ANTH 0370 - Globalization & Native People


Spring 3 Credit Hours
Globalization and Native Peoples focuses on the increasingly interconnected nature of human cultures around our planet. In this class, students will examine the socioeconomic, cultural, and political processes that work to both advance and to harm the unique lifeways of the thousands of indigenous people living as political and ethnic minorities within different nations. The course will address the complex and often negative effects of multinational corporations seeking to exploit natural resources within the traditional lands of native peoples, as well as the local ecological and health impact of various agencies. The course will also explore the role of modern media, including the Internet’s popular social network sites, in another aspect of globalization today. Finally, the opposing trends of a global monoculture vs. the active promotion or revitalization of native language, culture, beliefs, and values will be discussed. Prerequisite: ANTH 0101  (or above) or INTS 0201  or SOC 0110  or special permission from the instructor. Cross-listed as INTS 0370 .
