Enduring Global and American Issues
GOVT 3071
D. Silbey
June 15th - July 31st, 2020
4 credits

The US and the global community face a number of complex, interconnected and enduring issues that pose challenges for our political and policy governance institutions and society at large.  These include sustainability, social justice, technology, public health, security and conflict, and globalization, among others. Students will investigate these issues, and the challenges they pose, through weekly case studies, class discussions, lectures and guest speakers, guided by a number of robust and generalizable analytical frameworks.

Summer 2020 Remote Course will investigate how the Coronavirus has completely remade American and global life. The seven week course will engage with private and public organizations in Washington D.C. and around the world to explore how the pandemic is affecting their work and how they're dealing with it.
