主題と目標
Globalization has brought us an efficient world where we can travel, live and work wherever we would like to. On the other hand, relation among people has changed and there are many conflicts in many parts of the world due to differences in culture, customs, language and even the way we look. In this class, the students we learn not only theories or what is happening in the world, but they will foster their critical way of seeing the world including Japan by thinking and discussing with their classmates. Nowadays, we use the word "culture" very easily without thinking what it truly means. This class will offer the students the opportunity to think together about "culture" and how it connects and separates people by seeing several cases. At the end, the students would obtain a wide and open way of thinking about other people with different customs, beliefs, language and cultures.
