Globalization describes the accelerating movement of people, goods and services, money, technology and ideas around the world and the growing integration of the world’s economy. In this interdisciplinary course, we analyze the changing impact of globalization on the health of populations in low, middle and high income nations and examine the intersections of its effects on health and social justice. Students complete a comparative case study analyzing the impact of specific global processes on a health problem of interest in two different settings. the course is open to doctoral students in the health or social sciences. Readings, presentations, case studies, and guest speakers will cover a broad range of topics with viewpoints from various disciplines. Examples of subject matter are: the global migration of healthcare personnel (brain drain); the impact of trade agreements on health; the environment and health in the age of globalization; and the impact of transnational social movements on the health consequences of globalization.
Students who complete this course will be eligible to apply for the second round of Globalization, Health and Social Justice Fellowships in Summer 2013. These fellowships support doctoral student to begin dissertation research on topics related to globalization, health and social justice. Last summer fellowships supported six GC doctoral students to travel to China, Haiti, India, and South Africa to begin research projects. Applications for Summer 2013 Fellowships will be due in February.
