  • Negatives Of Globalisation

    Globalisation can be described as “a complex phenomenon; it is the interactive co-evolution of millions of technological, cultural, economic, social and environmental trends at all conceivable spatiotemporal scales.” (Rennen, Martens, 2003: 137). Globalisation is a process which involves the international movement of goods, services, money and ideas around the world. It has been argued that globalisation has many consequences, both positive and negative, for developing countries. This essay is going to argue the points in favour of it having a primarily negative effect on countries such as China and India which have received the backlash of global growth. This argument will focus on working conditions and inequality, environmental destruction,…

  • Avatar Globalisation

    often regarded as a home, however this is debatable in many respects. Through globalisation and literature, the representation of a home is not necessarily a ‘house’, as is a house is not necessarily a ‘home’. There are many representations of home within literary contexts, and through an examination of James Cameron’s 2009 highest grossing film of all time, Avatar, I will discuss how deterritorialisation identifies with the idea of home, and how the film exemplifies this idea. In addition, I…

  • The Impact Of Globalisation On China

    Over the years, globalisation has started to have a massive impact on countries, industries and businesses. Globalisation has affected the world and it is changing how countries do business, how technology is seen and social lifestyles. Globalisation was first employed in the Oxford dictionary in the 1930s, at the time the word was used by economists and social scientists.

  • Nationalism And Globalisation Essay

    In what ways does globalisation affect nationalism? 1. Introduction Broadly speaking, there are two schools of thought about the relationship between globalisation and nationalism. One school holds that globalisation points towards a “post-national, post-ethnic or post-racial future” – a new era of cosmopolitanism in which the atavistic nationalist passions of the 19th and 20th centuries come to seem positively quaint (Brubaker, 2009, p. 24). According to this reading, globalisation and…

I would like to define it here as the inter-exchange of ‘cultures’ whether that be social, economic or political aspects. When referring to the impact of globalisation on a country the influence on society, economy, politics and even security…

  • Functionalist View Of Globalisation

    Studying the complex nature of globalisation through the lens of paradigms may, to some, seem outdated. However, but by analysing globalisation this way, we see underlying structures that link seemingly unrelated aspects, thus allowing for a more robust understanding of the wider globalisation phenomena. The nature of these underlying structures is a point of ongoing contention for sociologists. Functionalists argue that although society is made up of individual actors making decisions for…

  • Cultural Trends In Globalisation

    Introduction Globalisation has been the trend of the world and influences everywhere we live. Many definitions of globalisation have been presented. Uz (2015:79) states that ‘Globalisation is worldwide interconnectedness’. Similarly, Albrow (as cited in Uz 1990:79) points out that it ‘refers to all those processes by which peoples of the world are incorporated into a single world society, global society’.
