Syllabus:

Globalisation is a fundamentally geographical concept as it influences the way we think about human interactions across time and space. But the nature, extent and impacts of globalisation continue to be widely debated. This course examines different ways of conceptualising globalisation and investigates the nature of local-global relations. Students will be introduced to the political, economic and cultural processes of globalisation and, drawing on local and international case studies, they will consider the social and environmental consequences of these processes for people living in different locations. In particular, the course investigates whether and how processes of globalisation operate to create, maintain and deepen inequality, poverty and injustice amongst individuals, groups, regions and nations. The course also explores population growth and migratory shifts and considers the role that these demographic changes have in broader processes of globalisation.
