NRLN 3500 - Constructions of Knowledge in the Fields Course uri icon



  • This course invites students to investigate how their fields construct knowledge and are constructed. Its interdisciplinarity encourages them to think critically about all dimensions of the field, from its ancient history to breaking news, its working theories to working conditions, its major controversies to the politics and passions that fuel them. Through theory, case study, film, and more, students come to see their fields as ways of knowing, living, working, and engaging in the world. Department consent required.
