Global Community?

Transnational and Transdisciplinary Exchanges


In the wake of globalization, the humanities and social sciences have explored the existence and the possibilities of human community on a global scale. But these investigations have been developed within separate academic disciplines, with little exchange of ideas across disciplinary boundaries. This book draws together a variety of perspectives to offer an interdisciplinary, and critical, examination of global community past and present.

The volume opens with a contribution by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, one of the world's most renowned scholars in the humanities, then follows up with original contributions by established and promising young researchers from across the humanities and the social sciences. The chapters provide conceptual, normative and empirical investigations of global community, examining it through the lenses of postcolonialism, cosmopolitanism, world literature, transnational networks, and global ethics. The book contributes to a renewed debate about the past, present and future of global community, allowing for a broader and deeper understanding of these timely phenomena across disciplinary boundaries.
