1586 Words7 Pages
Globalization is a convoluted phenomena experienced across the world which arises from economic, cultural, ethical, and political exchanges of resources and concepts resulting in a growing opportunity for people to explore and appreciate the diversity of world culture. Although globalization has resulted in positive outcomes, it is also important to shed light on the negative consequences as well because it is an essential aspect on the power of Globalization. In this paper, I strive to research the ways in which the conception of a world wide citizenship and belonging notion within Globalization has ardently affected notions of citizenship in a local context which ultimately lead to the production of new understandings of the self and the community through the usage of social media.
Analyzing the ethnography Social Media in Northern Chile by Nell Haynes, Modernity at Large: Cultural Dimensions of Globalization by Arjun Appadurai, and the article, Negotiating the Global and National: immigrant and Dominant-Culture Adolescents’ Vocabularies of Citizenship in a Transnational World by John p. Myers and Husam A. Zaman, I aim to understand the implications of language used in Globalization to justify systematic exploitation and comprehend who are the people benefiting and and those who are afflicted by this movement. I admit that Globalization has benefited the world in a myriad of forms that have achieved a connectedness among peoples, places, governments, and ideologies.
