Write an essay that explores what the sociological study of globalization can teach us about war and social conflict (ethnic conflict, religious conflict, conflicts between majorities and minorities) in the world today. How can we best understand their “root causes”? How do they relate to the characteristic power struggles of the global culture of capitalism? Do the conflicts you discuss involve class conflict in anyway? Do they involve gender conflicts in anyway? Why, or why not? Defend the position you take.
1. Does the essay answer the question(s) posed clearly, explicitly and thoroughly? How coherent and persuasive is the essay’s argument?
2. How clearly, accurately, and appropriately are concepts and ideas presented in the essay answer? How clearly, accurately and appropriately are the relationships between concepts presented in the essay answer?
3. How appropriate are the examples used to explain ideas and concepts or to advance the essay’s argument? Are the examples sufficient and well chosen? Does the presentation of the example make clear how the example serves as example in an explanation or an argument
