Global Networks

A journal of transnational affairs


Globalizations seeks to publish the best work exploring new meanings of globalization, bringing fresh ideas to the concept, broadening its scope, and contributing to shaping the debates of the future. The journal is dedicated to opening the widest possible space for discussion of alternatives to a narrow economic understanding of globalization. The move from the singular to the plural is deliberate and implies skepticism of the idea that there can ever be a single theory or interpretation of globalization. Rather, the journal will seek to encourage the exploration and discussion of multiple interpretations and multiple processes that may constitute many possible globalizations, many possible alternatives. The journal is open to all fields of knowledge, including the natural, environmental, medical, and public health sciences, as well as the social sciences and humanities. Globalizations will especially encourage multidisciplinary research and seek to publish contributions from all regions of the world.

GRN: Globalization Research Network

The Globalization Research Network is a consortium of research centers whose mission is to conduct collaborative activities among its members and others in globalization areas of scholarly and public concern. These activities include theoretical and applied research and public education.

New Global Studies

New Global Studies is the first journal to approach contemporary globalization as a whole, and across disciplinary lines. It draws from history, sociology, anthropology, political science, and international relations to study the past and present of today’s globalizing process. Topics include the patterns and local effects of economic globalization, global media networks, preservation of the global environment, transnational manifestations of culture, and the methodology of global studies itself. New Global Studies is an essential resource: a single journal for those who are interested in global affairs and the contemporary history of globalization, both broadly and in depth.
