IIS 190 PZ -Senior Seminar

Institution: Pitzer

Description: The course will introduce students to critical thinking and emerging methods for understanding the world in a way that is less bound by the 20th century Euro-American academy and more oriented to justice. The course develops skills at recognizing the socio-political and cultural effects produced by certain key categories and terms, such as nation, race, gender, culture, or by approaching the world through a particular discipline or emphasizing a particular geographic area. The course will also examine alternative categories and terms that are being developed in emerging fields of study, such as critical development studies, postcolonial studies, discourse studies, queer studies, and cultural studies. By taking the course the student will explore their interests while gaining an awareness of interdisciplinary approaches to global and local political and cultural relations.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
