Mission Statement

Exploring Globalization - An Online Scholarly JournalExploring Globalization, an online journal published by the Office of Global Learning at Fairleigh Dickinson University, emphasizes reviews of books that address issues of global significance and publishes original articles and interviews on questions such as impact of globalization on the environment, on the nature of conflict, on political systems, on economic systems, and on the well-being of individuals and groups.  A feature of the journal is a special section on the pedagogy of teaching globalization.

This online publication is offered as a medium for reflecting on globalization and inquiring about its effects. Contributors may consider the consequences of globalization for the international body of nations as well as for specific nations, regions, and communities. They may investigate the impact of globalization on the environment, on the nature of conflict, on political systems, on economic systems, or on the well-being of individuals and groups.

The views expressed in Exploring Globalization are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Editorial Board or of Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Special Feature: Pedagogies of Globalization

Exploring Globalization, in its interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach, informs readers of different conceptual frameworks for understanding globalization. This section places emphasis on the pedagogy – how to teach about globalization. Approaches to globalization transcend traditional academic disciplinary boundaries; in order to effectively address these complex issues, we need to examine the way we teach students about business, history, economics, language studies, psychology, the arts, geography, politics, and the sciences. What are some effective pedagogical techniques used when teaching about a particular aspect of globalization? How do we address in our classrooms the ever expanding spatial parameters of human encounters? To whose benefit are these encounters? What are the issues that arise? It is the goal of this section to provide pedagogical tools that facilitate the process of exploring globalization.
