>GLOBALIZATION AND THE CURRENCY OF IDEAS
>At the turn of the last century it was the idea of modernity that
>acquired intellectual primacy. Today, however, the notion of
>globalization controls all our thoughts and actions. With rapid human
>migration, accompanied by the spread of the information revolution,
>the world has become a more compact, shared social and economic
>space. Globalization is more than just a buzz-word; it is also about
>people, culture, society, politics, history, and much more. The
>issues we are concerned with today are forever undergoing
>transformation. Concepts such as national culture, cultural
>identities, nation state, ethnicity, hybridity, etc. either become
>redundant or get blurred. We are constantly required to review and
>revise our standpoint.
>Accordingly, the study of humanities also undergoes a change which is
>reflected in our academic exercises ñ in the research we undertake,
>in our curriculum and in the new canons that are constantly in a
>state of flux. How we study diverse subjects like literature,
>history, politics and economics consequently undergoes
>transformations. What are the newly emerging areas that grab our
>attention and why? How do they replace yester year's academic
>interests? What implications do they hold for the times to come? How
>will they impact future events?
>Panjab University Research Journal (Arts) invites scholarly articles
>(between 3,000 and 5,000 words) for its forthcoming issue on the
>broad theme of Globalization and the Currency of Ideas. "Currency of
>ideas" may be interpreted in several ways ñ as a medium of exchange /
>interaction or circulation, as that which is prevalent or in general
>acceptance, as the state of being current or up-to-date or belonging
>to the present time. What are the ideas in vogue today which shape
>and mould our various transactions? How have they impacted our
>social, economic or political behavior?
>This is a call for papers on related issues from across disciplines ñ
>language, literature, the arts / humanities, social sciences,
>cultural studies. Suggested broad areas include, but may go beyond,
>globalization and national literary traditions,globalization of
>markets or labour, popular culture or world culture, language,
>communication, media, and the arts.
