SO 3015
Sociology of Globalization - Level 5
An exploration into the globalization of social life. We interrogate the very concept of globalisation. Is it a system or a process? When did it begin? What does it mean to look at it sociologically, historically, politically, economically? What is meant by terms such as ‘globalism’ and ‘globality’? We analyze the flows of information, ideas, commodities and people that move rapidly around the globe as a result of new types of communication networks. We follow the path(s) to ‘alternative globalization’ through the global justice and environmental movements.
