ELP 680 - Globalization, Cosmopolitanism, Democracy and Social Justice in Education

Credits 3
Seminar / 3 hours per week
Examination of globalization as a web of multifarious forms underpinning global, local and regional institutions and regimes allowing space for transnational politics and policies. Students will be confronted with state of the art analyses involving several forms of globalization and examine how democracies have been a fundamental ideological, political, economic and cultural currency of social legitimization. The course will emphasize the relations and tensions between neo-liberal forms of globalization and globalization from below strategies and the impact of such tensions in democracy and social justice. We will explore issues such as social justice, economic justice, cultural justice and how these impact education policy and practice.
