How do we build a political life in this contemporary moment? In this unit, we examine our individual affinities to objects of global concern by focusing on ideologies, identities, practices and politics that have drawn together and divided people around the world. Selecting from fields of study spanning feminisms, environmentalisms, policy, Indigenous, queer and cultural studies to focus on one or more objects of global interest, this unit addresses, as its core, the diverse formations of politics and identities emergent from these global objects.

This unit will explore the challenges posed to the globalising impulse by the emergence of populist movements across Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Looking at the resurgence of nationalism, it will interrogate the future of internationalism and the fate of transnationalism. This is a specialist honours seminar designed to help you undertake a research higher degree or enter the workforce with higher level skills. As such it will prepare you in research methods and thesis writing, whilst also focusing on how populism is affecting policy debates on issues such as, inter alia, immigration, climate change, trade, multilateralism, war and peace.

This unit allows students to work collaboratively in interdisciplinary teams on complex "real world" problems under a theme developed in collaboration with industry and community partners. Briefed by the partners and guided by project supervisors, students use systems thinking approaches to design their own projects and engage in self-directed inquiry-based research to provide final recommendations. In this unit, students will develop their own professional identity through participation in communities of practice and reflective practice, together with an in-depth understanding of specific project-related matters. This experience will equip students with an agile mindset and skillset that will assist them to successfully navigate dynamic future environments and career paths.
