GSP 302 - A New World


In this culminating seminar, students bring together their experiences in the Global Scholars Program, focusing on this question: In what ways do the principles of Roman Catholic Social Teaching help me attend to the germinal call to create a new and better world? The seminar attends, in particular, to imagined utopias, dystopias, and anti-utopias throughout history. In response to their study of utopias, dystopias, and anti-utopias, students will develop and present a “habituating service project” that addresses a significant challenge - theoretical or practical. The project will draw on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, the interdisciplinary work of the preceding terms, and independent research. Technologically mediated, the project will be presented publically at a Global Scholars Program Symposium.
