When we have the audacity to call ourselves "global" we should at least make the attempt to address the world. 

What is this about?

On this blog, staff members of the School of Global Studies (University of Gothenburg) and guest authors from the academic community at large post about topics related to their work in a way that is accessible to the general public. We want to create a dialogue with people inside and outside of academia that goes beyond publications in peer-reviewed journals and includes essays, opinion pieces, short stories, images, poems, and in future maybe even podcasts and videos. 

The editorial team

We are (from left to right) Swati Parashar, Kit Narey, and Dustin Johnson. If you have any questions or want to publish on this blog, please get in touch with us:
