Abstract

The current discourse of globalization is overwhelmingly centred upon
the interconnectedness, or connectivity, of the contemporary world; to
the great neglect of the issues of global culture and global
consciousness. With contemporary worldwide culture increasingly
characterized by such themes as astronomy, cosmology, space travel and
exploration, there is an increasing disjuncture between academic concern
with connectivity, on the one hand, and culture and consciousness of
the place of planet earth in the cosmos as a whole, on the other. This
book addresses this deficiency from a variety of closely related
perspectives, presenting studies of religion, science, sport,
international organizations, global resistance movements and migrations
and developments in East Asia. It brings together the latest theoretical
empirical work from scholars in the US, UK, Australia, Japan, China and
Israel on the significance of culture and global consciousness. As
such, Global Culture: Consciousness and Connectivity will be of great
interest to scholars across and beyond the social sciences working in
the areas of global studies, cultural studies, social theory, the
sociology of religion and related issues.
