Cross cultural awareness

DUE DATE: November 22 (Please bring a copy of your essay to class. I also want you to upload your paper to blackboard and will provide details on this later. Unless you do both, your paper will NOT be graded. No late submissions will be accepted.) You will be watching a number of videos from the PBS until the end of the semester. The list of movies (and the links) can be found in the syllabus. I expect you to carefully watch all the videos, and identify cultural aspects and more importantly, the differences (compare and contrast various dimensions of different cultures in an essay format (not in Q&A or bulleted points). By the end of this course, students should have a recognition of, and appreciation for, the fact that cultural differences exist. For this specific extra credit assignment, I would like you to describe how the videos/ documentaries you watched throughout the semester increased your cross-cultural awareness and allowed you meet the requirements of this competency area. Your papers should exhibit a sophisticated understanding of what constitutes culture including an awareness of the complex and dynamic character of culture & historical or contemporary cultural differences. Remember your goal in this assignment is NOT to provide a summary of all the videos; your goal is to show how they helped you understand world cultures and cultural differences. Therefore, a description of a country or summary of multiple videos will not be sufficient for this assignment. You should be able to 1) demonstrate how culture influences human behavior and 2) compare and contrast various cultures (different aspects of these cultures, such as customs, traditions, belief systems, political systems, family structures etc.) in an analytical fashion (i.e. comparative method). Your papers must deal with more than one WORLD culture (although not required, it may be helpful to do a little research about the meaning of ‘Culture’: What is it? What does it include?). Compare and contrast at least two (preferably more than two--- more videos/ cultural aspects you cover, the better it is) cultures from different countries. Also, consider multiple aspects of these cultures. I want you to beyond “Culture A does X behavior; Culture B does Y behavior type of comparisons, think about how these cultural practices make sense within various cultures and how it shapes human behavior. Your essay should be no longer than 5 pages. Be academic and analytical in recognizing cultural differences and discussing other cultures. Papers that cross into racist or xenophobic sentiments will NOT be accepted. Your paper must: • Be typed (12 point font, Times New Roman). • Include your name and CUID Number • Include a title (a separate title page is NOT necessary). • Include page numbers • Be double-spaced (except for the reference list and any footnotes) • Have an introduction, conclusion and supporting paragraphs. • Be organized and your arguments/ ideas should be stated clearly. • Include a list of references at the end, and must cite those sources parenthetically within the text itself. ¬ ‘The Secret History of ISIS’– May 2016 http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/the-secret-history-of-isis/ (around 54 minutes) ¬ ‘From Jihad to Rehab’– Dec 2008 http://www.pbs.org/wnet/wideangle/episodes/from-jihad-to-rehab/watch-the-focal-point-episode/?p=3826 (around 8 minutes) ¬ ‘Tanzania: Hero Rats’ –June 2007 ¬ http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/stories/tanzania605/video_index.html (around 11 minutes) ¬ ‘Mosquito Hunter’– Aug 2016 http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/video/mosquito-hunter/ (around 11 minutes) __________________________________________________________________________ Week 2: Aug 23 (T), 25 (TH) • Introduction to International Relations (IR): Basic Concepts • History and Globalization of IR Readings: Goldstein ch 1, Snow ch 1 Watch: ¬ ‘Ebola Outbreak’– Sep 2014 http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/ebola-outbreak/(around 27 minutes) ¬ ‘Children of ISIS’- Nov 2015 http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/children-of-isis/ (around 10 minutes) NOTE: Last day to register or add a class is Aug 23. _____________________________________________________________________________ Week 3: Aug 30 (T), Sep 1 (TH) • Basic Concepts, History & Globalization of IR- cont. • Theories of International Relations –Realism Readings: Goldstein ch 2 Watch: ¬ ‘Inside Assad’s Syria’- Oct 2015 http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/inside-assads-syria/ (around 54 minutes) NOTE: Last day to drop a class or withdraw from the University without a W grade is Aug 30. ______________________________________________________________________________ Week 4: Sep 6 (T- NO CLASS), Sep 8 (TH) • No class on Sep 6- Make sure to watch the videos listed below. • Realism and Power Politics- Cont.
