Citizens of the World: <br>
Using Media to Introduce Globalization across the Curriculum<br><br>
Across the humanities curriculum, from general education to upper <br>
division courses, students are being asked to grapple with issues of
<br>
globalization and its repercussions. Out of these global changes, common
<br>
metaphors are emergingmetaphors such as borderlands and border crossings,
<br>
empire and transnationalism, to name a few. Such complex metaphors can be
<br>
intimidating to many undergraduates. This proposed collection explores
<br>
ways that media can be used effectively in a variety of classes in a
<br>
variety of disciplines to engage students with concepts of globalization,
<br>
connecting them to and among their general education courses.<br>
Papers for an essay collection tentatively titled <i>Citizens of the
<br>
World: Using Media to Introduce Globalization across the Curriculum</i>
<br>
are invited on any aspect of the use of various media (film, music,
<br>
television, video, internet sites and communication, etc.) to introduce
<br>
students to globalization across the college humanities curriculum. How
<br>
can media help students conceptualize and analyze these abstract <br>
concepts? More broadly, how can we use media to complicate and enhance
<br>
students’ understandings of race, ethnicity, sexuality, national <br>
identity, and politics in a global context? How might media be used to
<br>
introduce students to theoretical approaches such as postcolonialism,
<br>
gender, transnationalism, ecology and environmentalism? We are interested
<br>
in submissions that successfully ground practice in theory in their
<br>
discussion of the integration of media and pedagogy in a world where
<br>
national and economic boundaries are becoming increasingly <br>
blurred.<br><br>
Essays should not be more than twenty double-spaced pages (6000-7000
<br>
words) and should follow the most recent APA Style Manual. The deadline
<br>
for manuscripts is November 1, 2004. The editors welcome earlier <br>
submission and also invite initial queries. Tentative publication date is
<br>
November 2005. Please send manuscripts to Donna Dunbar-Odom <br>
(Donna_Dunbar-Odom_at_tamu-commerce.edu) or Georgia Seminet <br>
(Georgia_Seminet_at_tamu-commerce.edu) at the Department of Literature and
<br>
Languages, Texas A&amp;M University-Commerce, Commerce, Texas 75429.
