Student Grant for Socially Engaged Research and Activism) are part of the Encuentro, and will be reporting on the work of communities and social movements in Latin America and the U.S. doing grassroots resistance to oppressive militarization policies at borders and beyond, and generating proposals for alternative policies surrounding immigration issues.

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 Winter Session 2018 (Jan 8- 19).

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.
