2021 Call for Proposals

When you join the Global Studies Research Network you become part of an international network of scholars, researchers, and practitioners. Membership makes our independent organization possible. Membership also comes with many benefits, including subscriber access to all electronic publications, discounts to conference registrations, and a range of other opportunities to stay connected and be supported by the Network. If you are not already a member, we encourage you to find out more. Join today to connect with a movement of likeminded researchers, get access to a large body of knowledge, and professional development opportunities, and let our Research Network become the advocate of what you do.

The Fourteenth Global Studies Conference features research addressing the following annual themes. Each year we also focus on a Special Focus that presents a timely challenge.

  • Theme 1: Networks of Economy and Trade
  • Theme 2: The Power of Institutions
  • Theme 3: Vectors of Society and Culture
