Why are people fighting in Kashmir? How does the internet both increase people’s access to knowledge and hinder it? Why is foreign interference in elections an increasing threat?
These are modern issues in the world that have their basis in the past. This course teaches students how to research the societal, sociological, and anthropological nature of significant contemporary events, while explaining how these facts complicate world issues.
Through the research process, students will develop core competencies in collaborating, investigating content relevant to real-world issues, organizing and executing independent learning, and leveraging digital tools to support their scholarship.
