Globalization is generally understood to describe a process of interaction and integration among people, companies, and governments of different nations. However, the causes and consequences of globalization are hotly debated. Researchers argue for both ideational as well as material causes for globalization. Whatever the case, this controversial phenomenon has widespread effects on cultural and political systems, the environment, economies and prosperity, and the well-being of people around the world. The Graduate Research Conference invites papers that examine both the normative and material dynamics of these cultural, political, social, economical and environmental trends and how they are changing the world.
The Graduate Society for International Studies and the Center for Regional and Global Studies, in collaboration with the Graduate Program in International Studies, are pleased to announce the 9th annual Graduate Research Conference to be held at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. This conference title is Ideas, iPads, Isolation and Integration? Material and Normative Dynamics of Globalization. An inclusive event, we welcome abstracts from all programs including economics, communications, humanities, history, public administration, business studies, criminology, women's studies, modeling and simulation, foreign languages and intercultural studies.
Areas of Concentration:
Migration and Immigration
Nationalism and Post-Nationalism
Trends of Labor
Technology and Information Security
Please send a 250-300 word abstract (double-spaced and clearly titled) to the Conference Coordinator. Include a cover sheet with the following information: name, mailing address, telephone numbers and e-mail address, academic affiliation, and paper title.
Presentations will be organized into three to four person panels. Each of the presenters will speak for 10 minutes, and then respond to feedback from faculty and peers.
