GEN ST 197
Small-group discussion with faculty representing a wide spectrum of academic disciplines. Topics and approaches vary. Instructor may introduce research techniques or findings, concentrate on readings in his/her area of interest, or illustrate problems and alternatives related to the study of a particular academic discipline. Credit/no-credit only. Offered: AWSp.
As a student in GEOG/JSIS 123 (Intro to Globalization), you have the opportunity to enroll in a one-credit Freshman Collegium Seminar with me, Professor Matthew Sparke. "Local Landscapes of Globalization" (GEN ST 197 T, meeting Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:20) will explore how global forces shape our local landscapes here in Seattle and at the university. Students will have to attend seminars, special extra lectures elsewhere on campus, and do field trips into the city to examine local spaces marked by global forces. The seminars will encourage critical debate about my big formal lectures in 123 and about the lectures of visiting speakers. The exercises will take students out of the classroom too, helping them to collaborate and learn together using the city and university as living laboratories for studying globalization.
