Skrócony opis:

This seminar explores selected established and emerging global themes from a sociological perspective. It starts by introducing key conceptual and analytical issues in the study of globalization and discussing the concept of globalization. The seminar then considers main features and implications of economic, cultural and political globalization. Afterwards, the course examines a number of substantive sociological topics that have a global character, such as: global culture and belonging, global inequalities and development, consumption, migration, global social movements. The last section of the seminar explores resistance to globalisation and anti-globalization movements as well as attempting to answer the question if it is justified to talk of “a global society” and how sociologists might approach it.
