SOC 322 - Resistance to Corporate Globalization (4)

This course examines diverse forms of resistance to corporate globalization from a sociological perspective. Theoretical perspectives on resistance to corporate and neo-liberal globalization will be addressed in the light of case-studies on transnational movements, world social forums, revolutions, protests and other types of action carried out both in the South and global North. This will include collective struggles for alternative forms of globalization as well as individual acts of resistance to corporate globalization and its impact on inequalities and injustices based on social class, caste, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, and/or political views. Offered intermittently.
