This course will give you an introduction to a conceptual and empirical inquiry on globalization from an interdisciplinary perspective including human ecology, peace and development studies, regional studies and social anthropology. You will be introduced to key concepts used to analyse the contemporary process of globalization: such as disembeddedness, homogenization, interconnectedness, mobility, mixing and reembeddedness.
You will also be encouraged to critically reflect on questions of how “the local” and “the global” relate to each other and how contemporary globalization affect life prospects, environments, gender relations, livelihoods, and conflict patterns in different parts of the globe.
