    The study of U.S. culture takes place among scholars in many parts of the globe, but most scholars of U.S. culture living and working in the United States are unfamiliar with this work by their foreign colleagues. The Forum works to internationalize the practice of "American Studies" in the U.S. by placing foreign and domestic scholars in dialogue. Simultaneously, it fosters scholarly relations across multiple national boundaries and regions outside the United States by bringing scholars from all parts of the globe together for shared research residencies and conferences. It is our belief that these multiple angles of vision, forged in the academic traditions and national contexts of each participant's scholarly community, will yield a more complex understanding of the many facets of U.S. culture than is otherwise possible. RESEARCH RESIDENCIES The appointment of Fellows for Research Residencies lies at the heart of the Forum's activities. Through a combination of open global competitions and direct invitations, the Forum hosts exceptional scholars from outside the U.S. for residencies lasting from two weeks to three months. While in residence, Fellows pursue their own research with access to excellent library facilities. They also lead colloquia, participate in faculty seminars and sometimes offer a course in their specialty area.

Concerned parents around the world need to understand today's global management system which merges labor and "lifelong learning" with socialist ideology, psycho-social manipulation and high tech monitoring. Only then, can we take our stand, equip our children and prepare for the future. For background information, please read: Bush, Gorbachev, Shultz and Soviet Education Molding Human Resources for a Global Workforce Solidarity Versus Christianity Nadezhda Krupskaya: "Following the Eight All-Russian Congress of Soviets [1920], a Party conference was planned on public education.... instructions should be linked with practical work, with the problems of building socialism which country faced... that the range of knowledge which should be taught in the schools at each level should be determined in a new way."

    Fall 2003 0327 POLS 502 Proseminar
    Coppedge M 3:00-5:30 This is a required course for all first-year graduate students in the Department of Political Science. It is what is commonly called a "scope and methods" course, that is, a course designed to survey the great variety of themes and approaches in political science and to guide you through the fundamental debates about what political science is or should be. This course is also about democracy because the best way to teach about methods is to apply them to an interesting topic, and democracy is a topic of central interest to almost all of us these days. There is abundant literature that demonstrates the relevance of our course themes to democracy. Therefore, in the process of learning about the scope and methods of political science, this course will also familiarize you with some key ideas about what democracy is, what it could be, how it is changing, what causes it, and how we measure it.
    3977 POLS 506 Field Seminar in American Politics

The readings provide a sampling of classic and recent theoretical and empirical work in the hope of suggesting where scholars stand, and where they seem to be headed, with respect to some major topics in the American sub-field.
