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

SOC 399D
Fall 2018 not offered
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).
