This class will consist of discussions about global issues, with a focus on the U.S. role in these current events. Students will discuss international politics, read fascinating articles, and learn about certain key players in many conflicts. They will also learn about key terms such as 'Soft Power' and 'Colonialism,' and their applicability to the situation in the world today. The last week will be a discussion day and all weeks following up to it will each be focusing on a specific global conflict with in-depth analysis.
