Charter and other international documents. Readings will examine how successful such attempts have been, including attention to such issues as the responsibility to protect, collective security, and the role of the Security Council and the great powers in armed conflict.

One of the most important, and most unnoticed, developments in international politics since the end of the Cold War is the rise of an international humanitarian order. Now one of the defining features of 21st century liberalism, the humanitarian order encompasses a tight network of global institutions, NGOs, and national governments, as well as people labeled as "donors," "aid workers," "life savers," "victims," "perpetrators," and "beneficiaries." In this course, we will examine the growth of the humanitarian system, the ways it shapes international politics, and the ways it shapes both humanitarians and beneficiaries. What notions of individuality and human rights are mobilized in the discourse of humanitarianism? What kinds of action, including militarism and the erosion of state sovereignty, do humanitarian orders permit? What kind of time frames do ideas of "emergency" and "disaster" create for political leaders? What international institutions have grown up around the saving of lives, and how do they function? How are people transformed as they interact with new regimes of violence and care?

This course will focus on the post-colonial novel, as it has been elaborated in South Asia. We will read English-language novels from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. While these countries shared the experience of being part of the British Empire, they developed very different political systems. In addition to considering the aesthetic features of this fiction, we will explore the aftermath of British imperialism on the subcontinent, including the legacy of Partition and communalism, ethno-nationalism, conceptions of citizenship, and the status of civil society. In the final unit of the course, we will consider the US intervention in Afghanistan, along with its impact on Pakistan. My goals for the course are threefold: to learn about the development of the novel in South Asia, to become familiar with country-specific debates regarding the polity, and to gain an appreciation of the historical and ongoing interconnections between these countries. A tentative list of readings includes: Amitav Ghosh's The Shadow Lines (India/Bangladesh), Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist (Pakistan), Mohammed Hanif's The Case of Exploding Mangoes (Pakistan), Khaled Hosseini's And the Mountains Echoed (Afghanistan), Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things (India), Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children (India), Students should expect to participate actively in class discussions, to take three exams and to write one 7-8 page paper.

Wars and technologies are historically related. From the ancient ballista through medieval bardiche to modern drones, how wars have been made and won has largely depended on what technologies are available to whom. The victor has usually been the side with the superior weaponry, although the symbolic and ideological dimensions of war sometimes have tilted the balance toward the technologically disadvantaged side. Modern media have added a new dimension to warfare, bringing the spectacle of war from remote fronts to television monitors. With computerized warfare, the distance between home and front has almost disappeared, changing the dynamics, experience, and ethics of war in a radical manner. This course explores these displacements in the technological, symbolic, and moral aspects of war, with a particular focus on modern technologies such as drones and simulations.

"One Health" reflects the core concept in global health that we are deeply connected with our environment, that our health is influenced by how the health of nonhuman animals (wildlife and livestock) is managed throughout the world, and that our health ultimately affects the sustainability of ecosystems. It calls upon the collaboration of physicians, veterinaries, public health professionals, ecologists, policy makers, and others to identify the complex environmental causes of infectious diseases and provide possible interventions. It focuses, in part, on describing the ecological and population factors responsible for the emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases in humans and nonhuman animals, emphasizing the interrelationships among our species.
