Cursusdoelen
After completing the course Globalising Worlds the student is able:
  • To explain the fundamentals of globalisation from various theoretical perspectives also to understand its practical implications;
  • To apply knowledge of different positions of various actors and stakeholders in globalisation processes to own case studies;
  • To identify and critically comment on various dimensions of globalisation, explaining their relevance for the relationship between the Global North and South;
  • To develop and present, through group format, a multimedia product and its supporting script. 
     
Inhoud
The Globalising Worlds course is given to all students in the second year of the Bachelor's programme in GPM, and to students in the pre-Master of Human Geography and ESS.

This course focuses especially on global issues affecting the so-called Global South. This relates to issues such as climate change, trade, city planning, human mobility and transnational cooperation. In this course we seek to offer alternative approaches to interactions conceived as processes of globalisation by explicitly linking them to specific areas in the world, helping to thereby provide an integral analysis of place-space interconnectivities in globalisation processes. In this course we thereby also reveal how the spatial sciences have a key role to play in helping to literally and conceptually locate globalisation, to not only understand 'why' and 'how' but 'why there' it is grounded.

Key themes discussed in this course are:
  • On the move: the role of globalization in capital mobility and human migration
  • Consuming and wasteful societies in a globalizing world: Access to natural resources, connections of societies across the globe
  • A global urban world: ‘planetary urbanism’, planning of growing mega-cities, the duality of formal/informal urban economies 
Niveau

Voorkennis
This course expands on various courses from the first year of the Bachelor's programme GPE, notably those focusing on societal changes arising out of local impacts of globalisation. Thereby this course is also the core for the Globalization stream. This relates to particular forms of urban development (fast expanding cities, urban inequality,  networked cities) set out in the course Visies op de Stad (Envisioning the City). Themes such as mobility, discussed in the introductory course Inleiding GPM (Introduction to GPE), are also explored in greater depth, with specific attention given to situations in the Global South. 
Toetsinformatie
Individual: digital exam, at the end of block 1, semester 1. This is worth 50% of the total mark
Group work: A multimedia product and script, presented and submitted at the end of block 2. This is worth the other 50% of the total course mark.

Both need a sufficient mark to pass the course as a whole.

Partial results (exam or the group work result) remain valid beyond the duration of the year in which they were passed, unless important changes are made to the course's design and/or the particular exercise. Students with such partial results who join the course again a year later need to always get in touch with the coordinator to establish whether partial results still hold.
Bijzonderheden

Beoordeling
Naast een tentamen (50%) wordt ook het multimediaproduct + bijbehorend script in groepsverband voor 50% van het totale eindcijfer beoordeeld. Beiden mogen worden herkansd, in het laatste geval geldt dit dan wel voor de gehele MMP groep.

Opmerking
online tentamen zal na blok 1 plaatsvinden, in blok 2 zal dan de focus liggen op het multimedia product (groepsproduct)
