SOCY 5575 Global and Transnational Sociology (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Global and transnational sociology is the study of social structures and processes that transcend the national level. In this class, we explore such transnational phenomena as immigration, international organizations, social movements, war and conflict, and global production systems. We also review and apply a variety of theoretical approaches to transnational phenomena. This course is designed to provide a broad overview of this important sociological subfield, and is suitable for graduate students planning area exams in global and transnational sociology, as well as advanced undergraduate students able to keep up with graduate-level work.
