INTERACT Lecture Series: Rethinking the Global
Globalization is a strange concept–simultaneously undisputed in its existence and radically contested in its meaning. The idea that the world is irrevocably interconnected in new and distinct ways has been a central, if unwieldy, locus of academic study for almost twenty years now. Exploring topics ranging from labor to migration, war to climate change, these lectures aim to reframe key debates in the study of the interconnectedness of the planet.
