Studies on Global Society [I Periodi]

Vieraalla kielellä annettava opetus [I Periodi]

We see and hear about globalization all the time: in the media, in statements by politicians, and buzzing around our social networks. We have a broad sense that politics, cultures, people, and organizations are all connected around the world. Yet, most people are hard-pressed to define what, precisely, globalization means. This course provides students with the basis for making sense of globalization and transnational connections in the contemporary world. It will go beyond popular, political and media rhetoric about globalization, and build a basis for students to gain a critical understanding of transnational connectivity. We will understand how events and forces outside national borders inform local trends, by examining global aspects of politics, policies, economics, environment, migration, history, popular culture, and religion. To do this, the course will unpack the three major social theoretic perspectives on making sense of globalization in these areas of modern life, with a spotlight on the emerging, cutting-edge, World Society Theory. We will also focus on the global-local interface: on how the local becomes global and how the global in turn, shapes what we think about as entirely local. By the end of the course, students will be able to describe how globalization impacts their own life, and to apply social theories of globalization to an empirical case of their interest.

This course is designed to familiarise students with conceptual tools relating to the sociology of knowledge that they need for studying topics such as global and transnational sociology. The course begins by examining varied respects in which human beings have observed connections between different cultures and the ways in which their inhabitants see the world; it then traces developments in the analysis of language and meaning that have led to specific understandings of social construction in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.  In later stages of the course, students will be encouraged to collect and analyse examples from their own reading and experience.

Lectures + field trip to a museum (to be confirmed).

Many scenarios peace research engages with are mediated either through visual images or text-image hybrids such as those prevalent in
photojournalism: as peace researchers, we (like everyone else) are exposed to images as never before and we experience our subject matter mediated and communicated through visual images. We often do not analyze conditions, but visual representations of conditions. Thus, in a world dominated by images it is necessary for peace researchers to understand the visual construction of peace and war.

Visual peace research is research on the role and function of visual images in wars and conflict situations but also in peace and reconciliation processes on the local, national, regional, international and global levels. It analyzes the relationships among image producers, subjects and spectators because it is here that the meanings of a given image are constantly negotiated.

Visual Peace Research is also interested in the ways images and their interpretations contribute to or even create conflict. It is concerned with the visualization of peace. And it explores new forms of image production (for example, citizen photography, participatory photography and new photojournalism) and how these forms relate to society.

Methodologically hybrid, visual peace research analyzes such different forms of visual representation as film, painting, video, photography, television and comics including the relationships among different genres. It explores both the meaning assigned to images by means of language and the meanings and connotations images carry with them without the explicit support of language.

Studies on Global Society [II Periodi]

Vieraalla kielellä annettava opetus [II Periodi]

The course departs from the idea that the media is one of the central actors through which national actors become aware of far-away events and through which these events become integrated with domestic policy discourses. However, this process is a complex one. On one hand, the journalists are central players in it as they decide what is topical or newsworthy for domestic audiences. They also frame the events so that they make good sense to domestic addressees. On the other hand, in domestic contexts there are many other actors that aim to influence the public understanding of the reported events. These actors bring far-way events into their political argumentation in their attempts to advance their own political interests and desires. Interpretations that appear widely convincing are typically taken up and reported by the media.
Starting from these premises, the course suggests, the media serve not merely as an arena through which far-away events are introduced to local audiences. If anything, the media can be seen as a political arena in which different accounts of the reported events meet thus constructing public understanding of these events. Sooner or later, these understandings convert into domestic policy decisions and practices.
The course approaches the above phenomenon especially from the perspective of the traditional news media institution, i.e. of how the national media serve as a forum through which foreign news events are incorporated into domestic policy discourses. Additionally, the course discusses the role of social media in processes in which far-way news events are brought into local political argumentation, thus affecting domestic policies.

Studies on Global Society [III Periodi]

Tämä kurssi perehdyttää opiskelijat Euroopan 1900- ja 2000-lukujen historiaan mantereen oman kehityksen, sekä laajempien globaalien suuntausten ja tapahtumasarjojen näkökulmista.  Kurssilla käsitellään teemoja kuten kolonialismi ja kolonialismin menneisyys, jotka ovat olleet merkittäviä vaikuttavia tekijöitä Euroopan taloudellisen, sosiaalisen ja poliittisen yhdentymisen taustalla. Kurssi käsittelee Euroopan unionin instituutioiden syntyä ja kehitystä erityisesti siitä näkökulmasta miten kansainväliset ja ulkopoliittiset tehtävät ovat muodostuneet osaksi liiton toimintaa. Ydinesimerkit, kuten Lissabonin sopimuksen (2007) ja Euroopan unionin ulkosuhdehallinnon (2009) synty valottavat kehityksen luonnetta. Kurssilla suoritetaan myös erilaisia tapaustutkimuksia  nykyhistorian tapahtumista alkuperäisaineiston avulla, kuten esimerkiksi katsaus Euroopan yhteisön reaktioihin ja neuvotteluihin Libanonin sisällissodassa (1975-1990) ja EU:n toiminta Ebola-kriisin taltuttamiseksi (2013-2016). Kurssilla pohditaan Euroopan unionin perustajien suhdetta kansainväliseen politiikkaan ja tutkitaan oliko liitosta suunniteltu Toisen maailmansodan jälkeen syntyvän myös kansainvälisten suhteiden välittäjä. Lopuksi kysymme millainen globaali tekijä Euroopan unioni kaikkine ulottuvuuksineen on maailman nykyhistoriassa?

The course deepens the students' understanding of the functioning of world society and the role of epistemic governance in it. In addition to showing how world culture is seen in the global spread of world models, the course approaches the circulation of global ideas from the perspective of national actors, especially policymakers. In the national political fields, actors justify new policies by international comparisons and by the successes and failures of models adopted in other countries. Consequently, national policies are synchronized with each other. Yet, because of the way such domestication of global trends takes place, citizens retain and reproduce the understanding that they follow a sovereign national trajectory. The lectures introduce the key ideas of the neoinstitutional global sociology coupled with perspectives from studies on epistemic governance.
