Globalization is accelerating the interconnectedness and interdependency of economies, people and politics. This revolution is transforming our world, leaving no life or culture untouched. Yet, the process of globalization is complex and diverse. Hence, a multidisciplinary approach is required to understand its challenges and how it will continue to change our lives.
Brown Symposium XXIV will present four distinguished social scientists who will offer their views on the economic, social and environmental issues, as well as the winners and losers, in the runaway race to globalize.
The Brown Symposium is presented by Southwestern University on an annual basis. Open to the public without charge, the symposium is funded through an endowment established by The Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston, Texas, for professorships at the University.
The symposia are designed to enhance the effectiveness of the work for which the endowed professorships were established. Each symposium presents topics in one of the broad areas of study represented by a chairholder.
"Globalization: Win-Win or Win-Lose?", the 24th symposium in the series, has been developed by A.J. Senchack, professor of economics and business and holder of the Lucy King Brown Chair.
The Brown Symposium, open to the public without charge, is funded by The Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston, Texas. For more information on Brown Symposium XXIV, please call 512-863-1902.
