This is an interdisciplinary exploration of 21st century global problems and opportunities. The lens of culture, gender, power, social position and ethnicity will be applied as we examine the roots and persistence of poverty and the nexus of global health, climate change, and conflict. Students will deepen their social science insights through literature, numbers, and voices from the global south. The course will introduce and reinforce critical thinking and writing and the analysis of data and information associated with global problems.
