Examining the Third World: Globalization and Cultures
0.5 Credit

This course examines the theories and practices that help situate the "third world" as a geographical, cultural, economic and political space. We will examine how the local and the global interlink to shape multiple cultural and political contexts. Particular emphasis will be paid to the ways in which globalization is moving us towards a "McWorld", as well as the points of resistance.
