Opportunity for an hourly-paid teaching role on the Online MA in Global Cultures

7ABLGC07 Creative Leadership for Global Challenges (Online) 

Putting your developing understanding of global cultures into practice, in this module you will learn how the study of leadership through arts and humanities can make a real, beneficial and transformative impact on some of the world’s most pressing problems. Adopting an interdisciplinary perspective, this module will analyse a selection of case studies and creative works that can help to understand the modern complexities of leadership. As a global citizen, you will think in a sustained and critical way about how precisely the study of these diverse case studies (their qualities, subtleties, ambiguities, and dilemmas) can offer constructive frameworks, creative outlets, and reparative approaches that can all serve to think critically about leadership and challenges relevant to global cultures. Studying leadership from an arts and humanities perspective will give students the tools, the insight, and the understanding to ask questions, challenge underlying assumptions, and think critically and across disciplines to understand the complexity and interconnection of global challenges. Students will be asked to share their experiences in relation to leadership as they relate to the readings. When appropriate, references to academic studies and theories of leadership will also be made.
