Tectonic Shifts & Current Geo-Politics   

This class will explore the political implications of the United States’ “proxy war” with Russia fought in Ukraine in order to assess the status of the current “geo-political world order.” In doing that the course will: 1) discuss the historic geo-political contours of the integrated inter-state world capitalist system, with a focus on the period from 1815 to 1945; 2) examine the configuration of the world order between 1945 and 1991; and, 3) place the Russian-Ukrainian Crisis within the context of shifting geo-political plate tectonics since 1991.
