Courses reflect this emphasis, focusing on questions and critiques of “diversity” in and across local, national, and global contexts; identities and subjectivities (i.e., nationality, race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class, multivocality, intersectionality, positionality, and agency); and places and spaces (i.e., transnationalism and globalization, migration, borderlands, social activism and change, and sustainability).
