ANTH 134 - Issues in Globalization

Upper Division

Globalization, which can be characterized as the increased speed and frequency by which commodities, people, ideologies, cultural productions and capital cross national borders, has reorganized the world in fundamental ways not seen since the Industrial Revolution. This class examines the numerous issues and problems that stem from globalization, including transnational migration, food policy, and gender relations. Through reading ethnographies about different world regions, students will explore the changing shape of local cultures in relation to larger processes of globalization, and analyze such issues as cultural imperialism, cultural homogenization, and resistance.
