Contact Zones: Cultivating Intercultural

Contact Zones: Cultivating Intercultural

Course Number: 

This course aims to help students acquire skills and knowledge needed to promote understanding of individual/groups from diverse backgrounds, without reinforcing stereotypes in the name of ?cultural difference?. Toward this end, this course will (1) utilize, as a guide/lead, the concept of ?contact zones?, zones of exchange that divide but simultaneously connect ?us? and ?them?; and (2) have each student conduct a semester-long ethnographic project concerning the contact zone. This course is a Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) course in certain programs, and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK. Prereq: Students must have completed 30 hours of course work and completed the UK Core Composition & Communication I & II requirement before enrolling in MCL/SPA300.
