Center for Globalization Studies in an Urban World (GUW)

The Center for Globalization Studies in an Urban World is a center founded within Penn IUR that supports research and teaching on globalization—at Penn and beyond. It provides an annotated listing of current and accumulated data, projects-in-progress, and commentary— both published and unpublished— accompanied by methodological and theoretical discussion.

Launched in 2011, the Center is co-directed by Brian Spooner, Professor of Anthropology at Penn’s School of Arts and Sciences (SAS), and Mauro Guillen, Dr. Felix Zandman Professor in International Management and Director of the Lauder Institute for Management & International Studies at the Wharton School. The Center for Globalization Studies in an Urban World hosts a Faculty Forum on Globalization, which aims to bring together and generate discussion among numerous globalization-related researchers at the University of Pennsylvania.
