ANTH643 - MLA Proseminar: Globalization And Its Historical Significance

Globalization is one of the most comprehensive topics of our time, and also one of the most controversial. This course assesses the current state of globalization, considering it in terms of economic, political, and cultural change, and follows its progress through the semester. The class will be led through the main topics and debates, introduced to conceptual and empirical tools for framing academic discussion and research about its dynamics, how and when it began, and (most particularly) how it differes from earlier episodes of historical change. Students will monitor the course of globalization in the course of the semester, take an exam on the readings and lectures, and develop their own research project on a related issue of their choice.
