Friday, October 14, 2016 INTS 201 Reading Notes Chapter 18 of Thinking Globally - “One of the most dramatic aspects of the global era is the extent to which electronic communications have made it possible for virtually everyone to be in touch with everyone else.” (pg. 352) - In this new globalizing age, technology has proven to be a driving force of change for the entire world and how it functions. The world is now connected and linked together. - “Though Internet use is found everywhere, it is not found everywhere equally. There is what has come to be known as a ‘digital divide’ within and among countries regarding the percentage of the population that has access to computers and the Internet.” (pg. 353) - The Internet is not only used around the world, it is also controlled by certain governments in countries like China. What people are allowed to search is monitored and limited. - There are also many examples of how the Internet and communications through it affect countries’ politics. The U.S. had military secrets revealed on the Internet that lead to protests and Egypt trying to shut down the use of the Internet in the country. In countries like Iran and North Korea, the censorship of the Internet is used to prevent political organization among the people. Global Culture and Media (Yudhishthir Raj Isar) - “The transmission of products and styles from dominant nations to the rest has visibly led to patterns of demand and consumption that in turn are underpinned by and endorse the cultural values, ideas, and practices of their dominant origin. In this manner, it is argued the integrity of many different dominated cultures has been subverted or at least strongly influenced by the dominant ones.” (pg. 357) - It is common that a dominant country controls the narrative of important events in the media. So it is reasonable to assume that people from different national, ethnic, and racial groups will interpret the things they see in the media differently. - “Culture does not transfer in a unilinear way. Movement between cultural areas always involves interpretation, translation, mutation, adaptation, and ‘indigenization’ 1 Friday, October 14, 2016 as the receiving culture brings its own cultural resources to bear, in dialectical fashion, on cultural imports.” (pg. 357) - “Rather than being an arena of centralized power, the world’s increasingly interconnected media environment is more and more the outcome of messy and complicated interactions.” (pg.358) - 2
