The Department of Sociology and Criminology, and the Department of Media, Culture and Creative Industries, in collaboration with the Jeremy Tunstall Global Media Research Centre, would like to invite you to attend the talk Globalization: compare 1990-2022, which will be delivered by Professor Jan Nederveen Pieterse on the 26th of October, 2022.
The talk will be chaired by Dr. Carolina Matos (Department of Media, Culture and the Creative Industries).
How do leading themes of 1990s social science—such as globalization, convergence, modernity, nationalism—fare thirty years later? How was ‘culture’ embedded in 1990s political economy and socioeconomic dynamics and what are interactions nowadays?
This talk will revisit an invited paper on Global Culture 1990-2020 in TCS. In revisiting this, a wide angle on transformation of a kind that short-term assessments lack, let’s add these questions: How do ‘culture wars’ of the 90s compare with the 2020s? Do 1990s litanies of hegemony lie behind us or, if we factor in 2022, does expansive authoritarianism make a comeback, not just in security but also in wider domains? Further information here.
