JCL 140 - The Global Community

Upper Division

JCL 010  or permission of the instructor.

“We live in an increasingly global world” is a statement most of us have encountered. But what makes this current moment in history “global”? What does it mean to be a part of a global community? The purpose of this course is to gain broad-based exposure to some of the cultural, political and economic issues related to and arising from the processes of globalization. We will analyze globalization as a philosophy, a process and a phenomenon, delving into issues of dependence and interdependence, labor, poverty, development, and the environment. We will draw on theories and empirical case studies to investigate globalization and our global community from multiple disciplinary perspectives, while honing critical writing skills through in-class writing exercises, reflections, and essays.
