The path to global citizenship begins with a facility in navigating cultural difference. How do we engage with communities, whether here in Ithaca or across the globe, whose pasts and present understandings are fundamentally different than our own? This course is designed to help students bring global engaged learning into their Cornell education. It introduces skills vital to engaging cultural difference, including participant-observation research, ethnographic writing, and the habits of critical reflexivity. The course emphasizes strategies for understanding others and grappling with one's own identity. Students will conduct projects with service learning placements in the Ithaca community.

When Offered Fall.
