POLS 313 Politics of Money


Initially examining two prominent commodities, food and weapons, this course looks behind these commodities purchased with money in order to see the social, political, and economic structures that produce them. Course interrogates the ways in which the money we spend works within an political-economic system that appears to be natural yet is saturated with social and political power. Using films, books, and articles, the course covers contemporary, historical, and theoretical understandings and ideological critiques of the political economy of money.
