UNAS 1164 Global Ethics and Pragmatic Solidarity (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This interdisciplinary seminar offers participants an opportunity to critically reflect upon selected philosophical and social scientific readings and their lived experiences towards understanding multiple local and global systems and structures that give rise to and sustain social injustice. Specifically, you will begin by exploring your social positions at the intersection ‘race’, gender, social class, sexuality, ethnicity, language, abilities, etc. You will develop criteria for understanding the multiple local and global contexts in which you live towards exploring options for taking actions alongside individuals and communities directly affected by social injustices. You will also explore how action-reflection processes can contribute to clarifying your self-understanding and social position vis-à-vis each other and those with whom you act locally and globally.
