Thirty Years of ProtoSociology

Pages 188-208

Picking over the Bones
Some Reflections on the State of Global Scholarship, and two Case Studies

In this essay I preface a discussion of “indifferent” globality, as seen in the agency of microbes and smart machines, and populism as an exemplar of tensions in local-global entanglements, with a brief excursus on the what exercises current scholarship on the global. The whole is written with Protosociology’s 30 year engagement with hard questions in social theory in mind.
