FIFTH GLOBAL STUDIES CONFERENCE
Lomonosov Moscow State University
20-22 June, 2012
We are pleased to host the Global Studies Conference this year at Lomonosov Moscow State University in Moscow, Russia. As the center of one of the emerging BRICS economies, Moscow is an ideally relevant location for this year’s conference, with the special theme – Eurasia and Globalization: Complexity and Global Studies.
The Global Studies Conference is devoted to mapping and interpreting new trends and patterns in globalization, and serves as an open forum for exploring globalization from many perspectives. Scholars, researchers, and graduate students from all backgrounds, all over the world are joining this cross-disciplinary conference, and we hope that you will join the conversation.
Speakers may include, among other researchers and experts:
* Ilya Ilin, Moscow State University
* John Urry, Lancaster University
* Leonid E. Grinin, Volgograd Center for Social Research
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.
