Globalization and Education

The course examines the conceptual and empirical work on the social, cultural, and economic aspects of globalization and their implications for education. We shall explore education in light of: 1) the increasing de-territorialization of cultural formations; 2) the emergence of global markets along with the post-nationalization of the production and distribution of goods and services -- with a concomitant premiss on knowledge -- intensive work; 3) new information and communication technologies which are reshaping the structure and meaning of work, belonging and community; 4) unprecedented population movements and worldwide immigration. We shall examine recent conceptual work, in globalization and its relationships to human experience with a focus on youth.
