Course Description

Globalization encompasses the processes and awareness of increasing international integration and interdependence. This course will examine key theoretical, economic, social, political, cultural and environmental aspects of globalization. Issues of space (e.g. empirical, network, embodied) and scale (e.g. glocalization) are inherent to globalization and will provide the unifying theme of the course.

Topics to be addressed include, for example: uneven development, economic governance, global commodity chains and networks, local-global interplays, international environmental regimes and transnational mobility. These will be team-taught by staff, often using examples drawn from their own fields of research.
