Work, Culture, and Globalization

The industrial landscape seems to be changing dramatically. The end of the Cold War, intensified international economic competition, and new technologies are undermining historic patterns of working and doing business. This course examines these developments in two ways. First, it focuses on several countries' experiences in adapting to these changes and then investigates, by intensive research on actual workplaces in the local community, how these changes are affecting the lives of working men and women.
