Honors 11: Globalization, cont.

Today, we refreshed our memory as to what the bin Laden photo and the Goldin TEDtalk implied about what globalization entails. We then watched and discussed this TEDtalk by Leslie Chang about the voices of Chinese workers and then Auret van Heerden’s piece on “Making Global Labor Fair.” Next, we briefly listened to Noam Chomsky, libertarian socialist political philosopher and linguist, on his take on globalization. Here’s another one of Chomsky’s discussions on the topic of gloablization.

We then went up to the LMC to get an indy reading book to serve as your primary source for your research paper. Try to read 15-20 pages a night.

This Benjamin Barber reading titled Jihad vs. McWorld from 1992 must be read/annotated as needed by Thursday. There will be an outline for the reading assigned tomorrow. Here’s an in-depth sample.
