The Global Studies Association is an organisation that focuses on global issues facing us in the modern world from a sociological perspective. This includes analysing notions of globalisation, cosmopolitanism, nationality, identity, inter-connectedness and many more themes. The GSA holds an annual conference to discuss contemporary global issues and this year is all about Global Dis-Connections.

In 2021, our Annual GSA Conference will be replaced by a Colloquium. More details about the series of events we organise can be found here.

Our fourth event in the series will take place on Friday 17 September 2021, 4-5.30pm (BST).

During this panel we have three Global Studies scholars presenting their work and reflections on processes of globalization, the impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic and notions of the post-apocalypse. Dr Darren O’Byrne from Roehampton University with present and also moderate the event, and he will be joined by Dr Rafal Soborski from Richmond University and Professor Jerry Harris, who is the National Secretary of the North American branch of the Global Studies Association. Each paper will be 15 minutes with plenty of time for questions from participants and discussion of these crucial issues.
