Contact Zones: Cultivating Intercultural

Contact Zones: Cultivating Intercultural

Course Number: 

This course aims to help students acquire skills and knowledge needed to promote understanding of individuals/groups from diverse backgrounds, without reinforcing stereotypes in the name of "cultural difference." Toward this end, this course will (1) utilize, as a guide/lead, the concept of "contact zones," zones of exchange that divide but simultaneously connect "us" and "them"; and (2) have each student conduct a semester-long ethnographic project concerning the contact zone. This course is a Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) course in certain programs, and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK.
