The value to an evolutionary view to globalizing Informatics research: One anthropologist’s perspective


This volume and the conference on which it is based are/were organized around a two-part intellectual intervention in the study of globalization. The theoretical part of the intervention is to advocate for analyzing globalization as an evolutionary process; the methodological part is that, so understood, globalization is a process susceptible to formal modeling. The point of intervening is to affect the ways that scholars frame globalization issues, and the scholarship regarding these issues, are pursued.
