Stephen was one of 12 faculty members selected for this prestigious honor!!!
Stephen Young has always stressed that thinking and acting as a global citizen means paying attention to how our own campus and local community are shaped by the myriad ways in which we are connected to other places around the world. In order to allow students to discover these connections for themselves, Young – in collaboration with another faculty member – designed a walking tour through the old industrial section of Madison in which directions, audio narration and historic images are delivered in real time via a mobile map. Young also applied for funds through the Global Studies program to buy a sufficient number of devices that students could check out from the library. During the walk, students took their own photos and then used these images to create a photo essay about Madison as a distillation of global processes. The walking tour has now taken place three times, receiving rave reviews from students.
