Global Studies 1 GLOBAL HISTORY, CULTURE, & IDEOLOGY Spring 2008 T/R 12:30-1:45 Buchanan 1910 Instructor Michael Jerryson ( ) Office Hours: T 3-4, R 2-3 (Girvetz 2306), or by appt. TA Joe Farsakh ( Office Hours: Mondays 12:30 - 2:30 (SH 3432-R) TA Anthony Morain ( Office Hours: TBA (SH 3432-R) TA Joshua Steele ( Office Hours: TBA (SH 3432-R) TA Haley Wrinkle ( Office Hours: M 2:15-3:15, R 2-3 (SH 3432-R) Purpose of the Course : This course is one of the two gateway introductions (the second being Global Studies 2, “Global Socioeconomic and Political Processes”) required for the Global Studies major. Global 1 is an interdisciplinary course designed to introduce students to some of the ways that the world has been woven into a system of interrelated but far from completely integrated processes, interactions, and transformations since long before the beginning of the Common Era. We will be concentrating on patterns of transmission, dispersion, exchange, and interconnection throughout the world that are primarily historical, ideological, or cultural. Even as we look at the historical emergence and consequences of global belief systems and cultural forms and practices, however, we will also need to look at important changes in global politics, sociology, and economics. By the end of the course you should be able to discern how global formations, deformations, and re-formations, at even the most ideational and subjective levels, have altered the way the world is now put together. You should also be able to assess current events within a global context. Course Requirements : Assigned readings for the course are contained in Global Studies 1 , edited by Giles Gunn and the Course Reader (available at the Alternative Copy Shop, 6556 Pardall Road, Isla Vista). Students will be examined on the reading and the lectures in two multiple-choice examinations, a Mid-term and a Final, both of which will be graded by the Pink Scantron, as well in three, unannounced spot-quizzes conducted in discussion sections (for which only the top two grades will be recorded).
