Teaching and Learning Global Political Economy for Undergraduates
Unformatted Document Text:  the interrelationships between global political and economic conditions. In addition, they will be able to comprehend gendered, environmental nature, and informal aspects of global political economy. Instructional design and process After the first two years of teaching this course I had worked out the broad outlines of a model that has been designed around five modules. I begin with historical and theoretical understandings of Global Political Economy. The average GPE text introduces to three ‘competing perspectives’ – the liberal, the economic nationalist and the critical. I go further to explore gendered, environmental and various global South perspectives. The second module examines Structures of Global Political Economy that include trade, production, monetary, financial systems, governance, labor and concepts of economic development and environment. I use a standard Critical Global Political Economy text to facilitate learning in these two modules. In past three years I have been using Robert O’Brien and Marc Williams, 2007 Global Political Economy: Evolution and Dynamics. Once this foundational content knowledge has been introduced and discussed, and understood Module Three begins to examine all the major regions of the world. These include the Euro Zone, North America, Latin America, States in Transition, Asia/Pacific, Middle East and North Africa and Sub Sahara Africa. As problems in the global economy have been mirrored in the everyday lives of ordinary Americans, I have spent time helping students figure out the growing global Debt crisis and its connections with increasing US Debt especially household debt. Ann Pettifor and Janet Bush’s, Real World Economic Outlook has helped us to explore the legacy of globalization: debt and deflation especially in relation with the American economy.
