Rethinking regions: Transnational and global perspectives

  • Alistair Brisbourne (Organiser)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Regions and regional integration are often analysed from a perspective that emphasizes the specificity of a region compared to others, focus on the boundaries of the region, or the shared identity of the region in comparison to others. This workshop aims to open up the study of regionalism by exploring the global and transnational dimensions of regions. Themes of interest to the workshop organizers include:

– the integration (or fragmentation) of regions as one outcome of economic and political globalization

– transnational migration and regional integrity

– the significance of regions for global politics and society

– new perspectives on comparative regionalism

– transnational and global perspectives on identity construction

– the interplay of regions and world politics

– regional and global identities

– regional and global history
