What Is Security? (3) This course explores the different meanings of being "secure." While traditional approaches to security center on national security, newer critical approaches have broadened the concept in terms of its levels (international, national, or individual), dimensions (political, economic, social, or environmental) and process (politicization or securitization). This course examines different approaches to security, as well as how thinking about security critically sheds new light on issues such as war, development, migration, identity, gender, and the environment.

Reflections: United States in the Mirror (3) This course examines the values and interests of the United States and how they are, or are not, reflected in U.S. foreign policy. Analyzing historical as well as current trends, the course explores how American ideology and interests have been represented in U.S. policies such as war, humanitarian intervention, democracy promotion, and immigration. The class looks at what Americans think it means to be an American, and how that compares with the perspectives of others. On immigration, the course explores questions such as why people migrate to the United States; how different constituencies in the United States view migrants; what factors determine current U.S. immigration policy; and how immigrants' conceptions of the United States, as well as their national and cultural identities, change while living in the United States.

Democracy, Demagogues, and Dialectic: Reading the World through an Ancient Lens (3) In this course students engage with several foundational ancient texts, including two tragic plays by Aeschylus and Thucydides' gripping account of the Peloponnesian War. Ancient thought is especially attentive to human psychology; these authors illuminate the diversity of human passions as they are manifest in political life, which is an essential first step to understanding both the sweep of history and contemporary events. Aeschylus shows, for example, how anger and resentment can thwart the greatest efforts to establish justice, and Thucydides illustrates how the noblest hopes can become threatened by fear and ignorance, as well as (occasionally) saved by human endeavor. By bearing witness to the sheer complexity of human relations, these ancient works allow us to exercise and test our political acumen. As such, the class approaches them not just as crucial documents for understanding a distant age, but as works that still speak directly to contemporary concerns.

Culture and Power in International Education (3) Around the globe, education is becoming recognized as a fundamental human right key to the development of individuals, communities, and nations. Indeed, education can help empower, open opportunities, combat poverty, support innovation, and spur economic growth. But at the same time, the educational process can, and does, also serve to disempower people, further marginalize communities, and more deeply entrench existing social inequalities. This course looks at how and why this happens and what can be done about it. Using multimedia case studies from international educational development initiatives, the course critically examines these twin powers of education and considers their impacts on global educational initiatives.

Identities and Intersections: Exploring Race, Ethnicity and Gender in Contemporary Society (3) This course explores the complex and dynamic configuration of identity with respect to the social constructions of race, ethnicity, and gender within a historical, theoretical, and practice oriented framework. A racial, ethnic, or gendered understanding in which one is in relation to others is neither exhaustive nor inherently correct, as no one descriptor captures the essence of one's identity. Regardless of how individuals manage their identities, each has a restrictive scope, which creates opportunities for misunderstandings, stereotypes, and conflict. Students use a variety of resources, such as case studies, class discussions, a group project, and analytic short essays to develop their analytic skills. Guest speakers and attending a dramatic performance add to the breadth of the course experience

Qualitative Analysis (3) This course guides students in the application of a broad range of qualitative research methodologies and methods. Specifically, the course emphasizes three significant styles of research in the social sciences: neopositivist small-n comparative case study; interpretive ethnography; and post-structural discourse analysis. Throughout the semester students are led through the research process to the completion of an independent original research project. There is special emphasis on the fields of international relations and comparative politics.

The Quantitative Analysis of Large Sample Data (3) In this applied course students focus on developing statistical models to explain and predict real world socio-political phenomena. In so doing, students acquire the skills needed to solve common analytical problems. These include the acquisition, management, manipulation, estimation and interpretation of large sample data, using both descriptive and inferential statistics. Students also learn common techniques for displaying and communicating their findings for professional and lay audiences. Students conduct original research and produce a complete research paper. While this course requires the use of STATA (a statistical software program), no prior expertise with statistical theory or software is necessary.

Gender and Conflict (3) Gender continues to be a powerful means through which we see the world and how we see each other. In the context of conflict, social conceptions of gender have been used to justify political and social violence, delineate codes of responsibility for violence and abuse, define roles in the context of war and its aftermath, and legitimize social, economic, and political hierarchies at the micro, meso and macro levels. This course looks critically at questions of power, performance, and privilege and their subsequent implications at each stage of conflict, organized around three models: the militarization of society; the conduct and nature of warfare; and the aftermath of war including peacemaking, peacekeeping, and peace building.

