Course Catalog Entry

Course ID: ANTH  333
Effective Date: 03/02/2017
Title: Globalizing Inequalities - WR
Career: Undergraduate
Credit Hours: 3.00
Description: Prerequisite: ANTH 201, or SOC 201, or SOC 202. One popular story about globalization holds that human beings have been like boats all rising together on a globalizing tide. The course uses data and perspectives from across the social sciences to develop a more realistic story-one that understands that people are not boats and that tides can alternately lift them up or beat them down, refresh them or drown them depending on the circumstances. Questions about those circumstances structure the course. Another question addressed by the course; how can knowing more about globalization and in/equality help us develop the human career in different possible directions? The readings and other materials vary greatly by period, by geographical focus, and by analytical perspective. Note: Approved for the Arts and Sciences upper-level requirement in written communication (WR). Note: Cross-listed with SCHG 333.
