Message from the Director
  • Welcome to the Critical Global Studies Institute.

    The Sogang University’s Critical Global Studies Institute (CGSI) seeks to rescue Korea’s humanities and social sciences from the nation and develop a new vision of 21st century humanities with a global outlook on humans, society, and the environment, one that supports ‘globalization from below’ as an alternative to ‘globalization from above’. CGSI serves as a space of discourse to consider theory and practice related to this goal. To our open space of discourse where we are all host and guest with no distinction between the two, where we are critically self-aware of the differences of nation, race, gender, class, generation, without being locked up in them – to the Sogang CGSI I invite you.
