Write an essay (standard font, three pages, double spaced, 1” margins all around, MLA format) where you connect your own life with the sociological theories/ideas discussed in class and in your reading related to globalization. How is your life affected by globalization? Some individuals in the world, especially those who live in the developed world (such as the U.S. and other wealthy nations) benefit from globalization, but many individuals in the developing world experience fewer benefits related to globalization (think of the clothing industry workers in the documentary The True Cost; or how American cultural ideas are spread and received in the rest of the world). How are we as consumers linked to the global inequality produced by globalization and what can we do to alleviate it? Your textbook and the supplemental readings on Blackboard are excellent sources to cite. You are welcome to use outside academic sources to strengthen your essay, but it's not necessary. Please refer to the essay rubric provided on Blackboard.
