HISTORY 454S

"Globalization" a shorthand for describing the period of extraordinary change that we are living through, our lives & our world defined by the internet & rapid mass communication, great wealth & remarkable levels of consumption and yet, also unprecedented polarization between the have & have-not parts of society and of the world, the emergence of E-Waste and toxic environments as by-products of the present. Case studies of China, India and S. Korea explore the question of Asian development and the linkages with the Democratic Republic of Congo for minerals such as coltan for microprocessor chip manufacturing, to examine the circuits of globalization.
