The Global Turn : Theories, Research Designs, and Methods for Global Studies Paperback / softback


The ability to deploy interdisciplinary theoretical perspectives that speak to interconnected global dimensions is critical if one's work is to be relevant and applicable to the emerging global-scale issues of our time.

The Global Turn is a guide for students and scholars across all areas of the social sciences and humanities who wish to embark on global-studies research projects.

The authors demonstrate how the global can be studied from a local perspective and vice versa.

They show how global processes manifest at multiple levels-transnational, regional, national, and local-all of which are interconnected and mutually constitutive.

This book takes readers through the steps of thinking like a global scholar in theoretical, methodological, and practical terms, and it explains the implications of global perspectives for research design.
