This course explores the social and cultural construction of knowledge, including Western and non-Western paradigms, perceptions of reality and constructed meanings. Students investigate many ways of “looking at the world” and of thinking about and interacting with the world, including their own roles in society and within disciplines. Readings are drawn from a wide range of theoretical, narrative, poetic and historical works.
