The silent qualifiers of globalisation

Discussion about globalisation has been undermined and confused by a widespread failure to recognise the 'silent qualifiers' of globalisation - namely generic, capitalist and alternative globalisations.

This is the argument Leslie Sklair, professor of sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), will make at a public lecture at LSE on Tuesday 1 March.

Professor Sklair will draw on his current research on Iconic Architecture and Capitalist Globalisation to illustrate the lecture.

Professor Nikolas Rose, LSE, will chair this event.

The Silent Qualifiers of Globalisation is on Tuesday 1 March at 6pm in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
