The Meaning of Global/Globalizing Knowledge: Home

Guide supporting the Center for Global Studies program of the same name - September 26, 2018

The Debate

How do we think of this in terms of the responsibility of the University in generating global knowledge? What do we think in terms of knowledge flows and in terms of responsibilities of educators, intellectuals and marketers of global knowledge?
