What is research, and what are its uses? How do we know what we know?
This course introduces students to interdisciplinary research methods and theories for conducting global research. Students practice a variety of hands-on research methods including archival oral history, interviews, mapping, textual analysis, and ethnography. Texts, discussions, and projects focus on the politics and practice of research, different creative forms research can take, approaching global research “from below,” and how researchers can work in solidarity with communities.
You don’t have to be an ICS Major to take this course.
