Fifth Annual Globalization Conference at the University Of Chicago, April 25th and 26th
The members of the Workshop on the Sociology and Cultures of
Globalization have organized the Fifth Annual Globalization Conference.
We, along with our faculty co-sponsors, Profs. Saskia Sassen and Terry
Clark, would like to invite the university community to our upcoming
events. This conference, now in its fifth year, is is an ongoing
activity with the Transnationalism Project aimed at fostering a network of
scholars who are grappling with the various challenges transnational
processes present to the study of globalization. The focus this year is
on developing papers by advanced graduate students in the Sociology and
Cultures of Globalization Workshop for inclusion in an edited volume on
transnational processes and globalization.
