Sociology | The Community

Community relationships and organization are two of the most
influential aspects of one’s social life. While Thomas Friedman
advocates that globalization has made the world “flat”, a recent
article in Foreign Policy states that 90% of all phone calls, Web
traffic, and investments are local. In this course, we will explore
this debate and look at how communities are forces of political,
economic, and social change in the era of globalization. We will
also look at community differences and problems to focus on the
balance between order and change.
