As a mature student approaching my first year at University to take a degree
in Sociology and Education I would very much appreciate the opportunity to
exchange thoughts with anyone who has the time to do so. My current topic
is globalization. When it arrives by snail mail I shall also be taking a
look at Giddens Sociology. I have studied Open Universitys DD100 Social
Science course and am using their material to prepare for September.
I am currently comparing definitions and attitudes towards the term
globalization and have more questions than answers. Forgive me if these are
Wiseman describes globalization as a slippery, dangerous and important
buzzword of the latter part of the 20th century.
Giddens describes the world as a runaway world all terms which seem
emotive. Mulgan homes in on a negative kind of globalization through the
unity shared over pollution and environmental matters. I dont have a good
background in British History and am finding it difficult to compare the
advancements in communications over recent decades with say the development
of the phone and TV.
I dont as yet have any advice on how to prepare for the education part of
my degree any suggestions?
Your responses on or off list would be greatly appreciated
