  • Semester Abroad Programme | ucdclinton.ie | UCD Clinton
    Relations 5 credits This module explores relations between America and Europe over the last century A variety of perspectives intellectual cultural diplomatic military and economic are utilized in order to appreciate the full complexity of the transatlantic relationship Key topics and concepts which will be explored include the importance of religious and cultural ties the influence of mass culture the power of ideas and intellectual exchange the Cold War relationship the notion of empire by invitation after 1945 and the importance of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Bretton Woods system American Politics Today 5 credits This module examines contemporary American politics from a variety of perspectives in order to impart a sophisticated understanding of the ways in which the system operates at the national level Drawing upon literature from history and political science the writings of prominent political observers and video and social media content the module will explore three interrelated and overarching themes One is the fact that the United States is in a period of transition The country is growing increasingly diverse a fact which is celebrated by some especially on the left and a cause for concern among others especially on the right In addition income inequality is growing and has reached levels last seen during the Gilded Age and which would be unthinkable in other advanced nations The possibility that American influence abroad has begun to recede fuels the uncertainty that has accompanied these changes A second theme of the module is the problem of gridlock Even though Americans frequently complain about the inability of their elected representatives in Washington D C to accomplish anything especially in light of the challenges facing the country there seems to be little prospect of more cooperation anytime soon One frequently suggested reason for this is the increased level of ideological homogeneity in the two main parties The final theme of the module then will be an examination of the nature of the Democratic and Republican Parties including the principal policy goals and political culture of each America and Globalisation 5 credits Focusing on writing both from outside and within the United States this module will examine literature which stretches the boundaries of the nation As forces of globalisation complicate traditional narratives of national literature and national identity this seminar will engage with 20th century and contemporary literature circulating around ideas of the transnational hyphenated literatures American exceptionalism and the new international canons Public Diplomacy 5 credits This module will analyse historical and emergent roles of public diplomacy as the soft power wing of American foreign policy Key issues include strategic communications and information warfare the promotion of educational and cultural programmes private public networks and the role of non state actors and NGOs in delivering and contesting public diplomacy goals and the impact of new media technologies on public diplomacy We will examine ways in which public diplomacy strategies are tied to but also in tension with foreign policy initiatives In addition you choose one of the
