This course examines the place of corporations in defining the contemporary world, focusing on their roles both in global political-economic and social systems and in people’s personal lives. It considers how studying business corporations can help to better understand capitalism, globalization, work, consumerism, law, inequality, and cultural change. The course delves into case studies that follow transnational corporations from the United States, to Papua New Guinea, and back again. In addition, the course includes a research component in which students will conduct original fieldwork.
