INTS 255 Globalization and the Challenges of Development in Ghana


This course will include site visits to locations within Accra that highlight fashion, food, and gender and entrepreneurship. We will begin with a brief history of markets in Ghana as we begin to define "What is Globalization?" From various interpretations and meanings of globalisation, we will investigate globalization’s influence on society including cultural implications. We will discuss topics such as transnationalism, agricultural developments, real estate, manufacturing, and even alternatives to globalization. How does globalization interface with social justice movements and women's rights? What part does Ghana play in international relations for the local region and continent of Africa? We will answer these and other questions as we explore our global Ghana.
