Our program of study is built around key global issues: Justice, Violence, Borders, Migration, Race, Gender, and Climate Change. Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities provides students with theoretical and practical skills to understand the cultural forms of globalization in an accelerated, interconnected, and mediated world. In parallel with sociological, political, and economic studies of "the global," our courses emphasize critical analysis and creative responses to globalization. Our approach calls attention to the crucial role of words and images in shaping our experiences of globalization.
Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities emphasizes the analysis of cultural phenomena that express the rapidly changing values, conditions, and practices of the contemporary world. This unique academic program moves beyond common-place thinking about global cultures, and promotes a more nuanced awareness of the productive and destructive effects of globalization. We are not content with simple answers to the complex problems of our high-tech, increasingly interconnected global world. Students and scholars join together for an informed critical discussion of the place of the arts and humanities in representing, interpreting, and negotiating globalization.
