Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The aim of this module is to permit students to explore the role of culture in contemporary economic processes. The central theme is the impact of globalization on understandings of state-market-society relations, with a particular focus on the concept of ‘culture’ as a determining factor in the global political economy. Empirically, the module moves beyond IPE's traditional concern with mainly Western and mainly advanced (OECD) countries and engages with processes of political, economic and social change on a global level.

Principal learning outcomes

To understand how taking culture seriously challenges key assumptions in IPE theorising.
