POLI 2431 Radical Political Economy: From Marx to Anti-Globalization (Fall: 3 )
This course examines the work of radical thinkers from Marx to contemporary critics of globalization. The course examines Marx's theory of history and his writings on capitalist economics and politics. It explores the evolution of radical thinking on issues such as the state; the role of class in contemporary societies, particularly in relation to issues of gender, ethnicity, and religion as bases for identity and power; and prospects for progressive social transformation. We conclude with a critical examination of theories imperialism and globalization, and what they imply for the future of societies at different stages of development.
