Globalization and Autonomy
Series editor: William D. Coleman
The Globalization and Autonomy Series is the result of a major international research initiative sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. This international and interdisciplinary research project investigates the relationship between globalization and the processes of securing and building autonomy. In particular, the series assesses:
- the opportunities globalization might create and the constraints globalization might place on individuals and communities seeking to secure and build autonomy;
- the extent to which individuals and communities might be able to exploit these opportunities and to overcome these constraints;
- the opportunities for empowerment that globalization might create for individuals and communities seeking to secure and to build autonomy; and
- how the autonomy available to individuals and communities might permit them to contest, reshape, or engage globalization.
The Globalization and Autonomy Series includes contributors from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Jordan, Lebanon, Slovenia, Spain Taiwan, Tunisia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Disciplines represented include Anthropology, Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies, Economics, English Literature, Ethnomusicology, Geography, History, Philosophy, Political Science, and Sociology.
