ANTHR 1900 - Global Engagements: Living and Working in a Diverse World

(CA-AS) (CU-CEL, CU-UGR)     
Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

This is the first course in the Gateways to Global Learning sequence, followed by ANTHR 3901  and ANTHR 3902 .

S. Villenas.

The path to global citizenship begins with a facility for navigating cultural difference. How might we engage with communities, whether here in Ithaca or across the globe, whose pasts and present understandings are fundamentally different than our own? This course is designed to help students bring global engaged learning into their Cornell education. It introduces skills that are vital for intercultural engagement, including participant-observation research, ethnographic writing, and the habits of critical reflexivity. Students will complete projects with service learning placements in the Ithaca community. They will also begin an ePortfolio as they explore their identity and engage with the international community on campus.
