This course provides an introduction to the broad scope of the interdisciplinary field of global studies. Students explore the unequal spatial distribution of humans, resources, wealth, and other phenomena across the globe and examine the root causes and local effects of these geographic patterns. By examining the many ways in which our world is portrayed - in text, on film, and especially with maps - students analyze the economic, cultural and political impacts of globalization on human-environment interactions.
