The Anthropology of Globalization
ANTH 339
Spring 2007
Section: 01  

This course provides an anthropological and historical look at globalization. We will focus on theoretical and ethnographic analyses of specific circuits of globalization-tracks through which ideas and practices of modernity travel and are contested, through which ideas about the "other" are shaped, and through which power is exercised and resisted. In particular, we will "track" the movements and reconfigurations of capital(ism), commodities, people, media, and sexualities. In analyzing these circuits and their intersections, we will pay careful attention to ideas about culture, modernity, tradition, diasporas, nationalism and transnationalism, local/global, representation, rest/west, race, class, gender, sexuality, and transnational modes of governance and resistance.
