LATI 322 - Culture and Global Capitalism

Cross-Listed as INTL 322  and MCST 322 
From the colonial sugar plantations of the Caribbean and new continental tastes for sweets, to Ford’s mass production lines and Fordist mass consumption, to Sony’s multinationally produced video technology and Sonyism’s transnational networks of information societies, to Google and YouTube today, the worlds of capitalism and culture have been closely intertwined. This class will study forms of global economic exchange, and their associated systems of international relations, cultural texts, and popular resistances.  (4 Credits)
