Abstract

Globalization is the all-pervasive constituent of contemporary living, especially where it is underwritten by colonial histories. Keyan Tomaselli argues that European interpretive frameworks have determined readings of African texts.1 Globalization needs to be understood through the discourse of capital, to understand how entire societies have become affected economically and socially by the dynamics of diversity in this new international division of labor.2 Globalization is the narrative of socialization that also helps us to locate the local within the global.
