On September 30, Professor Spivak spoke to an overfull crowd for a conversation with graduate students at the University of Toronto.  The event was sponsored by the Initiative in New Configurations of Global Governance, Economy and Society at the Munk School of Global Affairs.  Directed by Ritu Birla CC ’87, GSAS ’99, the Initiative addresses the problematics of “figuring out the future” by moving beyond traditional analysis of inter-state relations, deploying deep site-based regional and local expertise to build big picture global analyses by working across the social sciences, humanities and policy.
