Visualizing Globalization

Thursday June 26, 2008, at 14:00
Aula 4 - IBEI
Research seminar
Miguel Angel Centeno (Princeton University)
Despite overwhelming rhetorical attention to the topic of globalization, our understanding of the phenomenon remains limited. To appreciate the particular qualities of globalization, the metaphor of a network may be appropriate. A focus on networks allows us to examine the integration of economic, social, political, and cultural regimes as a process in and of itself. Viewing globalization as a network allows us to combine different forms of interaction (e.g., trade, migration, conflict) into a cohesive portrait of international integration. The Mapping Globalization Project (http://qed.princeton.edu/index.php/MG) seeks to create a data archive with which to better understand historical and contemporary globalization. This presentation provides an introduction to the Project and discusses some basic findings.
