Transnational Actors and Networks - INGS2601

Year - 2020

This unit will consider the interactions of four groups of 'transnational actors' in the transnational public sphere: civil society, political, market and media, with a core focus on civil society interventions in the global political conversation. We will examine the communicative and cultural tools used to frame issues in particular ways, and look at tensions between the global, the regional, and national and the local within these conversations. The unit is taught by the School of Languages and Cultures.
