Diana Eck - Globalization & Religious Pluralism The first in a series of Gifford Lectures by Prof Diana Eck. Recorded April and May 2009 at The University of Edinburgh. In 1893, the World's Parliament of Religions in Chicago convened under the banner of universalism. How do pluralism and globalism today stand in contrast to the spirit of universalism, and signal a new reality? While the phenomenon of globalization clearly relates to economics and politics, to environmental and security concerns, how has it altered our religious consciousness, our religious life? What ethical questions are at the forefront of globalization? How have immigrants created new kinds of diasporas? How has the Internet destabilized borders of all kinds, including religious and national borders?

No Logo: Brands, Globalization & Resistance Featuring Naomi Klein. In the age of the brand, logos are everywhere. But why do some of the world's best-known brands find themselves on the wrong end of the spray paint can ï¿½ the targets of anti-corporate campaigns by activists and protestors? No Logo, based on the best-selling book by Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein, reveals the reasons behind the backlash against the increasing economic and cultural reach of multinational companies. ***yzing how brands like Nike,The Gap, and Tommy Hilfiger became revered symbols worldwide, Klein argues that globalization is a process whereby corporations discovered that profits lay not in making products (outsourced to low-wage workers in developing countries), but in creating branded identities people adopt in their lifestyles. Using hundreds of media examples, No Logo shows how the commercial takeover of public space, destruction of consumer choice, and replacement of real jobs with temporary work ï¿½ the dynamics of corporate globalization ï¿½ impact everyone, everywhere. It also draws attention to the democratic resistance arising globally to challenge the hegemony of brands.

What is Globalization? We found that most people are unaware of what globalization really is. We interviewed students on Auburn University's campus and local small businesses to see how globalization is affecting them.
Globalization: What Does It Really Mean? Globalization affects everyone in many ways. It affects the food we eat, the cars we drive, and the devices we use. Even though we are aware of globalization, what is it really? Other than knowing that globalization is in effect, how does it affect you? This is the point of our documentary. We went around Auburn University's campus asking different people of different age groups, races, and financial backgrounds about globalization. Our purpose was to see everyone's interpretation of globalization. We wanted to see the thread, if any, of similarity in everyone's answers.

Jerry Harris: Globalization of Capitalism Jerry Harris, Devry professor, author of The Dialectics of Globalization, explains the growing globalization of transnational capitalism replacing national sovereignty, at the Brecht Forum, November 14, 2008 Co-sponsor: Science & Society The Political Economy of Globalization US Hegemony or Transnational Capital? Jerry Harris Is globalization a project of US imperialism or an emerging transnational capitalist class? Harris will argue that while nationalism still plays a strong role in world affairs, particularly in the form of the US military/industrial complex, economic hegemony is now in the hands of transnational capital. The central historical process at work is the conflict between a descending form of capitalist accumulation based on national markets and the nation state and an ascending model of accumulation based on the transnationalization of finance and production. The contradiction between nationalism and globalization cuts across traditional party lines as the capitalist class struggles to develop a political project that can manage their growing crisis. Jerry Harris is a professor of history at DeVry University, Chicago and author of The Dialectics of Globalization, Political and Economic Conflict in a Transnational World. He is national secretary of the Global Studies Association and his articles are often featured in Science & Society, Race and Class and Das Argument. Professor Harris has spoken widely on globalization including lectures in London, Prague ...

Globalization Epic Video Do NOT USE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION It took me 3 hours to make it, and 27 different videos. I made this video for my Social Studies project. It is biased towards the benefits of Globalization, basically so that I could give my classmates some eye candy. In reality I do not advocate Globalization, and in reality many of these points aren't exactly true. It is just for a little excitement and fun for the class. The audio is Requiem for a Dream. I own no rights to it.
