SOCI 804: Sociology of Globalization
SOCI 804-001: Sociology of Globalization
Section Information for Spring 2017
While globalization most simply means becoming more like a globe, the deep integration of societies, economies, polities, and cultures has fundamentally changed social life. Sociologists have sought to study the transnational institutions and communities that have emerged. In this course, we will read the major sociological works in globalization studies, as well as significant works by other social scientists.
