SOC 441 - Sociology of Globalization (3 cr.)


Utilizes a sociological perspective to critically examine the current dynamics of what is now known as “globalization.” By placing individual biographies within a larger systemic perspective, sociology provides a crucial lens for developing an analysis of the causes and consequences of globalized economies, politics, media, and culture. Phenomena glossed as globalization have differing impacts on individuals and societies. Differently situated individuals experience globalization in varying ways. Sociology is uniquely positioned to analyze these dynamics in terms of the salience of larger categories such as gender, race, class, geopolitical location. Additionally, sociological themes such as power of transnational corporations and social movements that aim to resist that power will be addressed in the course.
