PGDT Journal Cover


With much of the US reopening, The Global Studies Association of North America is looking forward to meeting once again in person, but travel, especially globally, is still uncertain for many people at this point. We have also been unable to coordinate with a university by our normal June meeting date, so we feel it necessary to wait another year before we are able to organize another conference.

Nevertheless, as we do each year, we are again going to publish a set of papers in the journal Perspectives on Global Development and Technology. This year we are interested in any topics that focus on globalization, but especially the following:

  • Globalization and the COVID-19 Pandemic
  • Are We Entering a Post-Neoliberal Era?
  • The Cold War between the US and China

Papers must be complete including citations and references, be between 2000 and 8000 words (not including references), and be formatted according to the following style guide:

Deadline to submit papers is August 1, 2021.

The Global Studies Association (UK) 2021 Colloquium

You are invited to join the GSA for a series of online events over the course of 2021, bringing together key figures in global studies. 

Replacing the UK conference, this colloquium allows us to make and regularly re-join conversations on the global issues of our day and how they impact our understanding of the global system. 

The series is dedicated to our friend, colleague, and founding GSA member Dr. Paul Kennedy.

International Conference

Liberalism and/or Socialism: Tensions, Exchanges and Convergences from the 19th Century to Today 

University of Lorraine – Nancy (France)

October 21-22, 2021

The fall of the Berlin Wall led Francis Fukuyama in 1992 to predict the triumph of liberal democracy. However, the terrorist attacks of 2001, the economic crisis of 2008, Brexit and the Covid crisis have resulted in the reappearance of debates about the relationship between the state and the individual, ranging from the representation of the former in democratic countries to the distribution of wealth.
