Sutherlin to serve on editorial board for Global Studies Association
Dr. John W. Sutherlin, ULM political science professor and co-director of the Social Science Research Laboratory, will serve on the Global Studies Association editorial board during the next year.
At the GSA Annual Conference held June 6 – 8 at Pace University in New York, Sutherlin delivered two papers: one on intellectual property changes for India and China; the other on environmental policy under authoritarian regimes.
“GSA is the most important organization of its kind with top-tier researchers from across the world,” remarked Sutherlin. “For ULM to have representation on its editorial board for next year, for the first time ever, says a great deal about where this university is headed.”
Sutherlin will work with a number of global scholars on a range of topics including workers rights, nationalism in a global world, environmental and resource management and the nature of conflict.
“One of the reoccurring themes for the GSA has always been change. How can we make our world, our communities better? The range of alternatives presented by researchers is as broad and diverse as the world itself.”
The GSA has already begun receiving papers and will review and edit throughout the summer and fall. Publications are made available each year at the annual conference.
GSA is a multi-disciplinary scholarly association set up in order to address the vast social, political and economic transformations of global scope that are impacting upon the world today. GSA provides a forum for scholars to collaborate and explore shared responses to such phenomenon, particularly in the context of globalization. It is headquartered at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.
