2015 program

Welcome to the 2015 CSA Conference

Plenary Session

Friday, November 13, 5:00-6:15

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Bill Robinson

 

Bill Robinson is a professor of sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  He is also affiliated with the Latin American and Iberian Studies Program, and with the Global and International Studies Program at UCSB.   His scholarly research focuses on: macro and comparative sociology, globalization and transnationalism, political economy, political sociology, development and social change, immigration, Latin America and the Third World, and Latina/o studies.   As a scholar-activist he attempts to link his academic work to struggles in the United States, in the Americas, and around the world for social justice, popular empowerment, participatory democracy, and people-centered development.

Bill received his BA in 1981 based on studies at universities in Kenya, Nigeria and Costa Rica.  He became a journalist and worked extensively in Central America during the l980s.  He resumed his studies and earned an MA in Latin American Studies and a PhD in Sociology from the University of New Mexico in the early 1990s.  He has published eight books (including Promoting Polyarchy: Globalization, U.S. Intervention, and Hegemony, A Theory of Global Capitalism, and Latin America and Global Capitalism: A Globalization Perspective and well as dozens of journal articles and book chapters.

His keynote address at the conference will be drawn from his most recent book Global Capitalism and the Crisis of Humanity (2014 Cambridge University Press).  He argues that there are several key features of this crisis: 1) the system is fast reaching its ecological limits, 2) the magnitude of the means of violence and control are unprecedented, and it is concentrated in the hands of a very few powerful groups, 3) capitalism, which has always been based on growth, seems to be reaching the limits of its expansion, 4) there is a rise of a vast surplus human population inhabiting a “planet of slums,” 5) there is a disjuncture between a globalizing economy and a nation-state system of political authority, and finally 6) there is the danger of the rise of a global police state.  If all this seems rather grim, Bill promises to leaven his presentation with some humor and levity: he is an engaging and provocative speaker! Understanding the crisis, of course, is the first step toward formulating ways to escape from it: the point is not to simply understand the world, but to change it!

Welcome to the 2015 CSA Conference

Plenary Session

Friday, November 13, 5:00-6:15

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Bill Robinson

 

Bill Robinson is a professor of sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  He is also affiliated with the Latin American and Iberian Studies Program, and with the Global and International Studies Program at UCSB.   His scholarly research focuses on: macro and comparative sociology, globalization and transnationalism, political economy, political sociology, development and social change, immigration, Latin America and the Third World, and Latina/o studies.   As a scholar-activist he attempts to link his academic work to struggles in the United States, in the Americas, and around the world for social justice, popular empowerment, participatory democracy, and people-centered development.

Bill received his BA in 1981 based on studies at universities in Kenya, Nigeria and Costa Rica.  He became a journalist and worked extensively in Central America during the l980s.  He resumed his studies and earned an MA in Latin American Studies and a PhD in Sociology from the University of New Mexico in the early 1990s.  He has published eight books (including Promoting Polyarchy: Globalization, U.S. Intervention, and Hegemony, A Theory of Global Capitalism, and Latin America and Global Capitalism: A Globalization Perspective and well as dozens of journal articles and book chapters.

His keynote address at the conference will be drawn from his most recent book Global Capitalism and the Crisis of Humanity (2014 Cambridge University Press).  He argues that there are several key features of this crisis: 1) the system is fast reaching its ecological limits, 2) the magnitude of the means of violence and control are unprecedented, and it is concentrated in the hands of a very few powerful groups, 3) capitalism, which has always been based on growth, seems to be reaching the limits of its expansion, 4) there is a rise of a vast surplus human population inhabiting a “planet of slums,” 5) there is a disjuncture between a globalizing economy and a nation-state system of political authority, and finally 6) there is the danger of the rise of a global police state.  If all this seems rather grim, Bill promises to leaven his presentation with some humor and levity: he is an engaging and provocative speaker! Understanding the crisis, of course, is the first step toward formulating ways to escape from it: the point is not to simply understand the world, but to change it!
