INSTRUCTOR: Hélène Ducros
This course provides an overview of key global issues today and examines the relationship between them. We will focus on a number of specific themes with particular attention to cultural, economic, political, and social patterns: global institutions and conceptions of “development”, environmental concerns, urbanization, migration, the debates over the globalization of culture, and the role of technology. Bring your opinions and join us for an interactive, issue-based discussion of contemporary issues.
Hélène Ducros holds a JD and PhD in geography from the University of North Carolina. Her research examines rural development and heritage preservation. She has taught international studies at North Carolina State University and Elon University
