Illinois College Fall Semester 2016 Professor: Dr. Winston Wells Email: First Day of Class Intro to International Studies ___ Notes Introduction: Why International Studies? International Studies is an interdisciplinary study, meaning it involves two or more academic disciplines or fields of study. Prior to 1970, there were no courses in International Studies. So why do people study international studies today? International studies today is driven by th​ lobal issues​. International studies used to focus on individual regions in the world and researchers would become focused on one specific region. Today, international studies involves a broader scope. Key Terms: ● Global issue: usually something wrong in the world that affects many portions of the world ● Transnational: something that affects more than one nation/ crosses an international border; the effects are felt in other nations as well. Global issues are transnational. ● Chernobyl (1986): Chernobyl was a nuclear power plant located in the old Soviet Union. It blew up which led to radiation that spread to other nations. This would be an example of a global issue and something that is transnational. ● “Brexit”: Great Britain left the European Union and their stock market dropped. This is an example of a global issue (transnational), because the stock market dropped in New York soon after. Transnationality can also be something that affects a large amount of people around the world. For example: Human rights violations in China could be considered transnational since there are 1.3 billion people living in China and they can disperse throughout the world. Important Points to Keep in Mind Throughout the Semester: ● Overpopulation is the mother of global issues today. It seems to be the cause or at least in some way connected to every other global issue we will discuss throughout the semester. ● Global issues are generally all interconnected in some way. This makes it much more difficult for nations to solve them, because there’s usually more than one issue that needs to be solved.
