Wilkes, John M.
How do you seamlessly link a course on modernization in Europe and the Middle East (designed to impart a "sociological imagination") with a course on all the other continents in the world (designed to consciousness raise about global inequality)? My j-Jb was to focus on the transition at the end of the first course, which involved being the coach for 5 teams of American students who were about to role play European diplcmats and bureaucrats negotiating with their Middle Eastern counterparts in a 5 hour live role playing game. The larger intellectual task was to construct a mental around the world tour for WPI students with little international experience or background.