Dynamics of International (In)Security (3) This course examines questions such as: Do states fight more today than in the past; Do they fight in different places and in different ways; Have the dynamics, the institutions, and the actors that influenced conflict and war in the past changed in recent years, or are they similar in today's international arena. This course looks at some of the main factors that have played a role in producing or preventing conflict in the past, and examines the degree to which they have evolved in today's world. The course looks at, among other issues, alliances, territorial conflicts, civil-military relations, military doctrines, deterrence, and terrorism, through the lenses of past and present cases of war and conflict.

The Human Face of Battle (3) This course examines the experience of war from the viewpoint of the frontline soldier, sailor, airman, or Marine. The course seeks to understand what makes young men and women both fight and protect their comrades in the face of grave risks to personal survival, and looks at how policy decisions made safely in national capitals translate into deadly combat tasks for young men and women in combat under fire. The course uses works of fiction and nonfiction in literature and film to reflect on the enduring nature of war throughout modern history. Understanding what our societies ask of soldiers in battle is essential for future policymakers to make responsible decisions on how and when to use military force.

Insurgency and Counterinsurgency (3) In an age of globalization but unequal distribution of economic resources and political power, insurgencies pose one of the greatest challenges to the established order, whether that order is a democracy, monarchy, dictatorship or theocracy. This course analyzes the historical roots of insurgencies and counterinsurgencies, beginning with the Roman Empire, and assesses the causes, conduct, and consequences of these actions, with an emphasis on applications since World War II. Though military aspects are included, the principal focus is on the political, economic, and social forces that have informed and directed insurgents and those who oppose them. Through an understanding of the history of this complex and often misinterpreted field, students seek to define the issues these movements pose and create a framework to assess the factors that precede their rise and shape their outcome.

Growth and Development Challenges of the East Asia-Pacific Region (3) Since the 1950s, the economies of the Asia-Pacific have generally performed "miraculously," especially compared with the rest of the world. Political scientists and economists have offered various and often opposing explanations for East Asia's high growth, with a large part of the debate centered on the role of the state in the economic development of East Asia (Japan; Korea). Therefore, starting with an overview of the performance of East Asian economies, this course examines the development economic strategies, policies, and models of the major economies in the region. Topics covered include: the miracle vs. myth controversy surrounding the economic performance of the East Asian tigers; East Asia's financial crisis, recovery, efforts to restructure and reduce vulnerability to external shocks, and quest to raise and sustain growth in the future; China's reform, economic ascent and integration within the world economy; the transition from plan to market for Asian transition economies of East Asia (Vietnam, Mongolia and Myanmar); and regional economic cooperation.

Political Economy of Latin America (3) Over the past century, Latin America has been a fertile testing ground for a variety of economic and political theories of development. Economic experiments have ranged from liberalism through socialism, passing through various forms of state-led capitalism along the way. Political experimentation has included everything from populist authoritarianism to military rule, and from hybrid democracies to vibrant multiparty presidential democracies. The remarkable variation in these forms of economic and political organization has been matched by the breadth of actors and ideologies present in the fabric of Latin American states. Drawing on the rich toolbox of comparative political science, this course examines how political and economic organization influence each other, the foundations of the ideas and beliefs that underpin political and economic institutions, and the evolution of Latin American states and economies since World War II.

The course analyzes how a combination of sentimental, political, and strategic factors have led to the formation of a wholly unique bilateral relationship characterized at once by both tight bonds and inherent tensions.

More recently, news of terrorist attacks and other atrocities taking place in the Middle East and Europe has made Americans, and people throughout the world, aware of the organization known as ISIS (or ISIL), an Islamist terrorist group that some experts believe presents a greater danger to the United States than does al-Qaeda. This course addresses the histories, ideologies, leadership, goals, and tactics of these two groups. It also looks at the efforts made by Western and Middle Eastern government to develop a strategy to defeat them, the policy disputes that have arisen in trying to develop a strategy, and the effectiveness of these strategies. The course also places the formation and objectives of al-Qaeda and ISIS in a broader context by exploring the recent history and demographic, political, and social changes in the Middle East.

