World Simulation Class

Dr. Wesch continues to provide programmes that embolden’s one’s resolve for global change.

Emotions: Moved, Inspired, Provoked to continually be a change agent.

Effect: Need to share the videos to provide a micro representation of occurrences on the macro level.

From Dr. Wesch’s words ~
(This) is a massive experiment in education created for (and by) my Introduction to Cultural Anthropology class at Kansas State University. Each semester I teach 200-400 students. They are divided into 14-20 groups and asked to create their own realistic cultures. We then work together to create the parameters that will allow us to simulate the past 600 years of world history, from colonization to corporate globalization, all in the span of 75-100 minutes. This video was created in a mad weekend of video-editing. We watch the video together and then discuss what worked, what didn’t, and why, and then we reflect on how the world works, our role within it, and how we can live in ways that create a better world.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has
Margaret Mead, Cultural Anthropologist (1901-1978)
