This course will examine the origins, development, & meaning of cultural conflicts around the world. How have cultural issues divided human beings, within their own countries & across them? How have these issues changed during our contemporary era of globalization, with its rapid spread of people & ideas across borders? How have these developments created new global alliances as well as fractures? And, most of all, how can we find common ground across our profound cultural & national differences? Special topics may include abortion, same-sex marriage, sex education, pornography, & drug regulation.
