Globalization

Globalization: So Far, So Good
In the past two decades, we have seen a number of protests against globalization. The most notable of these occurred in 1999 in Seattle, but protests continue to the present day with demonstrations held at, for example, the World Economic Forum in Davos. In this seminar we will explore the history of globalization and study its military, environmental, economic, sociocultural, and demographic dimensions. We will see, among other things, that people talk about different things when they discuss globalization, and that they may be in favor of some aspects and violently disagree with others. 3 hrs. sem.
