Put yourself in a pair of somebody’s boots in Iraq — how does if feel?
Sam Richards encourages students to engage more fully with the world and to think for themselves — something he claims that he did not do until his third year in college. Because of his passion for challenging students to open their minds, an interviewer recently referred to him as “an alarm clock for eighteen-year-olds.” Every semester, 725 students register for his Race and Ethnic Relations course, one of the most popular classes at Penn State. In this lecture, he challenges students to visualize the world differently — for the perspectives of insurgents living in Iraq. THIS IS NOT ABOUT TAKING SIDES — its a thought experiment.
I see you — you see me… empathy?
