The Globalization Community
What does it mean to live in an increasingly global society? How do we participate in experiences outside of our national borders and comfort zones? Does the possibility of enriching life through increasing integration outweigh the potential new problems created? Are our cultural commonalities stronger than our cultural differences? The culture of any particular place is under the profound influence of past and present cultures around the world. How does the rise of technology shape our economic, political, social, and cultural identities? Will increased globalization cause a greater depletion of our natural resources? Can globalization and sustainable development coexist? Together students and faculty will explore the interconnectedness of our ever-shrinking world in the Globalization community.
