Semester’s Agenda: Begin discussing changes in world order

In response to Trump’s new “America First” foreign policy approach, and in response to other major systemic changes that have been coming along for some time, my introductory course has a new sub-title and focus: understanding the varieties of world order and how world order can change.

I will still cover all of the basics needed for such a course, but I think that this is an appropriate time to think critically about “world order” and the worldviews that inform our understanding of such order(s). Every segment of the class will now include a focus that brings us back to that specific theme. Can’t wait to get started!
