Call for Proposals: Looking Forward, Looking Back: Transnational Perspectives on Globalization, 1-3 February 2015 at Texas A&M University at Qatar

The Liberal Arts Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for its Third Annual Liberal Arts International Conference.

This third annual conference will explore the impacts of globalization from a variety of disciplinary lenses. How has globalization transformed us individually and collectively? How is globalization shaping notions of ethics? Is globalization merely a shrinking of the world or is it transforming human experience? What challenges does globalization pose to understandings of the self and the other? How do we sustain a globalized world in terms of food, energy, and education? Are we already living in a post-globalized world?

We welcome submissions from across the spectrum of academic fields, including politics, history, linguistics, technology, language studies, sociology, anthropology, geography, economics, philosophy, ethics, law, religion, and cultural studies. We especially encourage contributions from PhD students and scholars working in non-western and/or underrepresented regions.

In order to be considered, please submit a panel proposal or individual paper proposal through our online system at liberalarts.qatar.tamu.edu till September 30th.
