Processes of globalization shape contemporary life in varied and contradictory ways. Globalization intensifies economic and cultural movements across borders even as nationalism persists as a powerful force. This course examines the how such processes are shaped by gender and asks how globalization affects the lives of women in comparative contexts. The course provides an introduction to theories of globalization and examines the gendered effects of globalization on social, economic and cultural life in various countries (with an emphasis on non-western contexts). The course will pay particular attention to the relationship between social identities and inequalities of gender, class, race, religion and will also examine the continued significance of nationalism. Topics will include social movements, the economic effects of globalization (on labor, women and work, economic development) and the cultural and social dimensions of globalization (gender and the media, the effects of urbanization).

Course Requirements:

Course requirements will include analytical papers, a final research paper, consistent and active seminar paper and group discussion activities.
