The interdisciplinary content for the fall 2000 KSU Honors Seminar explored communities in our region and their links to ideas and practices of nation-building and internationalization. The seminar used KCAC's cluster of themes to organize content and direct research projects. Study of each theme involved both looking at occasions when northwest Georgia communities have tried to define themselves in relation to other, larger national and/or international communities and imagining how the continued legacies of such efforts may shape our region in the future. Students studied diverse materials about, and did research on, a local application for each of these KCAC themes: Reclaiming Displaced Heritages Cultivating Homelands Building Cities Shifting Landscapes, Converging Peoples Educating for Citizenship.
