Theory for a Global Age

About the series

Globalization is widely viewed as a current condition of the world, but there is little engagement with how this changes the way we understand it. This series addresses the impact of globalization on the social sciences and humanities. Each title focuses on a particular theoretical issue or topic of empirical controversy and debate, addressing theory in a comprehensive and interconnected manner. With contributions from scholars from across the globe, this series will explore different perspectives to examine globalization from a genuinely global viewpoint. The series is aimed at students and scholars of social and political theory, cultural and literary theory, history and postcolonial studies.

Previous titles are available at the Bloomsbury series page.

All books published in the Theory for a Global Age series are available Open Access on the OAPEN platform.
