Special Lecture by Prof. Ralph Pettman, the University of Melbourne
“What is Globalisation and Is There an 'Asian' Globalism as Well as a 'Euro-American' One?”

  On July 3rd 2012, Prof. Ralph Pettman, the University of Melbourne, delivered a special lecture entitled “What is Globalisation and Is There an 'Asian' Globalism as Well as a 'Euro-American' One?” at Meiji University’s Liberty Tower.

  Following an introduction by Prof. Etsuko Katsu, Vice-president of Meiji University, Prof. Pettman lectured on globalization, the definition of globalism, and recent trends in both European globalization and Asian globalization. Key themes of lecture centered on “the state,” “the market,” and “the civil self.” Prof. Pettman concluded by examining the Japanese context.

  After the lecture, Prof. Go Ito, Department of Political Science, provided his observations and commentary. This was followed by a Q&A session with the students. This lecture by a professor from a top university in Australia was a fruitful opportunity of academic exchange.

  It is our aim to continue to provide students and staff members with opportunities for learning and international academic exchange.
