Please consider contributing a paper or your services as a discussant to the
session on the global level of integration and its relationship to the
local. You may send your title and abstract to me at paulanthropus at cox.net.
Here is the abstract for the session.
Linking the Global Level of Integration with the Local:: Definition, Theory,
The papers of this panel address the conceptualization of a worldwide level
of integration identified by various rubrics: supranational level of
integration, global capitalism, globalization, global level of integration.
However termed, the papers presented here acknowledge a supranational
formation beyond the state level of integration conceptualized by Steward
and Service. The first paper synthesizes existing literature on the
supranational level of integration and goes on to conceptualize power with
network analysis connecting actors at all levels of integration. In the
second paper, the author examines the role played by information and
communication technology in linking local informal economies with the global
one, using the tourist trade as an example. The third paper examines Indian
women workers' status and role in a Nike factory in Delhi, partly as a
product of local conditions, but also as one of company policy. The
creation of a global space for resistance and alternative economies brought
about by corporate capitalism forms the topic of the fourth paper, which
illustrates the process with the recuperación movement of closed factories
in Argentina and seven other Latin American countries, and touching on other
resistance movements elsewhere.
