Looking Forward, Looking Back: Transnational Perspectives on Globalization
1-3 February 2015
HOSTED BY: TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY AT QATAR
The Liberal Arts Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for its Third Annual Liberal Arts International Conference. Following the success of the past two years, this third 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.
Globalization and Technologies Ethics in a Globalized World Language and Globalization Transnational Education Historical Perspectives on Globalization Cross-Cultural Encounters with Globalization Contrasting Global North/Global South Comparing East/West Perspectives Globalization and the Environment Citizenship and Indigeneity Globalization and Gender/Race/Ethnicity Heritage in a Globalized World Communication and Globalization Food Security and Globalization
Submission of individual papers and panel proposals on these or other related themes are welcome. The conference can provide travel funds 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 by SEPTEMBER 30 through our online system at liberalarts.qatar.tamu.edu
