Cross-listed: Environmental & Urban Studies; Political Studies  2 credits.  (GIS core course).  Climate change is one of the most pressing problems facing the global community in the twenty-first century. From shifting weather patterns that affect food production, to changing patterns of vector-born disease transmission, to more frequent and extreme weather events that destroy communities, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and require a coordinated, global response. This course provides an overview of the problem of climate change and global efforts to respond to it. Topics covered include: What is the scientific basis for understanding the significance of climate change? Why have political actors found it so difficult to agree to an effective response? How has climate change amplified global inequalities and what special responsibilities do developed countries have in responding to it? How have non-state actors and bottom-up social movements shaped the debate and promoted action on climate change? What are the implications of different policies and forms of global governance in this area, especially at the United Nations? Throughout the course special attention will be paid to understanding and assessing the difficult tradeoffs involved with and complex reasons why states choose to cooperate (or not) on climate policy. The course concludes with a daylong simulation of international negotiations related to climate policy. To earn a passing grade, all students must attend the class sessions, complete the required reading and writing assignments and fully participate in the simulation (tentatively scheduled during the day on March 10th). Topics courses are core courses in the Global and International Studies program and explore a different contemporary global issue each semester. This course will meet for the first eight weeks of the semester.  Class size: 25

Cross-listed: Global & International Studies (core course)  From Brexit to the election of Donald Trump to the rise of ethno-nationalist political parties across Europe and beyond, nationalism has taken center stage as a driving force in international political life.  For even the most casual observer of European and American politics, it is obvious that nationalism plays a foundational role in contemporary movements and ideologies.  It is important to note, however, that nationalism is not a recent phenomenon. Throughout the 20th century, nationalism remained a central animating factor of domestic and international politics.  It is the time where the concept of the nation-state replaced alternative political arrangements to become the dominant ordering principle in world politics.  With the end of the Cold War and the apparent rise in globalization, many anticipated an emerging conflict between nations and states—a conflict that has manifested in a variety of ways.  Nationalism intersects and overlaps countless other areas of political, social, and cultural concern.  This class will explore the historical emergence of nations, their social and political construction, and the means by which they are produced and reproduced in political life.  We will investigate the intersection of nationalism and race, ethnicity, culture, gender, postcoloniality, and subjectivity through authors such as Du Bois, Anderson, Brubaker, Butler, Puar, and Rankine.   This course will be taught concurrently at Bard's international partner institutions. Students will benefit from collaboration with peers at these institutions, as well as have the opportunity to engage students from these institutions on the issues raised by the class.

Cross-listed: Global & International Studies (core course); Human Rights  The course explores the history, complexity and changing nature of diplomacy and international development.  Students will gain an understanding of the basic goals, constraints and structures of diplomacy: diplomatic corps, embassies, consulates, aid missions, attaches, envoys and the use of non-traditional diplomats.  They will then examine the evolution of those components and contexts to include public diplomacy, cyber diplomacy, diplomacy in combat zones and the use of international development as a foreign policy tool.  Using selected diplomatic crises as case studies, students will analyze the roles played by different government agencies, militaries, international & regional organizations, the media, public interest groups, private foundations, contractors, commercial interests, educational institutions, and law enforcement officials. Students will explore how nations communicate with each other in the 21st century (formally and informally) and will use in-class simulations and videoconferences with students across the Bard international network to explore the roles played by different actors in addressing immediate crises and longer-term diplomatic issues.  This course will enhance students’ understanding of international relations, foreign policy formulation and implementation, and diplomatic history.  Class size: 22
