EDUC 294-01  Building Trust: Education and International Development
MWF 10:50 am-11:50 am ARTCOM 102 Sonia Mehta
This course explores the concept of international development and ways in which education policies and practices either diminish or enhance efforts towards change that is inclusive, just, sustainable and effective in relieving human suffering while expanding human potential. Our approach will emphasize knowledge, theories and processes that build relationships necessary to support mutual exchange, cooperation and skilled advocacy. We will consider questions such as: What are the social, political, economic and ideological foundations that shape approaches to international development? Given historical, cultural and economic inequities, how might we build trust and confidence among people working within the context of unequal power dynamics? How are educators in developing countries best supported as they work towards positive change, and what lessons might be gleaned to guide education reform in the U.S. and other ‘developed’ countries?

GEOG 243-01  Geography of Africa: Local Resources and Livelihoods in a Global Context
TR 08:00 am-09:30 am CARN 107 William Moseley
*First Year Course only* This class goes beyond the superficial media interpretations of the vast African continent to complicate our understanding of this fascinating region. As geographers, we will place contemporary African developments in their historical and global context. The course provides a basic background in African history and physical geography, leading to discussion of advanced topics in contemporary African studies. The course covers a broad range of contemporary topics, including: human-environment interactions (forest and drylands management); population dynamics (population growth, distribution and mobility); medical geography (disease, health care and policy); agricultural development (traditional farming systems, cash crops, policy); urban economies (evolution of the urban structure, industry, housing); political geography (democratization, conflict); culture and change (religion, modernization); development (ideology and economic development, Africa in the global economy); and social geography (African women and development, education).

INTL 394-01  Cultures of Neoliberalism
W 07:00 pm-10:00 pm CARN 404 Adamson, Gursel
*Cross-listed with MCST 394-01; first day attendance required* Neoliberal theory posits the relative autonomy of the economic sphere from both culture and politics. Rejecting this assumption, the course will give students the ability to understand the interconnection of economic, political and cultural practices as well as the ways that economic theories are shaped by cultural assumptions about what constitutes a person, a life, a society, etc. We will read some of the foundational texts from the neoliberal school of economic thought (Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman) alongside more contemporary reflections on the culture and politics of neoliberalism from the fields of Anthropology, Geography, Philosophy, Cultural Studies, and Critical Race Studies. Additionally, we will look at both the global institutions that craft and enforce economic policies as well as their impacts in multiple international contexts. This course will emphasize interdisciplinarity and original research. Finally, in addition to key texts we will examine recent documentaries that attempt to render economic structures visible.

MWF 12:00 pm-01:00 pm Sonita Sarker
*Course meets in Old Main 410* Feminst Re-constructions: Gender, Race, and Nation in the Sciences

This course is an inquiry into the cultural, social, and philosophical contexts of gender, nation, and race in the domains of some sciences and technologies. How have gendered and racialized minorities been represented in established frameworks historically and how have they responded to these depictions? We will analyze the prevailing perceptions of the Ideas of science and technology; the Icons, prominent scientists and symbols of these domains; and the Instruments, the tools and apparatuses, that are defined and redefined. Our focus will be on the roles that women and indigenous peoples (separate and also overlapping identities) have played in reconstructing the foundations and transforming the meanings in some sciences and technologies today.
