Textbook Patrick O'Meara et al, eds. Globalization and the Challenges of a
New Century (Indianapolis and Bloomington: Indiana University
Press, 2000. These readings are marked in blue. 2 Additional
Readings Many additional required readings will be provided on the website
or be linked from the Schedule, Topics, and Readings page. They will
be marked in green.
Occasionally there will be short videos to watch and linked linked
from the Schedule, Topics, and Readings page. They will be marked
in pink. Importance of
Readings The readings and videos should be completed prior to the class for
which they were assigned. The tests and the examination are based
on the lectures, readings, and videos. So, not only will the readings
and videos prepare students for the lectures and serve as the basis
for discussions, but they will also appear on the tests and

lectures and the readings, and while they overlap significantly, they

Religious Observance Policy: In accordance with NC SL 2010-211,
you are entitled to two excused absences for religious observances

class if you will be missing any classes due to religious observance
