Monday, September 5, 2016 Intro to International Studies - Lecture Notes I. What defines “Globalization”? - Making our very large world much smaller, “an intensification of worldwide social relations with link distant localities in such a wy that local happenings are shaped by events occurring many miles away.” • Globalization takes off in the late-80s, early-90s. Why is this? 1. The fall of the U.S.S.R 2. The technology boom in the sectors of personal communication, microchips, and the ability of ordinary people to access computers. II. Samples of Globalization - Remittance: The flow of money across international borders. - Telecommunications: the ability to talk to anybody around the globe. - Global Palate: We eat lots of different kinds of food from all varieties of cultures from around the world. III. “The Myth of Globalization” TED Talk - The global village is an oxymoron. - We are all different and communicate different within each of our respective cultures. - All cultures have various customs and different forms/ideas on working, communicating, and living. - Globalization is not the way most of us live our lives. • There are still very different and distinctive ways of operating in various corners of the world. • There is an obvious reliance on digital communication these days and this skews our views of the world and how we see ourselves as a “global community”. • We typically take English for granted as the lingua franca. - Culturally, we are NOT global. 1 Monday, September 5, 2016 - Globalization doesn't mean that we each automatically lose our sense of identity in our own culture, we don't actually sacrifice our difference to understand the world around us. - There is no consensus in the world today that we should make an effort to understand , not just learn about, other people’s culture as to improve how we communicate with each other. - There needs to be a push to make cultural intelligence a foundation to how we learn about the “Global Community”. • We need to teach more open minded-ness. - Model Minority Myth: All people from x minority are y. 2
