SOCI 304 - GLOBALIZATION AND SOCIETY
Globalization and Society is a critical investigation of contemporary globalization. Relying on a wealth of literature in sociology and political economy, the course introduces the students to the role of power relations, class dynamics, institutional changes, laws and regulations, and market and non-market forces in shaping global capitalism. It illuminates the essential role of the state in regulating capital accumulation, particularly in times of crisis. Analyzing the history of globalization, the course presents a critical assessment of the Bretton Woods regime and its evolution, the rise of flexible accumulation, and the contradictions of neoliberalism. Globalization and Society ends with the economic crisis of 2008 and the challenges it poses to governments, and people around the world. This couse provides the students with the necessary tools to understand and alayze important global economic changes and trends.
