Recently these themes have included a focus on globalization, urbanization, and diversity. As programs are developed they will be posted on this page.

CSSR Globalization and Connectedness Series

Experiencing Globalization: This year the CSSR will explore the many ways by which individuals experience everyday globalization in its multiple forms from the products we buy, to the languages we speak and hear, and media sources we encounter. How do individuals come to understand the many processes of globalization and make sense of it all? In this theme, the macro will intersect with the micro in ways rarely seen. More information will be available soon, so please check back.
