教科書・参考文献
This course includes weekly readings of approximately 15-20 pages of English texts. Students are encouraged (but not required) to read the weekly readings each week, and required to carefully read the readings for the two weeks for which they serve as the assigned discussant.
All texts used in the course are available on Amazon in both Kindle and print form and students are encouraged to obtain their own copies of course materials. However, selections of the assigned readings will be made available over Moodle.

While students are encouraged to read course texts in English, there are Japanese translations available for several of the texts we will use. Given the demands of students’ other coursework and the difficulty posed by English language texts, students will not be expected to read more than they are capable of, and the volume of readings assigned each week will be negotiated between students and the professor.

主題と目標
This course builds on the themes studied in Globalization and Labor I, providing students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of the ways in which globalization has changed and challenged the conditions under which people around the world engage in labor, whether paid labor in the formal economy or unpaid domestic labor in the home. In particular, we will focus on the consequences of globalization, neoliberalism, the rise of artificial intelligence for workers, both in the Global North and Global South and in regard to both paid work and unpaid domestic work. As with Globalization and Labor I, this course will pay careful attention to the way class, gendered, racial and (neo)colonial power dynamics are inflected in the struggle over working conditions.

However, unlike with Globalization and Labor I, which offers a lecture-based format with relatively few required readings, this course is meant to provide a deeper engagement with issues relating to globalization and labor through a careful reading of key texts and active class discussions. As a result, this course uses a combined lecture and seminar format that includes weekly assigned readings. In addition to providing opportunities for a more detailed engagement with key issues and debates in relation to the study of globalization and labor, this course is intended to provide students with opportunities to develop critical thinking skills and to discuss ideas and opinions with the professor and their peers in English.
