Arjun Appadurai-“Disjunction (idea of separation- culture is not bound to a place it
is moving)” or scapes (scapes are doing something that culture as a concept not
doing--- assumptions of culture? Culture is something that is bounded or
unchanging whereas scapes can be changing and the perspectives also change,
perspective of landscape depends on where you are standing)

General assumptions:
Dissolving barriers like time and distance (time-space compression due to
technological progress)
Makes political border increasingly irrelevant (borderless world)---nation states
and borders do apply (people coming from Haiti to Dominican Republic)
Hybridization of cultures and increasing mixing of peoples
Intensification of connections between different parts of the world and out
increasing consciousness of this development
What do anthropologists study (part of a question):
What happens when “Globalization” lands
