[UPDATE] Deadline Extension (6/30) for Global Lives Conference

updated: 
Friday, June 1, 2012 - 3:21pm
Cultural Analysis and Theory Department, Stony Brook University

Global Lives

The rapid changes currently experienced in the different spheres of contemporary life are loosely addressed by the term "globalization."

How do we theorize these changes? And perhaps more importantly, while these changes are often considered a global phenomenon, are they not also shaped by a set of discourses? This calls for a reconsideration of key terms such as "domination" and "hegemony", as well as of the various intellectual/cultural positions associated with them. In particular, we aim to reconsider the cultural sphere as a globalized phenomenon in which cultural products circulate on a worldwide scale, and as a sphere where "global" experiences are articulated.
