Race and Globalization|
Fall 2012 not offered
In the INTRODUCTION TO GLOBALIZATION AND RACE, Kamari Clarke and Deborah Thomas argue for the existence of "racialized circulations." That is, they point to the need to ask "who travels, what travels, and how transnational alliances are tied to particular knowledge economies." In much the same way, this course explores the continued salience of race during this moment of globalization. Does race affect experiences of globalization? How has globalization affected understandings of race and gender? While scholars have argued that a global regime of accumulation leads to a world far less concerned with specific identities (such as race, place, and gender), drawing primarily from ethnographic texts, this course explores the continuing centrality of these identities in relation to globalization.
