The phenomenon of transnational connectedness, involving all social domains – from the cultural through the economic, political, legal, military, and environmental – is a topic of intense scrutiny for many people, even entire units, of our campus and throughout our community.
This on-going initiative has several components. First, we hope to serve as a clearing-house for the many on-going campus projects on globalization. We are currently investigating the most efficient ways to enable researchers across campus to communicate with one another, as well as to publicize lectures, symposia and the like to the campus and community at large. Second, we hope to showcase the on-going work at UIUC on globalization by hosting a series of informal discussions and presentations. Finally, we plan a small, but world-class, series of public lectures by invited speakers.
