New World Crucibles of Globalization
From a transdisciplinary perspective, the Summer School focuses on two critical phases of globalization in Latin America and its relation to Europe and Asia. The Summer School will use the primordial scene of modern globalization in the 16th and 17th centuries as a mirror for the current situation, which can be seen as a triumph, and at the same time, as a crisis of the global order. Hence, the Summer School aims at an archeological description and regionally comparative reflection of two phases of globalization in which economic and cultural transformation are intrinsically intertwined. We focus on symbolic imbrications between Latin America, Europe, and Asia, in language, culture, and literature, as well as economic and legal relations.
