Fifth Annual Conference on Global Studies- Moscow, Russia

Jump to Comments

The 2012 conference will be held at Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia, 20-22 June 2012. The 2012 Global Studies Conference will address a range of critically important ideas relating to globalization in the world today, as well as focusing on a special theme – Eurasia and Globalization: Complexity and Global Studies. Plenary speakers will include leading thinkers and practitioners, as well as paper, workshop and colloquium presentations.

This year’s Plenary Sessions will feature world-famous scholars including: Ulrich Beck (Munich University and London School of Economics), Roland Robertson (University of Aberdeen), and John Urry (Lancaster University).

Global Studies invites prospective participants to submit a presentation proposal for one of the following parallel session options: a 30-minute paper; a 60-minute workshop; a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session; or a virtual session. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for focused discussion of issues and conference themes.

This is a conference for any person with an interest in, and concern for, the question of globalization – including researchers, teachers and graduate students. All are encouraged to register and attend this significant and timely conference. Accommodation options are also available.

Participants may choose to submit written papers before or after the conference for possible publication in the peer reviewed Global Studies Journal. Virtual participants also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the Journal. All registered conference participants receive a complimentary online subscription to the journal when registration is finalized. This subscription is valid until one year after the conference end-date.
