Is Globalization making every part of the world the same?
Transcript of Is Globalization making every part of the world the same?
“all those processes by which the peoples of the world are incorporated into a single society, global society“.
B. Andrew Heywood
“ Globalization is the emergence of a web of interconnectedness that means that our lives are increasingly shaped by events that occur, and decisions that are made, at a great distance from us, thus giving rise to 'supraterritorial' connections between people“. Heterogenization Lull (1995) - Heterogenization theory sees the effects of globalization as a complex set of interacting and often countervailing human, material, and symbolic flows that lead to diverse, heterogeneous cultural positionings and practices which persistently and variously modify established sectors of social, political, and cultural power.
Influenced by anthropology, field work, cultural studies, reception studies, active audience, and second generation globalization theorists. Homogenization Marxism
