Study Guide:
Globalization by Harvey (1989):
o Globalization refers to “time-space compression”
Globalization by Robertson (1992):
o Globalization as a concept refers to both the compression
of the world and the intensification of consciousness of
the world as whole.
Three Dimensions of globalization:
Extensity: Stretching of social, political, and economic
activities across space.
Intensity: intensification, or growing magnitude of
interconnectedness, patterns of interactions, and flows.
Velocity: Speeding up of global interactions and
processes.
What are the implication of glocalization and grobalization
with regard to homogeneity or heterogeneity of cultures and
the ability of local communities to adapt and/or shape
globalization processes?
Glocalization (Robertson, 1994)
The interpenetration of the global and the local,
resulting in unique outcomes in different geographic
areas.

Glocalization is not creating the same homogenous state,
believes in increasing diversity (heterogenous).
Grobalization ( Ritzer, 2004)
Focusses on the imperialistic ambitions of nations,
corporation, organization and the like and their
desire, indeed need, to impose themselves on various
geographic areas
It involves interrelated processes of capitalism
expansion, like for example McDonalds.
Implications of Grobalization:
A. The world is growing increasingly similar
B. Individuals and groups seen as having little
ability to oppose the homogenizing forces of
globalization
C. Deterministic (rather than contingent) view of
globalization.
Ritzer believes corporations have more power than
the people, making it increasingly similar.
What drives the historical process of globalization according
to Hebron and Stack (2009)?
Globalization is a multiplayer process that involves more
than one or two dimensions of ‘say’ economic and culture.
It’s a historical process driven by the diffusion of
science, knowledge and innovations over time.
The exchange of goods, the development of trades routes,
the migration of people, and the spread of information
are all part and parcel of the historical process.
