Good Work in the Era of Globalization
In this advanced interdisciplinary & comparative graduate seminar we shall explore Good Work in the Era of Globalization by delving in basic social science work in research anthropology, research sociology, & research psychology. We shall do so critically examining various basic texts on globalization & various notions of the good life. After a series of lectures introducing advanced graduate students to the Good Work Project led by Professor Howard Gardner & the Globalization & Learning project led by Prof. Suarez-Orozco, we will turn our focus to basic scholarship in different regions of the world. We shall focus on two broad areas of the world - Asia & the Americas & one or two areas of work (such as journalism & medicine) will be probed in some depth. At the conclusion of the seminar, we will consider how educational institutions can mediate & modulate the potent forces of globalization.
