Description: In this course, students will be encouraged to think independently, be expected to argue a point logically, and sharpen their critical thinking skills. More particularly, we will explore the geographies implicit in globalization and specifically think about our connections (and disconnections) to distant places, the uneven geographies of globalization (evident in both processes and outcomes), and how people's actions through social, economic, and political processes, produce and transform place. This course has a particular focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion asking how cultures are shaped by the intersections of a variety of factors (i.e. race, ethnicity, nationality, class, and religion among others) and providing a space to demonstrate empathy through considering how to understand and interpret others' worldview. The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to thinking geographically through the understanding of how to use maps and the significance of place on identity.
