May 15, 2003

We are at a critical moment in human history. The fabric of ideas and relationships that sustained the post-World War II order has come unraveled, exposing serious gaps in the ways that differently situated human communities understand and pursue the good, and undermining institutions that served, however, precariously, to bind them together. Can the old fabric be restored, or will it be substantially rewoven, and if so, on what basis? What part will understandings of human rights, of difference and dignity, of belief, and of sustainability play in the reconfiguration of power, governance, and livelihood in the 21st Century? IGS seeks original papers that address these themes for its General Seminar, to be held on Thursdays in Fall 2003. We will give preference to work that expresses views not adequately represented in the United States and Europe. Topics may include issues of political, legal and/or economic institutions, cultural and/or social movements, human rights, the environment, militarization and violence. Please submit a 75-100 word abstract to IGS by May 15th, 2003. We prefer electronic submission (to Dr. Felicity S. Northcott, but copies may be mailed to: Dr. Felicity S. Northcott, Associate Director, The Institute for Global Studies in Culture, Power and History, Room 117, The Greenhouse, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 North Charles Street Baltimore, MD. 21218, FAX: (410) 516-3490 PHONE: (410) 516-7794
