Keynote presentation by Dr. Ben Rosamond

Royal Holloway, University of London

Regions and regional integration are often analysed from a perspective that emphasizes the specificity of a region compared to others, focus on the boundaries of the region, or the shared identity of the region in comparison to others. This workshop aims to open up the study of regionalism by exploring the global and transnational dimensions of regions. Themes of interest to the workshop organizers include:

– the integration (or fragmentation) of regions as one outcome of economic and political globalization

– transnational migration and regional integrity

– the significance of regions for global politics and society

– new perspectives on comparative regionalism

– transnational and global perspectives on identity construction

– the interplay of regions and world politics

– regional and global identities

– regional and global history

Please submit a 300 word abstract of your proposed paper to Alistair Brisbourne . Support for travel and/or accommodation is available for a number of delegates.

Papers presented at the workshop must be original and not previously published or under consideration for publication. The organizers aim to publish an edited collection comprising papers presented at the workshop. The book series ‘Routledge Studies in Global and Transnational Politics’, edited by the organizers, would be an appropriate venue for the proposed volume.
