Example text

However, Williams’ ideas about cultural studies, though often enlightening, are also sometimes con fusing. Thus in some of his writings he focuses on how cultural production takes place in modern society, and who controls it. In the modern world, ownership and control of the ‘media’ take two main forms—private ownership of newspapers and of more modern and even more powerful means of mass communication, notably television, on the one hand, and collective, usually State or Party, ownership and/or control, on the other.

The globalised culture that is currently emerging is not a global culture in any utopian sense. It is not a culture that has arisen out of the mutual experiences and needs of all of humanity. It does not draw equally on the world’s diverse cultural traditions. It is neither inclusive, balanced, nor, in the best sense, synthesising. Rather, globalised culture is the installation, world-wide, of one particular culture born out of one particular, privileged historical experience. It is, in short, simply the global extension of Western culture.

More complex, contradictory patterns of winners and losers in the globalisation process may be emerging. Another important aspect of globalisation is, of course, the increasing level of social-cultural awareness of global interdependence. As Robertson puts it, globalisation ‘refers both to the compression of the world and the intensification of consciousness of the world as a whole’ (1992:8). Our sense of the rest of the world and of our connections with it are ‘brought home to us’ routinely via globalising media and communications technology.
