GLOA 400-003: GLOBAL CRISES: CITIZENSHIP & IDENTITY IN A TRANSNATIONAL WORLD
Dr. Catherine Studemeyer

This course explores changing the ways that
citizenship and identity are conceptualized in a global
and globalizing world. We will explore national
identity, citizenship, and how transnational migration
and transnational communities are challenging
traditional notions of belonging. Our topics will range
from legal frameworks and citizenship rights to the
effects that dual citizenship may have on national
identities, loyalties, and understandings of rights and
responsibilities.

GLOA 400-004: GLOBAL CRISES: HUMAN RIGHTS
Dr. Niklas Hultin

The story of human rights is often told as one of steady progress, with increased
democratization, growing rights awareness, and the establishment of new
organizations dedicated to promoting and protecting human rights. Yet,
especially in the last few years, it might seem that human rights are on the
decline, with increasing authoritarianism in many countries, the persistence of
conflicts, and alarming reports of widening inequality.
This course examines this alleged crisis of human rights from a variety of
perspectives—the political, legal, social, cultural, and so on—using a range of
case studies on specific human rights issues. Among the topics we will address
are minority and indigenous peoples’ rights, rights based on gender and sexual
identity, states of emergency and rights in conflict (including the Geneva
Conventions), the right to development and a clean environment, and
surveillance and information rights. We will examine both how struggles over
these and other rights play out in specific contexts and also what steps
international organizations and courts are taking to address rights concerns.
