background image Global Society ­ Exam 1 Study Guide – Pt.1 Topic 1 – Globalization Defined and Explained Definitions: 1.          Sociology ­ The scientific study of human social life, groups, and societies with emphasis  on modern, industrialized systems ­ The scientific study of social behavior and human groups 2. Globalization  (Definitions – Friedman’s and Robertson’s) ­ Friedman:  The inexorable integration of market, nation­states, and  technologies to a degree never witnessed before in a way that is enabling 
individuals, corporations, and nation­states to reach around the world farther, 
faster, deeper, and cheaper than ever before ... the spread of free­market 
capitalism to virtually every country in the world
­ Robertson:  The compression of the world and the intensification of  consciousness of the world as a whole … concrete global interdependence and consciousness of the global whole in the 20 th  century 3.        Globality ­ The manner in which we have internalized the changes associated with  globalization so that those changes are incorporated into our emotions and our
ways of thinking about every day.
4.        Reflexivity ­ Reflection by humans on the consequences of their own and other’s actions  that may result in alterations of their behavior in response to new information 5.        Globalization ­ All the processes by which the peoples of the world are incorporated into a  single society, ‘global society’ 6.        Deterritorialization ­ State boundaries are more porous, no longer impeding movements of persons,  things, and ideas Know/Be able to identify, discuss, or explain: 1.            Focus of Sociology a)            Sociology 1
background image Global Society ­ Exam 1 Study Guide – Pt.1 Social relationships and their influences on people’s behavior; how  societies develop and change Study of people in groups Tools to understand far­reaching phenomena Help us understand why we, as individuals, act, react, and interact with our culture and society in the ways we do b)          Traditional sociology Included study of “other” [foreign] societies Viewed societies as separate entities  Concerned with a society’s internal structures and distinctive historical and cultural traditions 2.        The six components of globalization.  1)           Increasing Cultural Interactions and Flows the increase in cultural flows around the world in unprecedented  quantities and with great speed and intensity they occur because of the contact among different groups of people they’ve transformed our experience of cultural meanings and contact (the consequences are listed in question 3) 2)           Changing Concepts of Space and Time Basically indicates that as shared forces and exchanges structure our  lives, the world is becoming one place and one system.  The compression of the world results in the radical shift in our  understanding of place and time. Implications of this include: time and distance have dwindled in  significance, we accomplish more at greater speeds, territory has lost  its salience 3)           Commonality of Problems  We all live in a global risk society. We are increasingly aware of  different ways in which people all over the world believe that the  world is constantly under assault from natural disasters, violence, etc.  We are reminded of our common humanity and vulnerability Implications of this include: our actions affect others far away, global  problems require global solutions 4) Transnational actors and organizations  2
background image Global Society ­ Exam 1 Study Guide – Pt.1 Transnational is any institution, organization, group, manner of  thinking that involves “going beyond national boundaries and 
interests.”
The actors are human beings/individuals/institutions involved in  transnational behavior. International Government Organizations (usually established to solve  global problems) – autonomous, take on a life of their own International Non­Governmental Organizations – autonomous, often  work with IGOs on issues related to peace, labor organization etc; and  Others include: migrants, international tourists, professionals,  corporate personnel, etc. 3.        5 Consequences of our Transformed Culture and Contact 1) It’s become increasingly possible to take a cultural meaning or concept  and transport them from their original concept to another ­ e.g. Reggae and Dancehall in Japan  2) It’s become increasingly possible or even necessary to know about other  cultures to avoid the possibility of being excluded or tangible to possible  benefits ­ e.g. Making money from trade
­ e.g. Work opportunities from being multi­cultural
3) Electronic mass media and transportation affects all who’s around it ­ e.g. Mega­events like the Olympics and World Cup ­ e.g. Enhanced by Facebook, Instagram, etc. 4) We’re increasingly conscious that we live in a pluralist, multicultural  world
­ e.g. Via cuisine, music, religious practices, etc.
5) Western influences dominate ­ e.g. Especially the U.S. 4.        Four major aspects of globality and to what does each refer 1) Thinking of ourselves collectively while identifying with all humanity 2) End of one­way flows and the growth of multicultural awareness
3) Empowerment of self­aware social actors
4) Broadening of Identities 3
