Globalization & Educ

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.
