Early Career Summer School: Theory for a Global Age

arabic_world_map.jpgWith globalisation seen to be the existing condition of the world, it is necessary to examine the different theoretical perspectives on globalisation that are emerging from across the world. Two such perspectives are those of postcolonialism and cosmopolitanism. While both perspectives engage with similar questions, they offer different analyses and, significantly, these are offered independently of any engagement between these perspectives. With this advanced summer school we will bring these perspectives into a productive tension with each other while considering some of the most urgent social and political issues facing us today.

The Summer School is aimed at early career researchers and academics, including PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, and is supported by an array of top quality academics from the University of Warwick as well as by invited academics internationally recognised in their fields.
