"Teaching Globalization: Crossing Borders/Crossing Disciplines"

This one-day conference provides a forum for presentations and discussions on issues faced by educators in all disciplines as they address changing perspectives brought about by globalization. As the challenges now facing students transcend old borders dividing cultures and polities, new curricula must also transcend old boundaries dividing the academic disciplines. To address these parallel trends, our conference explores the following question: How has the challenge of teaching your students about globalization, or teaching other subjects with a more global orientation, required you to integrate more than one academic discipline? The conference will include sessions on pedagogical practices, global film and music, issues of identity/psychology, and global actions/global relations.
