Research Consortium ‘Global Studies’

This multi-disciplinary research consortium aims at studying how global processes of social, economic, political and cultural change have structured our world in the past and present and given globalisation its current shape.  In keeping with the spatial turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities, the consortium aims to question the boundaries and scales of space and place, focusing on the co-construction of the local and the global, with special attention to the historical and ethical dimensions of economic, political, social and cultural globalisation, and to (local) agency in global processes and world-making projects.
