ANTH 255 Local Cultures, Global Forces 3 Credits
In the new millennium, we are faced with an increasingly globalized economy and culture. This course will seek to lay out the global forces that create this new world order/ disorder and address their unequal impact on particular localities. Institutions that shape the global economy (e.g. IMF and the World Bank), international non-governmental organizations that seek to raise global awareness (e.g. Greenpeace), as well as local organizations that problematize the effects of globalization will be discussed together with the theoretical underpinning of the changing sense of place and time created in these processes. Students will be asked to do research on local, national, and global responses to the different ecological, economic, social, and political aspects of globalization.
