GLS 2700: (PL) Introduction to Global Stories (ONLINE)

  • Instructor: Nicole Coleman, CMLLC
  • Introduction to Global Stories is a humanities-based course focusing on literature, film, and other story-telling genres from around the world. It will provide an introduction to the analytical, critical and speculative methods that make up the toolkit of humanistic inquiry. It will provide students with an introductory understanding of constructions and representations of global issues and globalization in literature, film, media and the visual arts, and of the ways in which human stories contribute to complex matrices of representation. It will address how human stories respond and give meaning to complex interactions among global processes, regional and local cultures, and societal structures. Finally, it will explore the extent to which specific human stories, created within specific contexts, do or do not transcend the boundaries of those contexts to become global stories.
