School:Huron University College

Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:International/Global Studies
Description:Degree modules in Global Culture Studies approach the broad range of subjects and problems of interest to Global Studies in terms of the ideas that shape contemporary global issues. Global Culture Studies students examine how the networks through which people interact and confront one another are caught within and typically interpreted through specific and often conflicting ways of knowing and making sense of the world and one's place in it. Moreover, students investigate the social and political actions that make these forms of global culture possible.

Global Culture Studies students pursue mostly theoretical and critical analyses into how the people of the world divide themselves in terms of: social and cultural identities; geographical spaces and places; political values and ideals; legal norms and definitions; and forms of human subjectivity and rights. Along the way, students focus their studies on such specific problems as: the relationship between thought and action; the conflict in human rights claims between citizens and refugees; the ordering of global politics in terms of gender; the force of law in shaping societies globally; postcolonial difference and resistance; the racialisation of identities; global ethics and responsibilities; and the formations and transgressions of borders, boundaries, territories, and frontiers.
