The Global Studies Association of North America, VP of Research, Dean of Social Sciences, and Centre for Global Studies will be sponsoring next year’s conference, “Dystopia and Global Rebellion” at University of Victoria, Vancouver Island, Canada on May 4-6, 2012.
Social crisis shakes Europe and the US, racist motivated violence shocks Norway, nuclear meltdown radiates Japan, while spreading drought and floods are billboards for global warming. It seems the future has arrived and it doesn’t look good.
Yet democratic movements spread like wildfire throughout the Middle East, youth movements come alive in the UK, France and Spain, rebellion takes to the streets in Greece, and the US working class wakes up in Wisconsin. Dystopia and global rebellion indeed. The 2012 conference theme focuses our attention on the problems and alternatives we face in our struggle for a just and better world.
Keynote speakers include William K. Carroll, Jerry Harris, Paul James, Martha McMahon, Kara Shaw, Manfred B. Steger, and Waziyatawin.
Abstracts of 100 words should be sent by March 21, 2012 to Jerry Harris at.
