The module aims to introduce students to the broad topic of globalisation. As a team-taught module, specific topics may change with occasional changes to the teaching team. At the time of writing, specific topics include: trade and the global economy (e.g. international trade, classical trade theory, comparative advantage, new trade theory, the new economic geography, and uneven development); firms and workers in the global economy (e.g. talent and jobs, global production chains, knowledge and the creative industries); and cultures of globalisation (e.g. self-identity, non-places, global cities, the nation/state).
