FYS Section A28. Hedonism II to H2 Worker
The last quarter century is often characterized as a period of economic globalization. National economies are increasingly linked by merchandise trade, investment flows, and the exchange of ideas and people. In this seminar, we examine how such connections between the United States and English Speaking Caribbean countries affect these economies and their peoples. We use films and texts from anthropology, sociology, history, economics and beyond to explore themes ranging from all-inclusive resorts (like Hedonism II) to “barrel children,” transnational factory production, guest workers (including H2 workers), and informal commercial importers.
