授業の概要 Course Overview


This course will consider how globalisation relates to business and society in a global context. It will look at a variety of global case studies, facilitating students to develop a greater understanding of how New Asia and the rest of the world interacts.
With this course, students will deepen their understanding of the relationship between globalisation and current international relations. They will look at the historic development of globalisation and bring it up to date with how globalisation has evolved throughout the years and how it will continue to change in the future. From the invention of globalisation they will examine how different countries have benefited and suffered and look at the current national rhetoric of de-globalisation.
By studying this course, students will be able to critique academic papers written on the subject of globalisation and apply geographical theory to what they have read.
Students will develop their ability to synthesize ideas from theoretical readings, case studies, class discussions and their own experiences into effective oral and written arguments.
