INTL 110-01  Introduction to Intl Studies: Globalization - Homogeneity and Heterogeneity
TR 03:00 pm-04:30 pm CARN 404 Ahmed Samatar
*First Year Course only* Globalization is upon us, resulting in unprecedented cultural interpenetrations and civilizational encounters. Most of what animates this condition is old. However, the contemporary velocity, reach, and mutations of these forces suggest a new “world time,” full of contradictions, perils, and promises. This course introduces students to globalization by posing the following questions: What is globalization, and how does one study it? What are the paramount ecological, cultural, economic, and political factors that shaped and propel it? What are the consequences, and how do we respond?

MWF 02:20 pm-03:20 pm CARN 404 Murat Altun
Updated course description: Why are certain religions believed to be inherently violent while others are believed to be peaceful? How do we examine violent acts such as 9/11, the rise of ISIS and the Charlie Hebdo attacks? The aim of this course is to understand how and why political violence crosscuts religious discourses and practices. How do we classify what is violent and what is not? While examining historical and contemporary cases (Palestine/Israeli, Indonesia, Myanmar), where religion, violence, and politics intersect, students will engage with the political implications of religious difference and secularism in a comparative perspective.

INTL 494-01  Pandemics: When Globalization and Diseases Collide
W 07:00 pm-10:00 pm CARN 404 Christy Hanson
*Course to meet in Carnegie 411* Historically, infectious diseases have been among the great equalizers of nations. Infectious diseases cross borders with little respect for societal hierarchy or political position in the world order. Pandemics have repeatedly challenged the notion of the nation state, religious and political ideology and social structures. Modern day pandemics have the ability to spread further geographically, reflecting our ever more globalized world. Pandemics can concurrently reflect strong nationalist (almost isolationist) tendencies, alongside growing reliance on a global governance structure. However, they also increasingly reveal society’s marginalized peoples and their limited participation in and attention from government. Through the stories of historical and modern day pandemics, students will explore what pandemics can show us about disparities in development, social order(s), governance models, political and societal priorities and norms, inter-connectedness of nations / peoples, and economic decision-making.
