Project Details


Professor Chris Rumford challenged the idea that globalization was producing ‘one-world’ through a focus on the multiple experiences associated with globalization. He advocated a multi-perspectival account of social science capable of escaping its Eurocentric roots.

In exploring our understanding of borders, of strangers/strangeness, European integration, cosmopolitanism, and globalization, this symposium will provide a space to discuss and build on his contributions to understanding contemporary societies and the transformation of the politics of our time.

The event will include an art exhibition celebrating the themes of ‘strangeness’ and ‘betweenness’ curated by Laura McLean.
