Symposium on Globalization and the Humanities: Then and Now, Here and There
February 25, 2010 @ 7:30 pm - February 27, 2010 @ 9:00 pm
IRH 50th Anniversary Symposium:
The Symposium will address a number of vital debates about globalization, focusing on what the humanities can contribute to understanding globalization as well as how the humanities are being reinvented as a result of globalization. The political, economic, and technological controversies about globalization often overshadow its cultural and philosophical dimensions. Social science debates typically focus on the pros and cons of globalization in the context of conflictual relations between the “West” and the rest of the world in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. The humanities have much to learn from these debates but also much to contribute.
