We work as interdisciplinary scholars researching various aspects of global transformations. Our projects focus around two overriding themes:
- the abstract and impersonal macro-interconnectivities that increasingly bind together the fates of world citizens under globalising conditions. We explore the need to enhance understanding of how and why these endanger many social groups but also have the potential to enrich human experience
- the micro relationships being forged by individuals in cities, social movements and organisations which are intended to resist or reform global crises and to construct cross-ethnic and national understandings.
