Framing the Global, an initiative of the Indiana University Center for the Study of Global Change and Indiana University Press, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will host its second international conference in September 2018. Through the research of our fifteen fellows and our ongoing book series, Framing the Global continues to carve out a vital intellectual space for critical and grounded global studies.
The Framing the Global conference will explore new analytical frameworks for global studies as well as innovative pedagogy for the field.
We are excited to announce our keynote speaker, Peggy Levitt, Professor of Sociology at Wellesley College and co-director of the Transnational Studies Initiative at Harvard University. Levitt’s ability to transcend disciplinary boundaries, integrate cultural specificity with global political systems, and consider subject matter through multiple scales and forms of representation well reflect the vision of Framing the Global. Several of our fellows and other scholars will also present.
Call For Papers
Despite increasing popular and scholarly attention to global issues, no clear consensus has emerged regarding fundamental definitions or empirical methods for studying the global. Scholars in the Framing the Global project, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, have been collaboratively developing global research frameworks that are characterized by interdisciplinarity, empirical grounding, and a concern with tracing the links between the transnational and the local in a variety of lived, political, discursive, cultural, and social domains. The conference will extend this conversation and explore evolving analytical frameworks for global studies research as well as innovative pedagogies for global learning.
We invite proposals for panels or individual papers that are empirically grounded while addressing important theoretical and methodological issues in studying the global. Scholars in all academic and professional fields are encouraged to submit proposals. Work that considers both practical and scholarly approaches to global studies, global issues, and globalization is welcome, as are proposals from scholars and educators who are working to create meaningful spaces for global learning.
Papers that show promise for being developed into books may be considered for publication in the project’s Framing the Global book series.
Please be sure to include all information requested on the abstract submission page, though please omit identifying information from your abstract.
