Call for Abstracts

The Future of Globalization Conference
Beijing, September 2019 (Friday to Sunday; the exact dates will be specified according to the time possibilities of CASS)

Organized by The Network for Critical Studies of Global Capitalism, in cooperation with the Institute of Philosophy at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing

Abstract Deadline: August 1st, 2018 (one year in advance)

You can write a provisionary abstract, and reformulate it later. Even if you are not sure that you can attend the conference, it is better to send an abstract because all abstracts have to be formally approved in Beijing, and it would be too late to do it next year.

Abstract should be about 200 words, including your names, your institution, email address, and an abstract itself.
