LSO440 - Globalization in the 20th Century and Beyond


ENG106 or one lower-level liberal studies (LSO) or Critical Thinking course.

This course focuses on the examination of contemporary patterns of globalization in all its forms. The 20th century has experienced great social upheaval and transformation. We fought two world wars, saw the rise and fall of the Soviet communist regime, and witnessed the formal dismantling of European empires. We experienced dramatic technological change and the ascendancy of corporate capitalism as the primary global economic model. We have also witnessed unprecedented economic disparities and ecological hazards from air, water and soil pollution to global climate change. The 21st century promises to see these trends accelerate and intensify.
