Today: As the United States enters another election season, the merits and drawbacks of globalization are again being debated by the presidential candidates. With the passing of the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s America First doctrine, protectionist policies have become more prevalent, challenging globalization. What is globalization and how will it be affected by protectionist trade policies? How will the United States and the world be affected by such policies? Is globalization really at an end, or in need of a refresh?

This class series is following the Library's limited-capacity procedure, in line with the CDC's social distancing guidelines. To accommodate this, we will only have 12 seats available and already placed in the room; there will be no additions. Each person attending must wear a mask throughout the entire class. Every individual must enroll by signing up with Joan Flewelling (see contact info); every sign-up guarantees 1 seat per person, so if you wish to have friends or a significant-other join you, please sign him/her up individually under their name. Approx. 30 minutes before the event, a Library Staff member will greet you at the door and check your name off the sign-up sheet. There will be no exceptions.
