Globalization is a process that creates, modifies, amplifies and severs economic, political and social links across the globe. Rooted in colonialism, fast-tracked by neoliberal capital's privatization and free trade discourses and spawning resistance ranging from individual acts to broad-based social movements, globalization disproportionately harms but also empowers BIPOC, Womxn, Trans and Queer Folk, Disabled People, Workers, and many others who have experienced its heavy hand. Globalization influences the construction of gender and sexual identities, and has created landscapes of extreme inequality, environmental destruction and conflict. In CGS 101, we will combine sampling theoretical concepts to describe these gendered, anti-Black, colonized and racialized landscapes with a focus on case studies that highlight the interplay between the devastation left in the wake of globalization and the resistance against it.

CGS 101 will meet Tuesdays/Thursdays 1100AM-1220PM PST in Warren Lecture Hall during Winter Quarter.

CGS 101 will be 'conducted' on stolen, colonized, occupied Kumeyaay Land. ¡La lucha sigue!
