Special Topics Global and Transcultural Communication: Transcultural Media
This course is not intended to be a general survey of globalization studies. It presumes some prior exposure to the popular & academic literature on globalization, especially from the vantage point of anthropology, media studies, sociology, & political science. The focus of the course is on the study of certain crises symptomatic of the present state of globalization, notably in the fields of finance, territory, & bodily violence. The course seeks to equip students to approach these crises from a historically informed point-of-view, & to develop some creative positions on the politics of hope in the era of globalization.
