The course encourages participants to identify and overcome the primary barriers to effective global citizenship found in epistemological, political, and historical modes of thinking. Students will also explore how an absence in institutions and civil society of robust concepts of global citizenship can institute dehumanizing social and political practices. Through investigating such practices, participants will investigate how a notion of global citizenship can inform critical thinking on issues such as climate change, international justice, and human rights. Furthermore, students will learn to propose effective solutions to such global challenges and evaluate the effectiveness of proposed policy and action. Ultimately students in this course will consider a range of contemporary, and immanent, global challenges and gain proficiency in thinking critically about them and applying them to their own lives.
