Teaching “A World in Disarray”

I apparently haven’t posted for 4 months–it’s been a busy time! Here’s a link to a new Vice News documentary, done in partnership with the Council on Foreign Relations and posted on October 30, on the current state of international politics. I used it in class today, and my students were quite riveted by it. I sometimes wonder if I shouldn’t teach a course “in reverse,” so to speak, starting with the current day and working backwards. There are some resources out there for how to do that, and I think it would be exciting.
