UAR 51: Uncovering Your Political Identity

We may not fully understand ¿politics,¿ yet we are always subject to it. What does it mean to become politicizied? What conditions promote politicization? The course supports a personal inquiry into one¿s political identity, the ¿political skin you¿re in¿ ¿ its attributes, what has shaped it, its current compared to desired state. By describing attributes and recalling early influencers/influences on one¿s political consciousness, students will in turn discover more about political conscience and its implications for personal political speech and action. An OpenXChange program.

UAR 61: Religion and Identity

This one-unit course will focus on issues of religion and identity, especially as it relates to what our religious commitments (whether strong, weak, or non-existent) mean for our social and political engagement with society at large. This will be a student-driven, conversation-heavy course. The experiences of the students in the class will help shape the exact nature of the questions we explore together. After getting to know each other at the first session, we will use short articles to organize our discussion for the rest of the class meetings. Possible conversation starters include: the debate over the hijab in French public schools, altered states and religious freedom in the US, Buddhism and political violence in Myanmar, gay marriage and civil disobedience in the US. The course will meet from 3:30-5 on alternating Fridays (weeks 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) in the SLE Office in Florence Moore Hall. An OpenXChange program.

UAR 71: Returning from Study Abroad

In this course, students will find the space to define their study abroad experience as well as articulate the ways in which their worldview perspectives may have shifted. Therefore, students will engage in deep mutual exchanges and personal introspection about their experiences abroad. Throughout the course, we will define their experience abroad while continually making-meaning as their new perspectives are supported and challenge amongst members of the Stanford community. Students will end the course by crafting action steps for moving forward with the ability to tell their study abroad story in compelling ways that can be applied to personal, social, academic, and professional realms of their lives.
