General description

“North American In/Securities: A Local-Global Nexus” is a two-day symposium organized by the John Morton Center for North American Studies that can be taken as a 5-credit course by the University of Turku students. This course deals with late twentieth century and early twenty-first century security concerns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and their global implications.  In particular, we will examine three tensions that characterize current security concerns: 1) national security vs. human security, 2) policy measures vs. grassroots activism, and 3) scholarly discourses vs. popular culture interventions. The multidisciplinary sessions include "Urban Ethnoracial Insecurites"; "Policy, Practice, and Rhetoric of In/Security"; "Grassroots Activism against Insecurity"; "Cross-border In/Securities"; and "Playing, Performing, and Reading In/Security."  Underscoring the multiple scales at which security issues are explicated, experienced, and represented, the symposium points to their far-reaching geographic, political, socioeconomic, military, and cultural ramifications.

The evaluation of the course consists of attendance on both days of the symposium, a 6-page lecture diary, and an 8-10-page essay.
