Globalization can sometimes seem like an abstract concept, an unconscious aspect of our everyday existence.

What impact does it have on the reality of our daily lives?

How does it shape our experiences, perspectives and identities?

Narratives of Globalization explores how a range of key ideas in the study of globalization are made manifest in the lives of people all over the world.

Each chapter explores a key theme in globalization studies that is explored through a narrative that draws on the contributors own personal experience.

It draws together a collection of experiences from across the globe including Chinese migration to Australia, the influence of the internet on education and the popularity of K-pop.

These personal perspectives on culture, identity, development and politics attempt to better understand contemporary issues within the global frame and illustrate how ordinary people can engage with and influence processes of globalization.
