About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101612 - Identity and Belonging. Globalisation has become a key term in contemporary social science, and is much debated, in both popular and academic forums. The processes of globalisation appear to be creating not so much a single homogenous world culture, but rather, a world in which citizens participate in , and identify with, both global and local cultures. This unit traces the emergence of a global capitalism and through the use of case studies drawn from throughout the world, examines the links between global structures and local cultures. It aims to provide students with a broad understanding of global social science.
