This spring Loyola University will host a conference on Globalization and Social Justice. This will be a progressive conference embracing a variety of critical, and radical perspectives on globalization. We will explore such topics as the effects of neoliberal capitalism in its globalized form on inequality, injustice and environmental despoliation. We will look at new forms of domination in relationship to the growing role of the computer/internet in fostering greater inequality as well as social mobilization and how globalization has impacted race, gender and identity.

Keynote Speakers at the Opening Plenary, Friday, May 10 at 6:30 pm:
Saskia Sassen, Professor of Sociology at the University of Chicago and an expert on the place of cities in the global economy.

Richard Longworth, Senior Writer at the Chicago Tribune, Adjunct Professor of International Relations at Northwestern University and author of "Global Squeeze."

Leslie Sklair, Reader in Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science, author of "The Transnationalist Capitalist Class" and "Sociology of the Global System."