It then examines the cultural meanings of food, as well as the quadruple burden of malnutrition: the important connections between acute malnutrition, chronic malnutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, and chronic diseases related to obesity and overweight. The lived experiences of hunger and intervention are examined in several different settings: among migrant farmworkers in the United States, among communities with rising rates of obesity in post-war Guatemala, and among displaced persons in the Horn of Africa.

Sustainable Cities (3) For the first time in world history, the number of people living in urban areas exceeds the number of people living in rural areas. In acknowledging the urgent demands of our urban present and future, this course examines the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of contemporary cities. Because projections show that most population growth will continue to take place in and around cities, this course makes the case for sustainable development as a way to mitigate the impacts of human growth. The course explores what is, and what could be, by discussing these themes: urban sprawl, slums and slum typology, green urban planning, air and water quality, new paradigms for energy/water/waste infrastructure, green building, sustainable materials, and whole systems design. The class considers how to measure sustainability and discusses the effectiveness of sustainability indicator and examines governance structures, social entrepreneurship, and the power of information technology and social networks in promoting sustainable development and the diffusion of ideas. The transformative role of art and culture in our sustainable urban future is also highlighted.

This course examines international development with a focus on the colonial and post-colonial discourses of the modern, civilized "West" and the uncivilized, pre-modern "Rest." This historical perspective offers reflections on relations of race, class, gender and culture in the making of international development. The course gives particular weight to the perspectives and voices of colonized subjects and citizens of the global South to understand the effects of these ideas on the modern era.

Perspectives on Ethics and Power (3) Every day, everywhere, people form judgments about actions: the actions of ourselves and others, and of corporations, governments, and international organizations. While we care passionately about the questions was that just; was it fair; was it necessary?, our answers are often inconclusive. In this course students learn to think critically and systematically about ethics. The field of ethics is interested in the norms that govern collective life, and in the question of what human beings owe to one another. Serious ethical judgment, however, involves more than mere appeal to convention, authority, or opinion; instead, it requires articulation of coherent perspectives on right action, careful consideration of alternative views, and critical reflection on the limits of human judgment. A variety of established theories of ethics such as Realism, Utilitarianism, Deontology, Virtue Ethics, and Postmodern Ethics are studied and students work to put them in conversation with each other through the use of case studies. A persistent underlying question is whether it is possible, and important, to define a universal ethics, or whether morality can and should only be shaped and defined locally.

Seeing Africa (3) The image holds a special place in the social imaginary, and has a long and polemical history of illuminating the Dark Continent to the external gaze. This course examines theoretical and methodological approaches to visual analysis and its application in Africa. The course emphasizes how the visual makes sense of the social world, and its use in domination and self-expression. While examining the politics of representation as a general framing device, the course focuses on representations of Africa/(ns) and by Africans. This includes colonial and missionary imagery, advertising aimed at Africans and which has used African imagery to sell its products, Hollywood depictions, Black nationalist propaganda, Rastafari and pan-African imagery, famine porn, various expressions of African self-portraiture in pre-colonial through neoliberal times, and the visual in the ethnographic imagination, in photography and ethnographic film.

Why do states form alliances, how do they choose their allies, and what does it take to successfully manage such alliance relationships? This course is an in-depth examination of America's alliances in East Asia from the perspectives of theory, history, and policy. The focus is to explore how recent developments such as the rise of China, territorial disputes, and Pyongyang's nuclear program affect a series of bilateral security arrangements between the United States and its Asian counterparts, as well as the U.S.'s overall engagement strategy with the region.

Students focus on the contested narratives; the relevant political actors; and the key international, regional, and internal events that have shaped the dispute. As well, previous rounds of negotiations are reviewed in order to analyze what went wrong. Students then partake in a simulation in which they attempt to constructively address the final status issues as well as other sticking points, such as settlements and terrorism, in Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking.

Diaspora, Identity, and Culture: Global Indians (3) In recent decades, the study of diaspora communities has raised crucial questions about migration and identity. Drawing on a variety of research methods and personal observation, this course focuses on a comparative analysis of issues of diaspora identity and politics in the light of recent trends and scholarly literature concerning Indian communities overseas, examining the chronology, motivations, and patterns of migration from post-colonial India. The course focuses on the Gulf countries in West Asia, the UK, and the U.S., which all have significant Indian-origin communities with both similarities and huge differences in class composition, income, and achievement levels. It examines the political role and mobilization of Indian communities in different settings, both in terms of lobbying, access and participation, and coordination with other diaspora groups, and the changing dynamics of international politics in a global context through the lens of historical and cultural experiences, identity politics, and contemporary political challenges.

