“Globalization” is the term used to describe the scope and intensity of the interconnectedness of peoples, cultures, politics and economics at a global level, particularly in the wake of the technological and information revolutions of the post-Cold War world. This course will focus of three aspects of globalization: the political, economic and cultural. We will read works that argue both for and against the forces of globalization in each of these areas.
