“Global Knowledge, Global Conversations, Critical Issues: A more critical global conversation on world politics”
How can we open up our minds and learn how to think differently about the world, its different regions and societies? How can we connect with streams of thought, ideas, thinkers, scholars, and experience, from around the world? How might we be better informed by intellectual currents beyond the global North and its circuits of knowledge? How can we have truly global conversations beyond the conventional elite circuits and boundaries of knowledge? What might truly global knowledge look like?
