Welcome to the 3rd International Conference on the Social Sciences, Sociology and Globalization in Asia (COSGA 2017). This is an international, peer-reviewed weekend event. All sessions will be held at the KKR Hotel in Hiroshima, Japan on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 1-3, 2017.

With the focus on globalization and social issues, COSGA 2017 is being organized alongside The 2nd Symposium on Media and Globalization in Asia (SYGMA) and The 4th Asian Symposium on Education, Equity and Social Justice (EQUIS).

About COSGA 2017

There is no term these days with greater salience and complexity to describe the modern world than “globalization.” Although it is most prevalent in discussions on economics, its manifestation and influence span political, social, cultural and ideological realms as well. But what does “globalization” actually mean? The sociologist Roland Robertson first defined it in 1992 as “the compression of the world and the intensification of the consciousness of the world as a whole,” clearly transforming our ideas of space through complex social relations and other processes.

Recent advances in transportation and technology have shattered our notions of isolated societies, lifting geographic, cultural, and belief barriers. This integration of societies has created an increased global interdependence or at least an interconnectedness whereby a nation’s actions have global effects, whether they are political, economical, cultural, etc. Globalization has brought many blessings; however, as it is sustained by values that characterize it as desirable progress, inequality, conflict, poverty, and environmental/climate change, among other ill-effects, are often overshadowed and exacerbated.

As globalization intensifies in the 21st century, it is crucial we deepen our understanding of it by challenging our assumptions and analyzing the changing social dynamics it creates. This 3-day conference will provide an interdisciplinary platform for academics, researchers, policy makers, students and interested community members. With the theme Sociological Perspectives on Globalization, the conference will be a wonderful opportunity to explore current research, trends, and insights about this phenomenon while expanding your professional networks.
