Call for Papers for Issue 3 of the JCGS: 'Globalisation at a Crossroads'
The financial crisis of 2008 has both undermined and reaffirmed our belief in the forces of globalisation. The limitless prosperity thought to be spread through global capitalism has crumbled into a near depression in the West. A sovereign debt crisis in Greece has raised the prospect of the collapse of the Eurozone and a retreat to national economic policy; whilst also
demonstrating the power of global actors such as credit rating agencies to determine the course of events. Moreover, the collapse of the Copenhagen summit on climate change, with the dissolution into traditional blocs of developed vs. developing world brings into question the meaning and validity of the idea of substantially 'global' politics.
Within the very broad remit of thinking about globalisation today, the Journal of Critical Globalisation Studies invites full length articles, polemics (pieces up to 5000 words) and book reviews for our third issue. Topics may range from highly theoretical works to scholarly commentaries on globally significant events. We particularly welcome pieces that explore the connections between International Relations and Globalisation Studies. The issue will be launched at the 2010 Global Studies Association conference, co-hosted by the JCGS, on the theme of 'Globalisation and International Relations'.
The deadline for submissions is July 15th, 2010.
