Three Stanford faculty awarded global issue course innovation grants
Stanford Global Studies has awarded three Stanford faculty members Course Innovation Grants, which support courses that creatively offer ways for students to learn about topics of regional and global importance.
“Our goal is to engage students with these topics — regardless of their field of study — to better equip them for the global issues they will encounter in their careers beyond Stanford,” says JEREMY WEINSTEIN, director of the Stanford Global Studies Division.
This year’s Course Innovation Grant recipients are:
- DAVID COHEN, professor of classics and director of the Handa Center for Human Rights and International Justice, who will teach HUMRTS 114: Human Rights Practice and Challenges in Southeast Asia. The course will address human rights initiatives and the actors and institutions that make up the complex landscape of human rights work.
- USHA IYER, assistant professor of film and media studies, who will lead Global 110: Love in the Time of Cinema. The course will examine intimate on-screen relationships and how these romances influence our understanding of love.
- ROANNE KANTOR, assistant professor of English, who will teach Global 120: Stories at the Border, which focuses on the social and political process of border making around the world.
