Description

Globalization and Culture. Instructor: Prof. Anjali Gera Roy, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, IIT Kharagpur. Globalization is one of the most talked about words in the contemporary world and dominates discussions in the media, academics and everyday life. Cultural theorists have used the term to refer to political, economic, social and cultural transformations that have occurred in the last decade of the twentieth century

It appears that everyone on the planet is affected by globalization but not in the same way.Yet most people have only a fuzzy understanding of what globalization means because of the number of things it means to a wide variety of people. The different dimensions of globalization such as the rise of global capital and markets, new media and communication technologies, dissolution of political borders, and growth of consumerist culture cannot be seen in isolation from one another. But people tend to examine them separately or through the compartmentalized frames of different disciplines. (from nptel.ac.in)
