HIST-2414A History and Global Society

One of the most characteristic features of the world during the 90s was the raise of awareness about the importance of global in a wide range of social environments. In fact, in the world we live, there is a number of economic, social, political, cultural, ideological, and symbolic interpenetrations that have permitted the overcoming of the former real or imaginary borders, substituted by new networks, as well as new forms of compenetration of global with local. From these changes, the world, as it was pointed out by Octavio Lanni, is not an astronomic figure anymore, but a historical category. This course intends, from an interdisciplinary perspective, to show how the new global networks of interpenetration are built, and to show as well the interstices built to relocate local within global.
