CRES 190S From Slavery to Precarity: Race, Logistics and Globalization

Over the past half-century, there has been a profound transformation in the way that goods are produced and moved about the world resulting in what has been referred to as the "logistics revolution". Course examines the ways in which this "revolution" in mass circulation of goods necessitates a radical thinking of race and racial politics in the context of contemporary capitalist globalization.
