Welcome! Since its inception in 1998, the Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition has contributed to research and teaching excellence about globalizing processes and how these come to bear upon our lives, our communities, and the environment in which we live.  Graduate students learn about these processes through the unique interdisciplinary MA in Globalization Studies, which provides students with the opportunity to think creatively about cultural, political, social and economic globalizing processes in the contemporary era, as well as through IGHC’s participation in the MSc in Global Health.

Institute members have achieved Canadian and international recognition in their respective areas of research, including conflict and security, environmental sustainability, labour and the economy, identity and religion, indigeneity, governance and citizenship, health and social policy, historical perspectives, and literature, media and popular culture.  Currently, working groups are actively engaged in the following areas of research: Globalization and Time, Austerity, Asian Studies, and Transnationalism and HIV/AIDS. The Institute also has a tradition of hosting Fulbright Fellows and of bringing to campus internationally recognized scholars working on various aspects of globalizing processes.
