SCHG 333. Globalizing Inequalities 3 Units

Prerequisite(s): ANTH 201 or SOC 201 or SOC 202; or consent of instructor.

Description: One popular story about globalization holds that human beings have been like boats all rising together on a globalizing tide. The course uses data and perspectives from across the social sciences to develop a more realistic story--one that understands that people are not boats and the tides can alternately lift them up or beat them down, refresh them or drown them depending on the circumstances. Questions about those circumstances structure the course. Another question addressed by the course: how can knowing more about globalization and in/equality help us develop the human career in different possible directions? The readings and other materials vary greatly by period, by spatical focus, and by analytical perspective. This is a WR course because the topic demands that students learn to pose their own questions about it and to answer those questions in cogent prose.
