GLBL 301 - Approaches to Globalization

(3.00)
This seminar course closely examines the dynamics of globalization and the ways in which different disciplines try to understand its causes and consequences. Beginning with causes, cultural, economic, political, social, and technological drivers of globalization will be studied. Moving on to consequences, the focus will be on issues such as the diffusion of cultural norms, the conduct of diplomacy, development and public health, environmental challenges, international trade and finance, political activism and state-society relations, large-scale population movements (refugees, migrants, diaspora communities), and the proliferation of weapons. Throughout the course, students will consider how the various Global Studies disciplines conceptualize and analyze globalization’s dynamics. Emphasis will be placed on careful reading, seminar discussions, and structured writing assignments.
