IGE 2250 - Encountering Difference: Culture and Power (3)


Explores notions of self and other, historical and current constructions and representations of ‘otherness’, and the negotiation of difference through philosophy, literature, art, media, and cultural geography in the US and global contexts. The course further explores the themes of cultural collision and cultural exchange in the US introduced in IGE 2100. Topics within these themes will include constructions and intersections of race, class, and gender; colonial encounters; critical interpretations of the discourse of “East vs. West”; crossing borders; co-existence; sustainability and environmental justice; structures of power and domination; and notions of resistance, reform and revolution. Inquiries are grounded in both the colonial period and the modern world.
