ML 307 - Topics in Comparative Cultural and Literary Studies

(3.00 cr.)

Students explore and discuss the norms, values, and beliefs of their own and other culture(s) to gain a better understanding of the world in the age of globalization. Literary texts, non-fiction texts, films, documentaries, student presentations, and lectures by scholars and experts from other cultures are used to help students to gain an awareness of the cultural diversity in a globalized world community. By studying the cultural "output" of cultures other than their own, students gain a clearer understanding of the forces that drive a particular culture. Some of the topics compared include the role of religion and tradition in shaping family values, social and political structures, education, and social classes. CCLS majors and minors should take this course in the junior or senior year.
