LM 111 Week 9

In todays lesson, Maria taught the class about globalisation. Within the globalisation there are many manifestations which are all together and not separate. Globalisation can be described as processes and relationships that are multidimensional, interdepend, uneven and not fair for all and contested. ‘Globalisation is also about our growing awareness of these depending connections and independence’ (Steger 2003: 13)

There are many different manifestations such as

  • Economy: This  consists of world trade of goods from other countries, services and also culture (food, clothes, goods).
  • People: This consists of intentional movement of people as tourists, refugees, guests workers and students.
  •  Culture industry: Global culture industries music, film, fashion – global circulation of signs , ideas, brands and lifestyle
  • ‘War on terror’: ‘The globalisation of the ‘war on terrorism’ has had many implications including the monitoring of citizen within nation states, the treatment of those seeking asylum from global conflict zones and the movement of people to and from countries more generally’ (Flew, 2005:178)

    1. Have I used 250 words? Y
    2. Have I used the required writing style, including first person reflection? N (where is your reflection?)
    3. Have I illustrated my understanding of key readings through my critical discussion of theories or concepts relevant to this week’s topic? OK
    4. Have I explained these concepts in my own words? N
    5. Have I included short quotes from the readings? Y
    6. Have I chosen examples from my own experience to illustrate? N
    7. Have I used Harvard in text referencing? (http://libweb.anglia.ac.uk/referencing/harvard.htm) for all academic readings and online sources used in my blog post? Y
    8. Have I mentioned discussions that took place during this week’s seminar? N
    9. Have I met the submission deadline? Y

    OVERALL – Although what you write in the post is relevant to the weekly topic (being a sumamry of points in the lecture) you do not follow the required style of reflecting in this one (Can be useful for revising on Globalisation though as it summarises the definition of globalisation and thus can be part of the answer to the relevant exam question) (B-)
