Introduction to Global Studies - SIMP17
A Range of Topics in Global Studies
The course commences with a set of workshops that will enable the students to situate themselves within global studies and gain insight into the study of the global versus the local and how globalization is located within this nexus. Students are also encouraged to think about the ways in which global issues and developments connect with national and regional forms of governance. Other topics include globalization as an economic process, inequalities within globalizing processes, gender and globalization, psychological expressions of globalization. Furthermore, students will be introduced to the connection between (in)security and globalization, including human security as well as regional integration versus globalization.
Multi-disciplinary Teaching Team
The teaching team includes Dr Annika Bergman Rosamond (Political Science, Programme Director, Global Studies), Dr Catia Gregoratti (Political Science), Dr Barbara Schulte (Sociology), Professor Helle Rydström (Gender) and doctoral candidate Amin Parsa (Faculty of Law). Together we offer broad spectrums on global studies and globalization and seek to promote critical engagement with theoretical, conceptual and empirical developments within these broad analytical fields.
Online Course Platform
This course uses Live@Lund as the online course platform. The course platform will be opened about four weeks before the course begins to all students who were accepted. Here you will be able to access literature, assignments, announcements, and schedule, as well as participate in discussions and communicate with teachers.
Excerpts from student evaluations
“[The most satisfactory aspects of the course were] learning new concepts and seeing globalization from different perspectives.”
“[The part of the course which has been professionally useful is] being introduced to the various perspectives (i.e. the psychological, political, sociological) one on subject (e.g. globalization).”
