Introducing Globalization: Ties, Tensions, and Uneven Integration
Tuesday, May 21, 2013 - 4:00pm
Communications 202

Designed specifically for introductory globalization courses, Introducing Globalization helps students to develop informed opinions about globalization, inviting them to become participants rather than just passive learners. Interdisciplinary, accessible, and comprehensive, this guide identifies and explores the major economic, political and social ties that comprise contemporary global interdependency. At the same time, it is designed to help students understand the way in which the word “Globalization” – and the struggles over its meaning – lies at the heart of debates between advocates of a “free market” and what critics describe as the damage and devastation of “market fundamentalism” and “neoliberalism.”

Silencing Race: Disentangling Blackness, Colonialism, and National Identities in Puerto Rico
Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 4:00pm
Communications 202

In their quest for greater political participation within shifting imperial fields—from Spanish (1850s–1898) to US rule (1898-present)—Puerto Ricans struggled to shape and contain conversations about race. In so doing, they crafted, negotiated, and imposed on others multiple forms of silences while reproducing the idea of a unified, racially mixed, harmonious nation. Hence, both upper and working classes participated, although with different agendas, in the construction of a wide array of silences that together have prevented serious debate about racialized domination. This book explores the ongoing, constant racialization of Puerto Rican workers to explore the 'class-making' of race.
