this activity, you will select an issue or event in globalization and explore it

this activity, you will select an issue or event in globalization and explore it throuthis activity, you will select an issue or event in globalization and explore it through the four general education interdisciplinary lenses. By viewing the issue/event through these lenses, you will gain insight into how the interconnected nature of globalization affects society. The four general education interdisciplinary lenses are history, humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social science.
History is the study of the past and its connection to the present. It encompasses content, memories, and events situated in time.
Humanities is the study of cultures’ creative expression and contemplates metaphor, experience, and meaning.
Natural and applied sciences study the material world grounded in the scientific method.
Social sciences study human relationships and social structures grounded in demographic and statistic measurements.
When we look at an event in our lives, we often jump between different frameworks to make sense of it. For instance, if we attend a music concert we might move from an artistic lens (How did they create the musical score?) to a technical lens (How does all the lighting work?) to a financial lens (How much money do the performers earn?). Similarly, looking through the general education interdisciplinary lenses can help us see things from other perspectives by giving us a conscious way to analyze them, helping to broaden our perspective.
