CGLST 2200 Introduction to Globalization

This course presents the basic conceptual vocabularies that we use to study the perspectives, institutions, and ideas that are shaping the world around us. Students will deepen their understanding of how the social sciences and the humanities study and compare distinct cultures by examining the interrelationship between humans and their physical, political, cultural, and economic environments. The course stresses the overall importance of geographical and political literacy, and of the ongoing dialogues among the past, the present, and the future in the disciplines that shape cultural studies.
