The Anthropology of Globalization

ANTH 339
Spring 2011 not offered
Certificates: International Relations

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, east/west, race, class, gender, sexuality, and transnational modes of governance and resistance.
