International Studies at CofC

The International Studies program at the College of Charleston emphasizes knowledge of regions across disciplines and time, providing students with the skills needed to become global citizens.

The International Studies (IS) program is both an interdisciplinary and a multidisciplinary program. To give the program strength and competitiveness, it draws from several disciplines; this gives students a multidimensional perspective to global development and issues. The IS major recognizes that a comprehensive focus on international issues, foreign cultures, and societies is beyond the ability

Also happening TODAY!
The Mroz Global Leadership Institute hosts "Fireside chat with Deborah Lee James on international security and global challenges"!
6pm via zoom! Register at shorturl.at/a0279

Deborah Lee James served as the 23rd Secretary of Air Force. She spent 11 years at SAIC, government technology contractor working on cyber security and technological innovations. SAIC has an office in North Charleston.

In the next 20 years, our country and world will face unprecedented challenge and complexity. Changing climate, aging populations, disease, financial crises, and technologies that divide more than they unite, are already straining our societies and governments. At the international level, the world will be shaped by China’s competition with the US and Western led international system, with a greater risk of conflict. Meanwhile, North Korea and Iran also present security challenges to the US and our allies. How should the US and the international community address these challenges?

Uncanny Exposures: Embodied Infrastructures and Toxic Solidarities at Dakar’s Dump

Rosalind Fredericks
Associate Professor of Geography and Development Studies
The Gallatin School
New York University

Dakar’s massive, unplanned waste dump, Mbeubeuss, is one of the largest in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since 1968, thousands of urban outcasts and rural migrants have sought their fortunes in its detritus, bearing witness to the yawning disparities and intensifying precarities of urban modernity. This talk draws on ethnographic research conducted at the dump since 2016 unearthing the lifeworlds of those living and working on Mbeubeuss as they toil at great cost to transform the city’s trash (ordures) into gold (“or dur”). Through fierce competition, cooperation, and solidarity, Mbeubeuss waste pickers have built intricate, embodied infrastructures of recycling that stretch across West Africa. The talk grapples with the material practices, networks, and identities through which they stake claims to this urban commons and manage a range of toxic exposures. In the context of a major World Bank funded plan to “upgrade” the dump, moreover, it examines the threat imposed by efforts to commodify informal recycling networks. In addition to poaching the value they forged, pickers believe that new state plans for the dump have contributed to massive fires which signal new spiritual insecurities. In the face of perhaps existential changes underway, a savvy pickers’ association is digging its heels in to assert their right to garbage and this uncanny commons.

JOHN GARRISON MARKS
Author of Black Freedom In The Age of Slavery

Prior to the abolition of slavery, thousands of African-descended people in the Americas lived in freedom.

John Garrison Marks works for the American Association for State and Local History and holds a Ph.D. in history from Rice University.
