H422 | Modern Global Conflicts Honors

Course Description

What are the major forces that have caused division and conflict over the last 50 years? Modern Global Conflicts is a course designed to explore this question. The course will focus primarily on what forces and events shaped conflict at the end of the 20th century, with a focus on how the world order shifted in the 1980s and 1990s, and why we have seen rising inequality and democratic backsliding in the 21st century. We will explore global case studies within each unit in order to see more clearly how these forces have operated over time, including South Africa, Russia, Iraq, Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Chile, and more. By exploring the roots of conflict, the hard work of peace, and the people on the ground who are impacted by both, you will walk away with a more complicated picture of what divides people and also what can potentially bring them together.
