IDND 066 - Global Society

The globalization of cultural, economic and political life is a defining theme of modern existence. Globalization presents the possibility of a common humanity. It also offers the reality of peoples in intimate contact, yet utterly divided. The great international institutions of the 20th century-the United Nations, the IMF, World Bank, and the World Trade Organization-try to reconcile these differences. Yet they also re-assert Western dominance. This course provides a wide-ranging, historical and theoretical  introduction to these themes of global society. Fulfills the Global Perspective.
