Please come along to the Sociology seminar next Wednesday, co-sponsored with the Migration and Citizenship Research Group. Lunch will be provided.
Title: Nation, Transnationalization and Citizenship
Speaker: Yasemin Soysal (University of Essex)
Date and Time: 25th Mar 2015 11:00 – 13:00
Location: Chrystal Macmillan Building, 6th floor common room
Despite sociology’s increasing engagement with global processes, the relationship between global/transnational studies and cross-national, comparative studies remains a question, both conceptually and methodologically.
Yasemin Soysal’s talk will inquire into this relationship through an empirical focus on the transnationalization of nation and citizenship in East Asia. Soysal will attempt to clarify transnationalization as a distinct analytical mode, and in relation to comparative studies.
