> Subject: undergraduates interested in STS and global citizenship?
> Reply-To: r.zeiss at tss.unimaas.nl
> Do you have undergraduates who might benefit from a year (or a term) in
> London studying STS and ideas of global citizenship?
> If so, I would be delighted if you could let them know about a innovative
> teaching project underway at University College London.
> UCL has recently launched a new Global Citizenship program. One of two major
> parts of the program is an undergraduate Study Abroad Year organised by STS.
> The big idea is that undergraduates visit UCL for a year, or part of a year,
> during which they take several courses centred in science and technology
> studies while at the same time developing global citizenship skills.
> For example they could take part in an action-based course where they
> collectively design and promote a campaign around a global issue. There are
> also courses on the politics of science and global climate change, mass
> media, technologies, globalization and so on.
> They would also have the opportunity to select from a range of courses on
> global issues taught by other departments atUCL. For those undergraduates
> that were interested we would also try and place them on a short internship
> in an London-based organisation working on issues related to global
> citizenship. All together it is, I think, a novel way of broadening
> undergraduate experience while using the critical insights of science and
> technology studies to change the world for the better.
> We trying to spread word of this project. If you know people who might be
> able to help (for example undergraduate tutors), I'd be very grateful if you
> were able to pass on this call for applications. We welcome students with a
> background in natural sciences, humanities or the liberal arts.
> There's a leaflet attached. Also, you can find out more at the program
> Or email us via global-citizen at ucl.ac.uk
