Description

The course explores human society from an interdisciplinary social scientific perspective anchored in political economic analysis. The primary focus is on modern capitalism. A wide range of social analyses is explored with an emphasis on contemporary contributions. Historical and theoretical points are considered in close relation to current affairs and to potential feasible alternatives to prevailing policies and institutions. Students are encouraged to pursue their own interests and ideas as well as to develop their capacities for insightful social analysis. The course provides extensive opportunities for discussion. There are no prerequisites for the course.

Course Requirements:

Students will participate in online and classroom discussions, take two quizzes and a midterm, and write a final paper.
