SOC 375 Globalization

This course examines the political economic and cultural changes that occur as societies shift from the traditional to the modern. Why are some nations mired in debt and dependency while others have become successful "newly-industrializing countries?" We consider leading intergovernmental organizations of the global economy such as the IMF World Bank and WTO. We investigate scenarios in cultural globalization including Americanization hybridization and fundamentalism. We consider intersectional social dynamics that disenfranchise the most powerless including women children indigenous and stateless peoples.
