Global Economies
Fall 2024
Taught By: Gabriel Vignoli
Section: A

CRN: 2823

Credits: 3

This class explores the circulation of money, goods, bodies, and ideas that make up the global economy as it is experienced and lived today. This core course introduces students to key global areas where economic dynamics intersects with politics, society, and culture. It explores essential and contested concepts such as value, money, labor, trade, and debt, “licit” and “illicit” economies, and moral economy. We will examine changing trends in the global political economy as well as emerging areas such as the sharing economy (e.g. AirBnB) or technologies such as automated trading. Readings will be drawn from classic texts, contemporary commentary, and case studies from a variety of disciplines that seek to understand the “economic” and relate its logics and workings to our contemporary realities of unparalleled inequality, interconnectivity, and interdependence. *A Global Studies Core Course.* Please contact the GLUE Advisor should you need additional information or have registration difficulties.
