Space, modernity, and the glocal book
The paradigm of classical (and some contemporary) social theory rests on an implicit identication of modernity with European modernity. The notion of glocal opens up conceptual possibilities that transcend the linear narrative of European modernity. This chapter addresses the relationship between modernity and glocalization, especially with regard to the spatial component inherent in the glocal (see Chapters 1 and 2). It argues that the glocal oers a means to capture important shifts in twenty rst-century social life with regard to issues of modernization and experiencing what it means to be modern.
