Critical Globality

Lecture series

Critical Globality is a new lecture series at Roskilde University. At a time when global questions radically increase in importance, we need to ask questions about how ‘the global’ can best be understood. With three invited speakers per semester, Critical Globality will engage international scholars in a conversation about historical and contemporary iterations of global connections, networks, economies and politics.
