Presentation title: Global Studies in an Age of VUCA

Abstract:

The field of Global Studies has arguably reached a crucial stage in its evolution with the growth of programs in many countries around the world and publication of The Oxford Handbook of Global Studies (Juergensmeyer et al., 2018).  However, a number of dichotomized tensions have been identified by those who have been involved with Global Studies from the beginning (Juergensmeyer, 2021). In addition to such challenges, recent emphasis on VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) problems in many social sciences has led to a renewed focus on education that proposes moving beyond fixed knowledge content (Stein, 2021).  What such an approach to problem solving would entail in relation to Global Studies as a field and Global Studies education is also debatable.  Recent work on problems has taken at least two approaches, one that explores problems at a more fundamental level of meaning making and another which proposes merging global citizenship education with particular emphases, such as sustainable development (Khoo and Jorgensen, 2021).  This talk focuses on these developments and returns to a central question: What are the prospects for Global Studies in the third decade of the 21st century?
