No charge for undergraduate students from the UK and Republic of Ireland
This conference is a partnership between the Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies and the School of Sociology and Applied Social Science, University of Ulster.
Globalisation interests scholars from a wide variety of different subject areas including area studies, sociology, history, modern languages, geography and economics. Aimed at undergraduate students, this study day seeks to explore different disciplinary approaches to the study of globalisation.
The conference will:
* explore different perspectives and ideas about globalisation in contemporary and historical contexts.
* provide insights into how people working in different subjects approach the study of globalisation.
* demonstrate a range of topics which impact upon and are impacted by globalisation.
The conference is free of charge to students of UK and Republic of Ireland Higher Education Institutions, though prior registration is necessary. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
* Michael Cronin, School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies, Dublin City University
