About

This team-taught honors course addresses those contemporary moral and political issues that arise from the division between the Global North and South—“the problem of the color-line” that W. E. B. Dubois identified at the beginning of the twentieth century and which, on a scale that Dubois could not have foreseen, is the problem of the twenty-first. As a team-taught honors course in Philosophy and Political Science, Globalization and International Development is interdisciplinary in scope, including discussion of work by both social scientists and philosophers. It combines material drawn from courses that would otherwise be taught under the distinct disciplinary rubrics of political economy or philosophy with the goal of helping students to develop an integrated understanding of the political, economic, and ethical implications of globalization.
