The Cosmopolitan Village?
0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 2
  • Tutorial/Seminar: 1

What is the place of culture in the process of globalization, which seems simultaneously to be integrating and fragmenting the world? Is there a global cosmopolitan culture emerging, despite the valorization of cultural differences? These are the type of questions that this course addresses. Students will discuss the dreams, visions and imaginings of a shared global culture, but also the hard cultural differences that refuse to go away.
