AAAS 87.07 Globalization and the African Continent

This course on globalization seeks to ultimately provide students with a conceptually grounded understanding of the four aspects of globalization: the economic, the political, the social and the cultural.  Four objectives guide this course.  The first is to introduce students to the main topics and debates related to the issue of globalization.  A second goal is to provide students with an array of conceptual and empirical tools that are useful in framing discussions of globalization.  Third, we will explore the multifaceted ways in which globalization manifests itself and its complex impacts on individuals and societies.  Finally, we will discuss the multiple ways in which individuals and collectives are challenging and shaping globalization in the contemporary world.  In all of this, our emphasis will be on the developing world in general and Africa in particular.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
