Annual Conference

Global Studies Conference attendees include leaders in the field, as well as emerging scholars, who travel to the conference from all corners of the globe and represent a broad range of disciplines and perspectives. A variety of presentation options and session types offer opportunities for attendees to share their work, discuss key issues in the field, and build relationships with attendees.

Membership in the network is included with each conference registration.

Journal & Books

The Global Studies Research Network supports a book imprint and a journal.
