EPSY 203: U.S./International Dialogue: Power, Identity, and International Justice

This course is designed to create a space for students to engage one another in critical dialogue examining issues surrounding U.S./international relations. In an era of increasing globalization marked by the transnational exchange of goods, services, knowledge and culture, examining U.S./international relations becomes less of an examination of American diplomacy, and more broadly an examination of the complex relationships derived from increased interconnectedness, knowledge production, and global economy. In our quest for a deeper understanding of international/intercultural relationships, analyzing power, privilege, and oppression illuminate the potentiality of international justice. In this course, we will discuss war, humanitarianism, and social movement organizing in order to better understand the way power and identity are mapped across global issues. Through our collective dialogue, students will gain a deeper understanding of how people are continually shifting, transgressing and redefining the boundaries of nation, identity, and society which confront them in an age of globalization.  Taught by Rachel Storm, Assistant Director.
