THE GLOBAL STUDIES CONFERENCE
University of Illinois, Chicago, 16-18 May 2008 http://www.GlobalStudiesConference.com
The Global Studies Conference on Global Studies Journal are devoted to mapping and interpreting new trends and patterns in globalization. This journal and the conference attempt to do this from many points of view, from many locations in the world, and in a wide-angle kaleidoscopic fashion.
As well as impressive line-up of international main speakers, the Conference will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the Conference Call-for-Papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed Global Studies Journal. If you are unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in this fully refereed academic Journal, as well as access to the electronic version of the Conference proceedings.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 14 February 2008. Proposals are reviewed within four weeks of submission. Full details of the Conference, including an online proposal submission form, are to be found at the Conference website – http://www.GlobalStudiesConference.com
We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in Chicago in May 2008.
