In this course we will consider various views of globalization and how global processes impact and interact with culture. To this end, we will look at ethnographic studies of globalization, considering questions such as: How is globalization experienced? What are the local effects of globalization? Is globalization homogenizing or do various forms of pluralism continue to exist? How accurate and useful are the terms “local” and “global”? Offered every two years. Prerequisite: ANTH 105 or instructor’s permission. Cross-listed as PECO 310.
