Contemporary Western Societies: Globalization and Cultures
0.50 Credits

This course examines the theories and practices that help situate the "first world" as a geographical, cultural, economic and political space. Particular emphasis will be paid to how globalization is connected to the shifts and complexities of cultures and identities in contemporary western societies. In so doing we investigate the idea of the nation state and recognize the heterogeneity of diasporic space.
