DISCUSSION BOARD ASSIGNMENT #1  (TOTAL: 500 words minimum)

In 250 words, please respond to both of the following questions.

1) Please explain in your own words what Ferguson means by the following statement: “But as the contemporary African material shows so vividly, the ‘global’ does not ‘flow,’ thereby connecting and watering contiguous spaces; it hops instead, efficiently connecting the enclaved points in the network while excluding (with equal efficiency) the spaces that lie between the points.” Why is this relevant to the social life of people in Africa?

2) In your opinion, do you think that Sassen would attribute some of Covid’s disproportionate impact on people of color to globalization? Explain why or why not. Please see the data here for reference: https://data.newamericaneconomy.org/en/immigrant-workers-at-risk-coronavirus/ (Links to an external site.)

In an additional 250 words, please respond to both of the following.

1) Why does Farish Noor compare historical records that might appear contradictory in the way that they acknowledge, or erase, colonial violence in Southeast Asia?

2) Mann mentions that a “domestic racism” and an “international racism” are connected. What does this mean? In her eyes, are these also connected to domestic and overseas expansion?
