This is a core course for the International Studies major. It seeks to give students an overview of the rise of global interdependence (what is often popularly referred to as “globalization”) – in political, economic and cultural terms. In this course we will seek to critically assess the received notions of the rise of “civilization” as presented in popular Western histories and the accompanying stories of European dominance. We will be examining and investigating some of the core concepts of International Studies and our modern society – the nation-state, sovereignty, the market, capitalism, and freedom. We will be examining these cultural constructions, their origins and developments, through the perspective of cultural anthropology. We will explore feudalism, colonialism, capitalism, nationalism, religion and globalization with an anthropological lens. The goal of this course is to provide students with some essential background to the modern world, how we arrived upon a so-called “globalized” world and how difficult and painful this process has been. At the same time, it is hoped that by looking at the array of cultural achievements of the past, students will gain insights into solving the problems of our "globalized" world today. Course Requirements: This course is designed to help you increase your critical thinking, reading and writing skills. Your attendance, as well as keeping up with the readings, is essential in order for you to successfully complete this course. Discussion Section Attendance: All students must be enrolled in a discussion section and attend that section weekly.
