Globalisation: “Geography is History”?

26 Jan

Two great resources for discussion on globalisation.

1. Doreen Massey (2006) on ‘Is the world really shrinking?’. I recommend from 2:40 – 11:15 minutes. Offers a note-taking oppertunity for the positive and negative aspects of globalisation, and highlight debatable aspects. Access here: http://www.open2.net/freethinking/oulecture_2006.html

2. Saskia Sassen (2006) in a video for Teachers’ TV discusses her take on ‘What is globalisation?’ and affects and effects on and in London. She, like Massey above, highlights its unevan and unequal nature. I suggests 3:30 – 7:45 minutes. Access here: http://www.teachers.tv/videos/geography
