Cultural Diplomacy and International Education

In this interactive seminar, students critically consider the goals, design, and experience of international and intercultural education. Using case studies, the course examines the role that race, class, and power play in international education and focuses on how identity, institutional biography, and culture structure interpretations and interactions in cross-cultural contexts. Students gain the frameworks and skills necessary to design and implement culturally-responsive international and intercultural education programs. Designed for prospective international trainers, program managers, and educators, the course focuses on the educational arena but is broadly applicable to anyone planning to work in diverse environments.

Diplomatic Practice

This seminar studies diplomacy in theory, history, and practice, as a political process and as an instrument of foreign policy. It covers diplomats' relations with their own governments as well as the countries in which they serve; how they use information on the politics, economics, and society of their host nation; the origin and costs of mistakes; and the future of diplomacy in an era of globalization and instant communication. It seeks to illustrate approaches to diplomacy through historical examples and contemporary case studies, linking diplomatic practice to current events.
