 HLTH 11000-01. War, Hunger, and Genocide: An International Health Perspective
The primary course topics of war, hunger, and genocide are viewed as interconnected factors.  These are influenced by political, economic, and social conditions within countries as well as by foreign policies and national self-interests that exert power to marginalize groups, commit human rights violations, genocide, and produce poor health outcomes.

Recent and current conflicts placed within a historical context will be the focus of our analysis.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the plight of the poor and other marginalized groups in relation to health and disease. This includes addressing questions of power, morality, and international law such as those promulgated by the United Nations.

This online course is offer during Summer Session II (Jul 05, 2016 - Aug 05, 2016). For more information, contact Stewart Auyash (auyash@ithaca.edu)

Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer "CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Culture and Communication as an online course during May Session 2016 (May 16- May 27).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements.
