Lecture outline  Scholte’s theory of globality: what is  globalization? What is  not  globalization?  Hirst and Thompson’s skeptic view of  globalization. Is there anything new about  globalization? And if so, does it mean that  what we experience today is  unprecedented?   Tomlinson: the cultural dimensions of  globalization. Are the cultural aspects of  globalization merely consequences of  economic globalization?

Jan Scholte and the rise of “globality”  What’s in a word? Can a definition have  political consequences? Globalization refers to a shift in the nature  of social space.    The spread of transplanetary – and more  particularly in recent times also  supraterritorial – connections between  people (Scholte, 61)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
