Advanced Research Seminar: Marx: CAPITAL: A CRITIQUE OF POLITICAL ECONOMY, Vol. I

SOC 399D
Fall 2015
Section: 01  
Certificates: International Relations

This course fulfills the sociology capstone advanced seminar requirement. The course will focus on Vol. I of CAPITAL, which is arguably the single most important text in Marx's oeuvre. Students will be asked to write an extensive research paper on any of the key issues Marx dealt with in Vol. I or other relevant topics. The paper can be either an in-depth analysis/critique of Marx's arguments or can use his arguments to show how they are/are not relevant to analyze contemporary issues (e.g., on ideology and fetishism; the working day; surplus value or exploitation; labor issues; ethnicity or race, gender, and class divisions; immigration; the role of slavery or colonialism in the development of capitalism; uneven geographic development/imperialism/globalization, or other relevant topics of their choice).
