Tell Us about Globalization

The third edition of Lavenda and Schultz Anthropology: What Does It Mean to be Human? concluded with a chapter on “What Can Anthropology Tell Us about Globalization?” 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” in The Land of Open Graves.

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? and finally What will happen in the future?

For updated reflections, see this lecture from Cultural Anthropology 2023:

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together. This blog is a personal project of Jason Antrosio, author of Fast, Easy, and In Cash: Artisan Hardship and Hope in the Global Economy.
