Introduction to the Site

Hi all,

Welcome to Globalization Weekly, where I take a look into international affairs to analyze current events.  I started this website a few years back in 2013, but did not have much time to keep up with a website.  Now I do, and as part of that I also have some experience with digital media to make my content less academic and more engaging.  This website is being updated and upgraded for my research and interests.

Each week will be something new as well as a continuation of some key subjects.  I will draw upon both current issues and those I think are buried in the news or might otherwise be overlooked.    This is also my own analyses, so expect an inter-disciplinary approach to the topics.  Everything is more complicated than merely mono-perspectives, so expect an international issue being sized up with healthy doses of Anthropology, Economics, Business, and even Geography, as an example.  I want to see how things work and will be sharing that with you, Reader.

Lastly, this is my site and everything I write is my opinion based on what I have studied and found through sources.  I will make sure to have a Work Cited or in-text links for you to follow.  I also will make an effort to avoid paywall sources and others that might are not openly accessible either online or in texts and books.  All information will be present and accessible to someone with Internet and a library.

Now without further ado, welcome to Global Affairs Weekly!

Introduction

I’m using this blog for the purpose of analysis of the news and current events to draw out their connections.  Since this is one of those blogs that deals with current events, I plan on updating it weekly, based on news and events.  I’m not limiting it to any particular topic, such as economics and finance or political affairs and anthropological discoveries.  Rather I wish to draw in relevant threads for the reader on issues.  My blog is dedicated to globally relevant issues as much as domestic issues, so some weeks I might have a focus on American news while other weeks it will focus on other nations and transnational or global news stories. 

This is my public blog so I request that my readers do not post obscene materials, pick fights, spam my posts, or otherwise make a mess of the blog.  I appreciate new insights and leads from readers on topics, but no posting anything I mentioned earlier.  I welcome requests assuming they come with an introduction to the material. 

 

Enjoy my blog.
