Global Perspectives

Global Perspectives courses are designed to introduce students to the opportunities and challenges of living in an increasingly globalized world. As the St. Thomas Strategic Plan notes, our world is “marked by social, cultural, political, technological and economic interdependence and integration across local, national and international boundaries”; thus “understanding and integrating global knowledge, perspectives and intercultural competencies is essential to living, working and serving.”

The study of and dialogue with world cultures is central to the idea of a Catholic university. Ex Corde Ecclesiae, for example, calls for an impartial search for truth, “a search that is neither subordinated to nor conditioned by particular interests of any kind.” It exhorts Catholic universities to “become more attentive to the cultures of the world today” and to realize that various diverse cultures provide “a wealth for the whole of the human family.” [Ex Corde Ecclesiae, 7, 45]

A course may satisfy GP and the Integrations in the Humanities requirement; however, a single course cannot satisfy both GP and a core-area requirement (other than Integrations in the Humanities) for the same student.

Students must take four credits.

Some sections of a course may carry the GP flag while others do not. Students should use ClassFinder to determine which course sections satisfy the GP requirement in the term for which you are completing the requirement. 

A study abroad course which spends 20 days abroad (including travel days) will automatically meet the GP requirement (such a study abroad course may also meet another core-area requirement).

International students are counted as having satisfied the Global Perspectives requirement.

How have heroic ideals changed from Beowulf to the 18th century? How did marriage evolve from an arrangement between tribes and families to love between two people?

In this course we will consider how our traditional perception of words and meaning (e.g. the practice of looking up definitions of a word in the dictionary) fails to explain how we communicate and understand one another’s thoughts, feelings, needs, etc. As successful communicators, we constantly rely on our contextual knowledge to interpret what speakers intend to say, and the study of Pragmatics provides us with insight into this process. In addition to studying different linguistic phenomena in Spanish, we will also take into account differences between Spanish and English. First 60 minutes via Zoom + asynchronous work

This section involves an examination of the views of various religions and ideologies on issues of justice and peace, with special attention to the Catholic and other Christian teachings on such issues as war and peace, violence, economic justice, the environment, criminal justice, and social justice. Special attention is given to how fundamental presuppositions and principles of each group studied affect their views on justice and peace, and contribute to or hinder dialogue and peaceful interaction with other groups. In addition to Christianity, students will study (at least) one far eastern worldview (e.g. Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism), one tribal religion (Native American, African), Islam, and one secular worldview (e.g. Marxism, capitalism, secular humanism). Students are required to investigate one worldview in depth through a semester-long research project.

In this course, students will explore approaches to theology that emerge out of diverse cultural contexts. Sections may focus on biblical interpretation, dynamics of church life, mission work, or transnational solidarity through the eyes of the marginalized, or they may focus on efforts to articulate and bear witness to the gospel amid new cultures and historical challenges, according to the instructor’s discretion. Sections may focus on experiences of marginalization and oppression as a source for theological reflection for women (giving rise to feminist/womanist/mujerista theologies, for example), or for people of color or indigenous peoples (giving rise to Latin American, African-American, Minjung, and South African liberation theologies, for example), or for economically exploited classes (also giving rise to liberation theologies). This course will thus provide an opportunity to learn how the global Christian community is gaining fresh insights into the gospel that were missed when the dominant perspective on theology reflected primarily the experience of European men, or to learn how claims by Christians have at various times served both to challenge and to reinforce systems of power and privilege.

At the end of the course, it will be important for students to have a grasp on the historical timeline, key figures, common texts and practices of each of the traditions covered throughout the semester. The main concern of the course is for students to develop a greater understanding of and appreciation for how religion is embedded in all dimensions of human experience, meaning that religion, despite the emphasis in the West, is not simply a matter of private beliefs, but has implications for our public life together. We will engage both historical and contemporary events as we attempt to understand how religion both shapes and is shaped by the political, cultural and social dimensions of our world.

In the last two decades, Islam and Muslims have become a major topic of discussion in American and European media, politics, and society. A constant refrain in this discussion is the question of the compatibility of Islam and Muslims with modern, secular, Western ideas and values. This course will complicate this sort of questioning by examining the complexity and diveristy of the relationships between Islam, modernity, and the West. It will look examine the rise of modern ideas and values in Europe, their challenge to Christianity, and their worldwide spread through colonialism and globalization, and trace the history of Muslim intellectual and theological responses to modernity. It will examine Muslim modernist, traditionalist, reformist, fundamentalist, and Islamist movements and figures from the eighteenth century to the present and focus on how Muslim thinkers have responded to such modern issues as colonialism, modern science and technology, democracy, gender, human rights, the environment, and living in a pluralistic world.

Modernist artists strove to find a visual language of expression appropriate to their time; yet many contemporaries found their works incomprehensible, as do many people today. An open-minded and historically informed investigation of modern art helps to make sense of it. This course will explore the history of European painting and sculpture from 1880 to 1940. It will consider the many movements that characterized modernism, such as Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, and Constructivism. Issues to be addressed include the rejection of tradition, the development of abstraction, the impact of World War I and its aftermath, the influence of science and technology on art, and the fate of modernism under Hitler's and Stalin's regimes. Particular attention will be paid to the theoretical underpinnings of modern art.

Threaded throughout the literature are themes such as revolution and reform, authorship, war, nationality and race, and the relationships between literature and other arts. This course fulfills the Historical Perspectives requirement in the English major. Prerequisites: ENGL 121 or 190.

This specific offering of the course examines 20th and 21st century literary representations of afro-identity in Latin America, the Spanish Caribbean and Equatorial Guinea with special attention to the intersections of race, gender, class, and nationality. We will analyze how the work of art (a literary text, a movie, a painting, a song, to name a few examples) serves as a space for reflection on concepts such as ‘race,’ ethnicity, hegemony, resistance, multiculturalism, and hybridity. Primary readings will be supplemented by relevant historical, critical, and theoretical texts. Along with these readings we will also view documentaries and films that deal specifically with issues of race and ethnicity within these minority communities. Class discussion will focus on how identities are constructed within the space of fiction and other artistic representations. The objective for this course offering is to provide an overview of contemporary literary works by Latin American, Caribbean and Equatorial Guinean writers of African descent. Monday and Wednesday in person, Friday online/asynchronous.

This course will explore various approaches to God and God's relationship to humankind, including perspectives written by people traditionally on the margins of theological research. A central question for this section will be how God responds to injustice. This course explores the role of scripture, history, tradition and experience in the understanding of God. It examines both old and new theologies, asking key theological questions such as, “What difference does it make how people picture God?” “How could a good God create a world where evil and suffering are possible?” or “If God has a plan for the world, are we free to make our own choices?”
