Description

An anthology of Global Studies essays

Understanding the Global Experience is meant to enlighten students about several topics of interest in the world today; to give them insights into the different methodologies which will help them to analyze and interpret those topics; and to show that, through their studies, all of uscan make progress, through the acquisition of information, knowledge and understanding, toward the goal of responsible world citizenship.

The anthology has two main sections: Part I, a “Tools” section; and Part II, a “Topics” section. Essays in Part I offer ways of analyzing, interpreting, researching, reading and writing within the varied field that constitutes “global” studies. Essays in Part II examine selected topics from that same large interdisciplinary realm. Each “topics” essay is written from an identifiable disciplinary perspective —such as sociology, anthropology, history, philosophy, literature, political science, etc.

Questions, and suggestions for other activities, appear at the end of each chapter, along with a short list of suggested readings. Some of these questions and activities help to expose the conflicts and points of contention embedded in the preceding chapter, and encourage the reader to explore such complexities in more detail.
