Thompson Hall 2022
Section Information for Spring 2013This course will challenge students to think critically about our contemporary situation wherein global economic processes increasingly turn goods into commodities and people into consumers. We will examine the twin processes of commodification and marketization that are at the heart of globalization, and we will relate these to the big social, cultural, and political questions of our day. We will make use of a variety of texts—documentary, visual art, fiction, architecture—to enrich our understanding of this significant and timely topic.
