THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF GLOBALIZATION
French 4100.02 / Comp Lit 7140
Did the world change in 1969 with the installation of
the first node of ARPANET, the forerunner of the Internet? Or was it Nixon's
decision in 1971 to take the US off the gold standard? The first MTV broadcast
in 1981? Whatever your favorite event, there's a pervasive sense that the
world is different now than "before"; the cultural marker of our changed
world is "postmodernism," while the political marker is "globalization"
and the scientific marker is "complexity." Our year-long course will develop
genealogies of postmodernity in the relations among culture, political
economy and science.
