[daily_crcs] A SERIES LECTURE ON “INTERROGATING GLOBALIZATION” (Prof. Dr. John Raines) To: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Date: Monday, February 8, 2010, 9:52 AM

intention of this course is to introduce us to a rapidly expanding critical
discourse concerning the global political economy that only a few years ago
seemed not only inevitable but unquestionable.
will ask: what is “globalization”?Why
is there a growing inequality within all nations and between the nations of
the global North and the global South?Why are so many people in the global South facing daily hunger and
even starvation?Is the kind of
development policy that now steers the global economy environmentally
sustainable?If not, what are the
alternatives?What are we doing to
Nature and what is Nature doing to us?As a species, we are utterly dependent upon the material world, yet we
treat it as “stuff” to buy and use and throw away.Why do we do that?What are the underlying
philosophical/religious views about human wants and human satisfactions that
lie below the surface of arguments about development?What does it mean, what should it mean for
a nation to be “developed” or “developing”?Western economists like to think of themselves as doing a value-free
science; but is it also a kind of theology, a belief system?And if so, is it a good or a bad
theology?How are world religions
complicit with power and privilege?Can they also become agents of resistance and change?What does it mean to think ahead of the storm, looking for new ways of humans
living together peacefully on a planet that is finite and limited?
these are huge questions and we will simply scratch the surface of what is
perhaps the most important discussion we humans can have together, a
discussion that must lead to action, actions driven by a consensus on what
needs to be done and motivated by moral and religious conviction.
Besides the texts, there will be
several video documentaries.
