CORE 459 - Popular Culture and Globalization


Prerequisites: Core seminar, required for graduation CORE 101  through CORE 105  and at least sixth semester standing
This Core Interdisciplinary Senior Seminar will explore how popular culture and globalization have had, and continue to have, an impact on our lives (on both a local and a global scale). The nature of popular culture itself, as a particular kind of culture, will be examined and various examples of popular culture will be considered. The nature of globalization, as both a historical and contemporary phenomenon, will also be addressed as a topic in and of itself. Through examining these two significant forces separately and in relationship to each other we will gain a greater understanding of how these two phenomena influence our lives and the world in which we live. This understanding will allow us to more fully answer the central core questions: Who am I? What do I know? Based on What I know, what should I do?
