John Tomlinson The agenda before us in this colloquium is both an extensive and a tough one. Although our immediate focus is European culture, as we are all aware, this can only be understood in the context of more general questions about the nature of modern, increasingly globalized cultures. Our deliberations therefore necessarily range across : the issue of the constitution of cultural identity, the question of cultural universalism and human rights, the way to address religious fundamentalism, how to account for new ways of social interaction, the impact of globalization, the new information culture and knowledge-based society. Frankly, I would strongly advise my postgraduate students against tackling anything more than fraction of this agenda in the three or four years of study for a PhD - and we have a little under two days. But the reason why we need to take on board this almost impossible agenda is because all of these issues interconnect in important ways.
Professor John Tomlinson produces world-leading research on the cultural dimensions of the globalization process. His research findings influence policy at an international level, shape professional and public understanding of the consequences of globalization and encourage public debate about international cooperation. He has shaped cultural practitioners' understanding of the cultural consequences of globalization through presentations to cultural bodies such as Impakt Arts Festival Utrecht and the Royal Institute of British Architects RIBA.
Tomlinson has conducted work on the cultural dimensions of globalization at Nottingham Trent University since The first major outcome was the publication of the influential Globalization and Culture Polity Press, This was the first study to attempt to interpret the cultural dimensions — as distinct from the economic, technological and political dimensions — of the globalization process. Situating itself theoretically at the interface between sociology and cultural analysis, the book and the body of work which followed analyses and interprets both the impact of globalization in the sphere of culture, and the role of culture in the constitution of the dynamics of globalization itself.
The focus of this case study is on three main areas. In each of these areas the research has broad relevance for a range of end users in the cultural and political spheres. Vertovec and R. Cohen, eds, Conceiving Cosmopolitanism.
Oxford: Oxford University Press: p. Held and A. Cambridge: Polity, pp. This work had a significant presence in earlier RAE submissions and work in the field of globalization was judged to be world-leading in the RAE. His reputation for world-leading research is also corroborated by citation data: for example, Globalization and Culture has over citations on Google Scholar.
The same book has been reprinted 6 times , , , , and Because Tomlinson's research generated interest beyond the academy, he was invited to give many public talks and to offer expert presentations and consultations to high-level international bodies. In this way, he provided conceptual and contextual analysis of cultural policy related issues to inform the thinking and decision-making of international bodies.
From , these impact activities have continued. Tomlinson's research underpinned conclusions drawn by UNESCO on cultural diversity in a changing media landscape in Chapter 5 Communication and Cultural Contexts and informed UNESCO's recommendations on supporting the production and distribution of media that respond to the needs of local contexts 2.
An example of this direct influence can be found in Section 1. Facilitating responsible corporate action. The findings of contributors to the book have been used by the Foundation to produce strategies for responsible corporate action to meet the demands of a globalized world. Encouraging international cooperation in development.
Tomlinson was commissioned to write an article — "Supermarkt der Weltdeutungen: Der Austausch zwischen den Kulturen wirkt zugleich befreiend und verunsichernd' Supermarket of Interpretations about the World: Cultural Exchange as Liberation and Uncertainty — for the German magazine Welt-Sichten World View.
This new magazine for global development and ecumenical cooperation is published by a coalition of church-based charities in Germany and Switzerland 5. A revised version of the article was published in the page Eine Welt Taschenkalender published by Volker Harms Ltd, a diary-calender that aims to engage the public and provoke discussion 6.
These publications are further evidence of Tomlinson's impact on public debate and understanding. Promoting global artistic expression. The impact was in providing an analytical framework within which artists from across Europe could reflect on their practices in the context of the cultural condition of global immediacy. A paper on Globalization and Acceleration in Nottingham Contemporary Gallery's Uneven Geographies Lecture Series May 26 provided members of the local community with a cultural-analytical narrative within which to interpret the artworks in a major international exhibition.

The process of globalisation is frequently assumed to have negative implications for developing societies. Certainly in political-economy terms it is a process which distributes its benefits and its risks unevenly, maintaining the familiar patterns of global advantage and disadvantage. However the cultural implications of globalisation seem likely to be more complex. This study first explores the suspicion that cultural globalisation is merely the extension of Western cultural power and finds reasons to doubt this.

Globalization - Approaches to Diversity. Transnational flows of people, financial resources, goods, information and culture have recently been increasing in a drastic way and have profoundly transformed the world Ritzer and Malone, This phenomenon has been labeled globalization.
Cultural homogenization is an aspect of cultural globalization ,  listed as one of its main characteristics,  and refers to the reduction in cultural diversity  through the popularization and diffusion of a wide array of cultural symbols—not only physical objects but customs, ideas and values. Cultural homogenization can impact national identity and culture, which would be "eroded by the impact of global cultural industries and multinational media". Some scholars like Arjun Appadurai note that "the central problem of today's global interaction [is] the tension between cultural homogenization and cultural heterogenization". John Tomlinson says, "It is one thing to say that cultural diversity is being destroyed, quite another to lament the fact.
In recent decades, many regions of the world have seen a marked increase in economic development due to the process of globalization as states have opened their borders to international markets, allowing for multinational corporations, non-governmental organizations, and foreign state actors to have an increasingly powerful influence over traditionally domestic matters. With this development and the advance of technology, media and communication have had the ability to reach regions of the world, which may have never been exposed to other cultures in the past. Undoubtedly, this has had an impact on the culture and societal norms of countless cultures as dominant world cultures expand their realm of influence through such media as TV programs and the internet.

Неожиданно он оказался на открытом воздухе, по-прежнему сидя на веспе, несущейся по травяному газону. Задняя стенка ангара бесследно исчезла прямо перед. Такси все еще двигалось рядом, тоже въехав на газон. Огромный лист гофрированного металла слетел с капота автомобиля и пролетел прямо у него над головой.

Женщина, наклонившаяся над умирающим, очевидно, услышала полицейскую сирену: она нервно оглянулась и потянула тучного господина за рукав, как бы торопя. Оба поспешили уйти. Камера снова показала Танкадо, его руку, упавшую на бездыханную грудь.
