Centre for Global Studies
In Huron’s Centre for Global Studies students confront problems of global inequalities, explore forms of globalization at human scales, and analyse the concepts, ideas, and cultural work ordering of life in this world. Students learn to critically locate themselves in global power relations and practical ways in which they may take responsibility for their positions of privilege.
Through interdisciplinary, critical, and collaborative studies, Centre for Global Studies courses and academic programs engage global problems in relation to community–level experiences. They support students in specifically feminist, anti–racist, decolonial, and anti–oppressive programs of research. And students train in methods of social research and analysis, applied skills, and theoretical criticism preparing them for success in a wide variety of graduate programs and professional schools.
