HUM 320: Honors Seminar
Perspectives on Global Inequality

Rishi Nath (Mathematics and Computer Studies) and Mark Schuller (African American Studies and Anthropology)
Wednesdays, 3 – 5:50p

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course offers an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of global inequality. In particular we will examine how the anthropological, statistical, game-theoretic and economic disciplines capture different information about the following issues: development, environmental justice, human rights, gender, and democracy. The focus will be on the regions known as the global south (or developing world). We will also examine the contests over the history and motivation of knowledge production—that is, which questions about inequality are asked, and who is asking them? The final project will involve students identifying an under-discussed global issue and analyzing it.
