Conference Focus

The 2014 Global Studies Conference will address a range of critically important ideas relating to globalization in the world today. 

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types) addressing global studies through one of the following themes:

Economy and Trade Politics, Power and Institutions
Society and Culture Resources and Environment

Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus.

We also offer participation options for those individuals who cannot attend the conference. Authors who wish to submit an article for potential publication in the Global Studies Journal may submit a Proposal for Article Submission, while all members of the knowledge community with an accepted proposal may submit an online presentation to the knowledge community YouTube channel.


Shanghai and Global Studies

The Center for Global Studies at Shanghai University is a member of Global Studies Consortium, an ever-growing group of graduate programs in global studies with more than 40 universities over the world seeking to collaborate in teaching and research. The 2014 Global Studies Conference is excited to partner with the University of Shanghai and its Center for Global Studies in developing an exciting and intellectually stimulating conference program.

The plenary program will address how China experiences and analyzes globalization, the kind of globalization that social forces in China seek and their forward-looking globalization projects and agendas, as well as perspectives on China's path of development. In the coming months we will announce plenary speakers from China and the region, as well as international speakers.
