課程描述

課程介紹圍繞“新”全球經濟體的主要討論,以及對於實踐和政策的意義。來自學術界和商業領域的專家與我們分享他們在全球化不同領域的發現以及親身經歷。

 

教學大綱

 

描述

這門課程專為有在國外工作或研究經歷的學生設計,從實務和學術的角度認識全球經濟體以及這對不同經濟部門和職業的影響。在自身經歷的基礎上,學生通過研討會瞭解自己的親身經歷在更廣泛的意義和各方面的比較價值。

 

閱讀材料和嘉賓演講的安排會考慮到學生的背景和研究方向。學生需從他們自己的親身體驗,或者從與他們自己選擇的行業、職業、學術領域或國家有關的內容中總結案例進行學習。我們十分注重參與度和比較研究的方法。

全球化角度
各種職位如何分佈、由誰完成都取決於影響國際勞動力分工的科技因素。根據這觀點,工作或生產的各細分領域都有許多競爭者。

 

The Globalization Perspective

Which jobs are going where, and to whom, depends on the technological factors that affect the international division/distribution of labor. According to this perspective there are many contenders for different segments of work/production.

作業

 

論文1

論文題目

論文應有7頁,在第6節課後三天內上交。如果有任何問題請與我聯繫。無論選擇什麼題目,都應總結闡述的立場,並通過引用相關文獻、例子和案例來證明論點。不需要額外研究調查,但希望論文與規定材料之間的聯繫。

 

一些分析家認為全球化會終結長期存在的各國經濟、政治和文化差異。另一些人不同意這觀點。你認為哪一方正確?原因是什麼?又或是你有自己的見解?當論證自己的立場時,請你也分析一下其它可能的觀點。

 

新全球經濟有支持者,也有反對者。為什麼有如此大的爭議?所帶來的最重要的益處和危害是什麼?請借鑒我們已學習的作者觀點並通過具體例子論證。

 

電影《美酒家族》體現了葡萄酒產業從主要是本地作坊生產到全球化生產的轉變。什麼促使這樣的轉變?意味什麼?葡萄酒業這一變化是否在其它產業也有相似體現?當探討這部電影的內涵及其引出的議題時,你需要考慮其它產業的情況,並參考課堂上學習的材料。

 

論文2

這篇論文學生需要分析本身的海外經歷,或是任何在課堂閱讀和討論中感興趣與全球化相關的問題。學生的論題選擇範圍很廣,但是在11月底前學生應就自己的選擇徵得老師首肯。論文應包括實證研究和介紹各家觀點的分析性章節。

 

可選擇的論題包括各地區性和國家的案例,例如“全球化和整合:中國背景的觀點”以及“贊比亞的經濟和全球化”,或是對於國際合併和國際化部門的研究,如“戴姆勒-克萊斯勒:借東風”以及“航空業的全球化”,以此來分析國際化的正負面影響及支持它的體制發展相關的問題,例如“非洲:腐敗的詛咒”、“通過互聯網共享的知識及其對全球化的作用”和“對《北美自由貿易協議》的分析”。

 

為了達到HASS CI(人文、藝術與社會科學溝通密集課程)要求,論文需最少有15頁,同時學生在提交定稿以接受評分前需要上交初稿聽取教師意見。在課程最後學生還需在班級就自己的研究調查做簡報。

Assignments

Paper Assignment 1

Paper Topics

Papers should be seven pages long. They are due 3 days after lecture 6. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions. Whatever topic you choose, make sure you summarize the positions you are discussing, and support your arguments with reference to the relevant literature, examples and cases. No additional research is needed, but I do expect answers to show familiarity with the assigned materials.

Some analysts believe globalization will put an end to longstanding national economic, political and cultural differences. Others disagree. Which side, if any, do you think is right, and why? While arguing your position, make sure to present the alternative viewpoint.

The new global economy has its supporters, but also its detractors. Why is it so controversial? What are its most important benefits and pitfalls? Discuss with reference to some of the authors we have read and support your arguments with concrete examples.

"Mondovino" portrays the transformation of the wine industry from a primarily local and artisanal production into a global one. What drives this transformation, and what are its implications? How representative is the wine industry of what's happening in other sectors? While discussing the insights (if any) offered by the movie and the issues it raises, make sure you relate your positions to other industries, and other materials we read for the class.



Paper Assignment 2

In this paper students should analyze their experiences abroad, or any other topic/issue related to globalization in which they are interested, in light of class readings and discussions. Students can choose from a wide array of topics, but need to have their choice approved by the instructor by the end of November. Papers should include an empirical section, and a more analytical one that introduces different approaches to the issues being discussed.

Topics have ranged from regional and country-specific cases, like “Globalization and Convergence: Perspectives from the Chinese Context” and "Economy and Globalization in Zambia;” and studies of global mergers and sectors, like “DaimlerChrysler: Taken for a Ride,” and “Globalization of the Aircraft Industry;” to analyses of some of the issues and developments that are positively or negatively associated with globalization and of the institutional developments that supports it, like “Africa: The Curse of Corruption,” “Knowledge sharing through the internet & its effect on globalization,” and “Analysis of the North American Free Trade Agreement.”

To satisfy the HASS CI requirement, papers need to be at least 15 pages and students must submit a first draft of the paper for comments by the instructor before submitting their revised final version for grades. Students are also expected to present their research to the class at the end of the course.
