The editors of New Global Studies invite proposals for essays on the subject of ‘global futures’. Essays may cover any historical period. The central questions that this forum poses are:
How have globalization and globality affected historical periodization?
How do global re-conceptualizations of the past and present rely on assumptions and beliefs about the future?
How has the now-widespread use of the term ‘anthropocene’ affected a global consciousness?
How do the phenomena of de-globalization and re-globalization relate to global futures?
How do ‘unforeseen’ future events (particularly crises such as pandemics) employ global narratives?
What is the place of futurism in global studies?
