Crossing Borders: Multidisciplinary Perspectives in International Studies
This session presents a strategy for integrating multiple disciplinary perspectives into the international studies curriculum. It follows the model introduced in Crossing Borders: International Studies for the 21st Century (Harry I. Chernotsky and Heidi H. Hobbs, CQ Press, SAGE Publications, 2018, 3rd edition). It suggests four analytical themes that might frame the curriculum and ways to apply them through case briefs. It also features a group activity, Our Global Village, that emphasizes the idea of global citizenship. The session offers a blend of substantive material and hands-on guidance and speaks directly to the challenge of encouraging collaborations between international offices and faculty engaged in campus internationalization initiatives.
