Honors 140: The Full-Circle Seminar
Democracy: An Interdisciplinary Inquiry
Welcome to HOPR / ARSC 140—the “Full Circle Seminar.” This course is meant to be an integrative multidisciplinary seminar, designed to help you become more knowledgeable and articulate about how your education has helped shape the way you make sense of the world. The theme and focus of this course is (as the title suggests) democracy. We’ll read many different disciplinary perspectives on democracy, and throughout the semester I’ll ask each one of you to serve as a local expert on the ways of knowing characteristic of people in your major / discipline / profession. The major project of this course will be to collectively author a website about the future of democracy in Iran, exploring that complex issue from a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives.
