Norrköping workshop on Indo-European ICT flows and networks
May 6, 2013 - 00:00-May 7, 2013 - 00:00
An Indo-Swedish research workshop on ”Reverse and intensified globalisation – the case of ICT. Flows and networks of trade, FDI, skilled labour, students, knowledge and ideas from India to regions in Europe” will be held in Norrköping, Sweden, on 6–7 May 2013. The theme for this workshop is inspired by research debates challenging what may be summarised as the school book image of globalisation and international division of labour between the ‘Global North’ and ‘Global South’ in a given hierarchical order. The workshop is organised by the Centre for Municipal Studies, Linköping University, Campus Norrköping in collaboration with the departments of Computer and Systems Sciences, and Human Geography, Stockholm University; and the International Institute of Information Technology (IITB) in Bangalore, India.
The Norrköping workshop will be folllwed up with another workshop to be held in India in November 2013. The research workshops will also be followed up with seminars with actors outside the academy (including companies, trade organisation and politicians and other organisations with interest in relations of ICT activities between India and Europe). Deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday 8th March 2013. Full information about the Norrköping workshop.
