Marburg University organizes a conference on the glocalization of development. Local life worlds are increasingly permeated by global norms and global knowledge, which challenge local institutions and authorities. The aim of the conference is to develop key elements of an interdisciplinary theoretical perspective on localization processes and the University of Marburg welcomes proposals for papers from the fields of sociology, political science and law on one side and anthropology on the other side. The will be divided into two distinct parts, a classical scholarly conference with pre-designed panels, presentations and discussions as well as a "non-conference" which lacks a fixed agenda but will be participant driven, i.e. the participants decide on the content and the course of the day.
Deadline for application: 15 February 2015. Click here for more information on the conference.
