Call for Abstracts
The Future of Globalization
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.
Theme: "The Future of Globalization"
Globalization is facing a pivotal moment in history. Since the economic crisis of 2008 it has faced serious turbulence, challenged for its vast economic and social problems, as well as its environmental destruction. New political movements have appeared to displace or upset long-ruling traditional parties in the West. And women, constituting a large sector of the new labor force for global manufacturing, continue to struggle for an equal place at home and in society. Traditional Western globalists have offered no strategy except to continue their failing model of development. But new roads have emerged that propose radically different possibilities. "The Future of Globalization" will analyze and debate various models of globalization and its alternatives.