Voices of Terrorism (3) Rather than examining terrorism through secondary sources or information filtered through a traditional security lens, in this course students evaluate terrorist actions and goals through the participant's own words. That is, students examine prominent contemporary and historical terror campaigns through the lens of the people involved. The course incorporates insights from psychology, political science, economics, history, and other disciplines. The course also examines questions related to the reliability of sources, moral issues, and how these works fit into larger themes in their particular historical periods, beginning by outlining various ways scholars explain the question of why activists target civilians when attempting to coerce a state. Rationalists (primarily political scientists and economists), psychologists, and sociologists (and criminologists) have the most prominent explanations for this question. These arguments are compared and contrasted, and then applied to a host of groups and individuals who use terrorism.

This course examines environmental factors related to a diverse array of political phenomena including the Arab uprisings, the anti-Federal government movement in the American West, popular protests in South America, migration from Africa to Europe, and a growing opposition to the Chinese Communist Party.

This course examines how agricultural development interacts with public policy, economic, and environmental change. Key themes explored include the role of the state in promoting certain agricultural models, international trade policy and agriculture, the relationship between agricultural development and industrialization, and the emergence of new agricultural paradigms in response to the failures of industrial agriculture. Case studies exploring these themes are drawn from across the world.

Detente: An International History (3) Detente was a significant period within the Cold War, marked by a prolonged absence of outright hostility or military tension between the United States and the Soviet Union. After two decades of brinksmanship ending with the Cuban Missile Crisis, detente appeared to be a period of apparent peace. Successive summits, arms control agreements, and cultural exchanges created the impression that tension between the two superpowers had finally dissipated. Examining the meaning of detente in a more international context, however, reveals a pattern of continued competition. In this course students study the origins of detente and its evolution over time and in different international contexts and analyze the complex international relations of the detente period. The course defines detente and evaluates its policy implications, beginning by examining early efforts in the late 1960s, continuing through the successes of the Nixon administration and the challenges faced by Presidents Ford and Carter, and finishing with the advent of the "new Cold War" in the first years of Reagan's presidency. The course compares key events in the Cold War, exploring different manifestations of detente across geographic boundaries. The course promotes critical, analytical thinking about a significant period in Cold War history and encourages students to think in an international context to develop their own interpretation of the evolution and significance of detente.

Students prepare written analyses employing the bottom line up front technique as well as verbally present and defend their work. Students also work in teams, mimicking the day-to-day collaboration that exists in today's workplace. Students identify a topic of current interest and focus deeply on it while keeping abreast of general developments in U.S. national security and foreign policy. The analytic work is estimative--students explore the likelihood of future developments and implications for the United States. Students also peer review each other's work along the way, offering constructive comments for consideration.

Music and International Relations (3) It could be said that the connection between music and the study of international relations is that both serve to make sense of the world around us. From patriotic anthems to countercultural protests, popular music has inspired, interpreted, and reacted to the course of events in the political realm, even at the international level. By unleashing the human emotion surrounding these events, music brings the world outside to the individual to be absorbed through its unique forms of expression. This course explores the meaning and impact of popular music from the First World War to the contemporary period.

This course explores questions such as whether they are a talent pool ready to build post-war prosperity or a disadvantaged group in need of social services and legal protection, and should assistance be focused on veterans, or the families and communities they rejoin, from both participant and policymaker perspectives. It also covers a range of contexts, from disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration programs in countries emerging from civil war to the treatment of veterans and families as professional armies return from overseas conflicts. Students are invited to build upon their existing areas of specialization or to explore new countries, regions, or aspects of the subject.

This course explores both the non-violent and violent strategies insurgencies deploy during the course of civil wars, to bring academic theories into dialogue with empirical realities, to develop a broader understanding of the behaviors of insurgencies, and to apply these theories to contemporary political phenomena. The course provides an overview of what civil wars are, what causes them, and who the primary actors are in domestic conflict; reviews how rebel groups are structured and how they recruit members; examines what drives insurgencies to adopt different violent strategies and tactics and which are successful; and concludes by discussing rebel non-violent strategies of rebellion and the effectiveness thereof. The course has a strong empirical component and covers several cases in (primarily) the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia. Students follow one insurgency intensively throughout the course, applying the works discussed in class to their case.
