The categories of membership are:
Regular Members of the Centre are faculty members, independent Scholars, and postdoctoral scholars whose research touches on globalization and cultural studies and who are able to participate in an intellectual community of globalization researchers at the University of Manitoba.
Adjunct Scholars outside the University of Manitoba who are doing research on globalization and cultural studies and who wish to contribute to the intellectual community at the centre on a nonresidential basis are eligible to apply for Adjunct Scholar status. They are listed on the centre's website and receive all communications from the centre.
Visiting Scholars outside the University of Manitoba who are doing research on globalization and cultural studies and who wish to visit the centre for an extended period may apply for Visiting Scholar status. Acceptance of the application depends on how well the scholar's program of work will enrich the intellectual community at the University of Manitoba, evidence of financial support and on the availability of space and resources.
