"Globalization" refers to a set of problems that, after 1990, have taken center stage in the political imaginary. In most cases, discourses of globalization address the economic and technological unification and homogenization of the world as well as the social, political and cultural consequences of an expanding world market, of the internationalization of production, and of the free circulation of capital and information. Simultaneously, emphasis is put on the ruptures and diversifications that occur on the regional and local levels. It is the objective of this international conference to engage in theoretical, historical and practical reflections on the discursive, social and political problems of representation in the wake of an emergent global capitalism. Conference languages are English and German.
