Individual selves 2. Nation-state 3. World system of societies 4. Notion of a common humanity • This focus allows one to study interacting GLOBALIZATION: SOCIAL THEORY AND GLOBAL CULTURE (1992) – ROLAND ROBERTSON CON’T aspects of person’s self-identity and their relationship with national and global cultural influences. • For example, one’s self-identity is defined in relation to a nation, to interactions between societies and to humankind. • There’s tension between global and local influences on person’s experiences and actions. GLOBALIZATION: SOCIAL THEORY AND GLOBAL CULTURE (1992) – ROBERTSON CON’T • Robertson emphasizes “global unicity” – ways in which globalization & cultural exchange seem to be giving rise to global culture. • World is becoming dominated by Western cultural products and beliefs, e.g., Hollywood movies and U.S. pop music. • Is made possible by increasing connectivity of societies and by people’s awareness of world as single sociocultural entity. • Yet, local cultures are adopting and redefining any global cultural product to suit their particular needs, beliefs, and customs. • Robertson popularized term “glocalization”. NETWORKED WORLD • “Network society”, coined by U.S. sociologist Daniel Bell in 1970s, captures fact that societies have left behind Industrial Age and entered Information Age. • Is an interconnected global community of interests. -> access to the network or “space of flows” is no longer the preserve of a dominant social group. -> Anyone, anywhere can use telecommunications-based technology for any creative purpose NETWORKED WORLD CON’T “Society” used to mean “nation-state”, for the most part, but the world of relatively autonomous nationstates, with their own internally structured societies, is no longer.

ROBERT MICHELS (1976 – 1936) ON OLIGARCHY “Who says organization, says oligarchy.” – Michels • Held that bureaucracy is enemy of individual liberty. • Size and complexities of democracies require hierarchy – leadership with clear chain of command and separate from masses. • Increases efficiency, but concentrates power and endangers democracy with oligarchy (a few having rule over many). • Interests of elites of organizations become key focus instead of needs of the people.
