Tell Us about Globalization

Tell Us about Globalization

The Lavenda & Schultz textbook Anthropology: What Does It Mean to be Human? ends with a chapter on “What Can Anthropology Tell Us about Globalization?” (479-509). For my 2016 Introduction to Anthropology 2016 course, I combined those reflections with the last part of Jason De León, “Maricela” & “We Will Wait Until You Get Here” (265-279) in The Land of Open Graves.

Globalization encounters can be told in many different ways. For an interesting re-telling of some of the first globalization encounters, check out the podcast Encounters Unforeseen: A Bicultural Retelling of 1492 with Andrew Rowen on This Anthro Life (December 2017).

For a related approach to answer the question of how anthropology can tell us about globalization, see the posts from 2017 on When did Globalization Begin? and Why Does Globalization Feel New?
