Courses: Transnatl & Globalization (ANTHB351001)

Fall 2013

Class Number: 1070
Introduces students to transnationalism, globalization and what it means to live in culturally diverse societies. Through media, art, technology, fashion, food, and music this course examines the sociopolitical contours of contemporary multiculturalism in our globalizing world. The course will examine the impact of global forces such as immigration, media, and labor markets on cultural diversity. We will look critically at the concept of multiculturalism as it differs across the world, and consider the power of culture as a means of oppression as well as a tool for social change. We will consider how people create and deploy culture through art production, visual media, social movements and other phenomena. Prerequisites: ANTH B102 or permission of the instructor
