SEMR 410/4018 - Cross-Cultural Perceptions and Representations (3 cr.)



Description
This course provides a unique opportunity for students at AUC to share their educational experience with students from the United States. The medium for this shared experience will be videoconferences held over the internet with university classes in the U.S. This semester, we will hold thirteen videoconferences with classes from different American institutions. For each videoconference, we will be reading the same texts as the students at our partner institutions. The videoconferences provide not only the medium for the shared component of this course; they also suggest the substantive theme of the course. For, while we encounter the apparent cultural other over the internet, we will be exploring with them the question of our relationship to the other- especially how our perceptions of the other have developed over time and how they continue to influence the political interaction between “East” and “West” today.
