SOC 124 Global Sociology: Nation/Empire/Race/Gender (1)

Why do nation-states go to war? Can international institutions promote peace? And how do people organize across borders to address injustice? This course examines the politics and sociology of war, peace, and knowledge-making across borders and investigates how race, class, gender and colonial legacies structure the world. We will think about power, inequality and resistance from a “global perspective” and reflect on the ways that global events shape our everyday lives.
