This course provides an introduction to global studies, a field that examines the interconnectedness of societies at the local, regional, national and international levels through the study of culture. We will investigate the following primary questions: What is a national identity? What is globalization? What are the cultural processes by which these identities shift or mutate across time and space? How is national life (politics, economics, religion, etc.) represented to people both inside and outside the nation, whether in political rhetoric or through cultural production (film, novels, visual arts, theater, graphic novels, etc)? What is the function of language in the establishment of identity and power?
