Welcome to the Critical Global Studies Institute.
Sogang University's Critical Global Studies Institute (CGSI) seeks to rescue humanities and social sciences from the framework of the nation-state and offer a new vision for humanities of the 21st century, with a global outlook on humans, society, and the environment. Supporting "globalization from below" as opposed to "globalization from above," CGSI aspires to provide a discursive space where ideas and practices are challenged, developed, and honed. I invite everyone to join in building our discursive space where there is no distinction between host and guest, with a critical awareness of the differences in nation, race, gender, class, and generation, without being shackled by them.
