(Re)thinking Global Connectedness: Critical Perspectives on Globalization
26-28 January 2014
HOSTED BY: TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY AT QATAR
Location: Doha, Qatar
The Liberal Arts Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for its Second Annual Liberal Arts International Conference. This second annual conference will explore the impacts of globalization from a variety of disciplinary lenses.
How has globalization transformed us individually and collectively? How is globalization shaping notions of ethics? Is globalization merely a shrinking of the world or is it transforming human experience? What challenges does globalization pose to understandings of the self and the other? How do we sustain a globalized world in terms of food, energy, and education? Are we already living in a post-globalized world?
We welcome submissions from across the spectrum of academic fields, including politics, history, linguistics, technology, language studies, sociology, anthropology, geography, economics, philosophy, ethics, law, religion, and cultural studies. We especially encourage contributions from PhD students and scholars working in non-western and/or underrepresented regions.
Possible Conference Panels and Discussions:
Connections: Globalization and Technology
(Re)Thinking Ethics in a Globalized World
Linguistic Perspectives on Globalization
Education in a Globalized World
Historical Perspectives on Globalization
Globalization: Comparative East-West Perspectives
Global Movements: Environment, Peace, Violence
Legal Concerns of a Bordered/Borderless World
Submission of individual papers and complete panel proposals on these or other related themes are welcome. The conference can provide substantial travel bursaries for international participants who need funding. Select papers will be considered for publication in a peer-reviewed volume or a special issue of an international journal.
In order to be considered, please submit a panel proposal or individual paper proposal to include author(s) names, institution affiliation, email address, and an abstract of 250 words with 5 keywords by September 15, 2013 to LAIC2014@qatar.tamu.edu
