GBL 202 ORLANDO, FLORIDA (DISNEY): HAPPIEST PLACE? THE SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS AT DISNEY

Examining literature from sociology, psychology, economics, anthropology, humanities, arts and the natural sciences (neuroscience, biology, and behavioral genetics), students will be invited to consider the ways in which physical environments can shape individual and group experiences of happiness. We will consider happiness in a social context and with attention to the tangible and intangible costs of happiness. We will deconstruct the ways happiness is constructed and performed in the Disney setting. Emphasis is placed on the ways happiness is defined cross-culturally and on the different ways individuals and groups pursue and experience happiness. The relationship between happiness and social stratification is examined.
