Tenth Global Studies Conference National University of Singapore | Singapore | 8–9 June 2017
Call for Papers
We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Tenth Global Studies Conference, held 8–9 June 2017 at the National University of Singapore in Singapore.
Founded in 2008, the conference is held annually in different locations around the world, each selected for its particular place in the dynamics of globalization. Intellectually, the conference takes three steps: the first is a "this-worldly" step, mapping the details and extrapolating to big picture analyses in order to interpret what is at times challenging, dangerous, and excitingly positive about the "New Globalization." The second step is to set this New Globalization in the context of earlier globalizations—what are the continuities, and what is genuinely new? The third step is to re-examine and redefine the very concept of globalization—in theoretical, anthropological, and philosophical terms. The conference works between the most fastidiously empirical and profoundly generalizing modes of engagement with one of the central phenomena of our contemporary existence.
We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, colloquia, virtual posters, or virtual lightning talks. The conference features research addressing the annual themes and the 2017 Special Focus: "Global Mobilities."
For more information regarding the conference, use the links below to explore our conference website.
We welcome the submission of proposals to the conference at any time of the year before the final submission deadline. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission.
If you are unable to attend the conference in person, you may present in a Virtual Poster session or a Virtual Lightning Talk. Virtual Sessions enable participants to present work to a body of peers and to engage with colleagues from afar.
As virtual participants, presenters are scheduled in the formal program, have access to select conference content, can submit an article for peer review and possible publication, may upload an online presentation, and can enjoy Annual Membership to the community and subscriber access to The Global Studies Journal.
We are honored to have the National University of Singapore, Department of Political Science and Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences as our conference partner.
