SOAR is SUNY Oneonta's open access undergraduate social science journal. This selective peer-reviewed forum is student-run and faculty-advised. The primary goal is to provide undergraduate students from any university with an outlet for publishing rigorous academic research. (Click the image to visit the journal).
"Imagining Globalization" provides a multifaceted discussion of globalization that integrates cultural, economic, and political perspectives. The cases in the collection encompass the historical eras of colonization, Cold War, and post-Cold War. The book's multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches allow the exploration of identity, boundaries, language use, and other issues in the context of specific temporal and spatial contexts.
The chapters in the book--"Language," "Identities," and "Boundaries"--were derived from three conferences organized by the Center for Social Science Research at SUNY Oneonta.
