Global Political Economy I: Theory and Approaches
CROSSLISTED COURSE: AP REI 3270
The course provides students with some key conceptual tools with which to understand the global political economic processes that shape our world today. We begin with a brief discussion of contemporary theoretical perspectives and then analyze the primary forces (e.g. capital and information) and processes (colonialism, global production, and migration) that confront us. The primary objective of the course is to provide a theoretical framework to analyze these global events, as well as to develop a grounded critique of available theoretical alternatives.
