Festschrift by Palgrave Macmillan[edit]

The international publisher Palgrave Macmillan published in 2019 a Festschrift about Steger's work. The book "Revisiting the Global Imaginary. Theories, Ideologies, Subjectivities: Essays in Honor of Manfred Steger Editors: Chris Hudson, and Erin Wilson. Palgrave Macmillan say:

"Manfred B. Steger’s extensive body of work on globalization has made him one of the most influential scholars working in the field of global studies today. His conceptualization of the global imaginary is amongst the most significant developments in thinking about globalization of the last three decades. Revisiting the Global Imaginary pays tribute to Steger’s contribution to our intellectual history with essays on the evolution, ontological foundations and methodological approaches to the study of the global imaginary."[6]
