Liberal Arts Perspectives on Globalism and Transnationalism: Within the Knot

As international trade and economic activities expand, online technologies spread, and restless populations shift across international boundaries, reactionary movements have sprung up around the globe. These reactionary forces, which include nationalism and populism, have exposed many blind-spots of ongoing globalization projects. To understand the frictions between transnational enterprises and local resistance more fully, as well as analyze the human cost of immigration and the threats posed by online technologies, scholars from around the world gathered in Doha, Qatar, for the Sixth Annual Liberal Arts International Conference (2018). This volume, based on selected papers from this meeting, discusses the roles and effects of transnational and cross-cultural education, technology, migrant workers and refugees, and research methodologies in order to understand current challenges surrounding globalization.
