Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition, McMaster University

The Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition was set up in January 1998 in order to give life to the University Senate's decision to make Globalization and the Human Condition a "Strategic Area" of research at McMaster University. In giving "life" to the Strategic Area, the Institute has concentrated its efforts on two tasks. First, we have sought to build an intellectual community of the researchers (both faculty and graduate students) at the University and elsewhere interested in globalization and the human condition. Second, we have set up an interdisciplinary M.A. Programme in Globalization Studies, which received its first cohort of students in September 2004. With these activities, we seek to expand research and knowledge about globalizing processes and how these come to bear upon our lives, our communities, and the plants, animals and environments in which we live.
