Globalization—Ready or Not?

RIT Professor to Look at the Social Impact of Globalization

The increasing integration of the world economy comes with unexpected consequences. What is the social impact of globalization as political and economic forces rapidly change social systems and international alliances? Who benefits and who gets hurt in the process?

Scholar and author Robert Manning will present "A Critique of Neoliberalism: Equitable Development or Global Assembly Line?" as part of the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Caroline Werner Gannett Lecture Series, Globalization, Human Rights and Citizenship.

Manning, RIT’s Caroline Werner Gannett Professor and director of the Gannett lecture series, will give his presentation at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10, in Webb Auditorium of the James E. Booth Building. The lecture—free and open to the public—will be handicapped accessible and interpreted for the deaf.
