... Describing the seamless integration between the local and global; the comprehensive connectedness produced by travel, business, and communications; willingness and ability to think globally and act locally. ‘The concept of glocalization captures the dynamic, contingent, and two-way dialectic between the global and the local’ ( Swyngedouw (2004) Camb. Rev. Int. Affairs 17 ). Hence, Lindell (2009) Geografiska B 91, 2, 123 sees organizations across scales as the defining characteristic of the glocal. Parnreiter et al. (2005) Mitteilungen der...

... 2013 ). Something is glocal when it “characterizes both local and global considerations.” ( Robertson, 1995 , p. 30). In the glocal, the global is part of the local and the local is part of the global ( Robertson, 1994 , 1995 ). Glocalization thus allows us to think of the global and the local as coexisting within IE: it is always both a global idea that is looking for a local translation and a collection of localities and practices that are collectively pushing forward a global movement. Conceptualizing IE as a glocal phenomenon does justice to...

...seen new metaphors used to inform human geographers’ descriptive and explanatory endeavours. Dissenting from the ‘mosaic’ view evident a century ago, today’s human geographers prefer metaphors such as ‘circuits and switching points’ and ‘networks and nodes’. Places are seen as ‘glocal’, their past, present, and future the result of local action responding to, but also influencing much wider sets of relationships, rules, and processes. As Doreen Massey famously argued many years ago, we need a ‘global sense of place’ because our era is one of what Erik...

...discrete objects, conflationary approaches grant a single identity to what have traditionally been thought of as separate entities. Examples include Helstad and Møller’s ( 2013 ) argument for leadership as relational work and Brooks and Normore’s ( 2010 ) argument for glocal leadership literacies. This approach is uncommon and very difficult to sustain, as bringing together two previously separate entities is complex and explanation can easily default to their original separateness. Relational. Recently, but building on a range of scholarly...

...cultural feature developing in the Western world since the mid- 19th century —has come to be, between the late 20th and early 21st centuries , both a global expression of this awareness and a sum of glocal political movements demanding attention and action in the face of these problems and the conflicts associated with them. This global/glocal character of environmentalism helps to explain the regional features of its expressions. The European concern with eco-efficiency, for instance, and that of North America with conservation and the control of...

...materialist literary theory, and postcolonial literary theory (among others). A regional focus now requires a criticism aware that its objects of attention are contingent, with historically specific relations to place, history, politics, and aware that the local is now also the “glocal,” whereby pressures from globalization for institutional change and social adaptation encounter pressures to preserve local identity and customs. These tensions are especially apparent in sites of cultural diversity and economic inequality. What this complex of intrinsic...

...and human phenomena, the expression “transnational” has acquired an unprecedented intensity. It embodies some of the crucial tensions that people are exposed to and sometimes experience as threats that elicit violent responses. These tensions could exist between their local and “glocal” belonging, between identity and interdependency, between the need to distinguish oneself from others and the awareness of sharing the same world and carrying a common responsibility, between security and exposure, between wealth and poverty, and so on. However, transnational...

...greater attention to the competing forces in EE message production and reception, especially in media-saturated environments where audiences have access to a plethora of counterarguments. Overall, these findings clearly point to the sheer versatility of EE practice as being truly glocal ( Hemer & Tufte, 2005 ). The findings related to channel and genre indicate that interactive communication technologies (ICTs) have changed the communication landscape across the globe. These new technologies harness the vast reach of traditional mass media while allowing...

...and the speed of the circulation of images, texts, arguments, news, and ideas that it affords, feeds such flows connected to sexual identities, practices, tastes, orientations, rights, and regulations. The mainstreaming of sex, as diagnosed by Attwood, is hence markedly “glocal” in its resonances. As such, it fuels frictions, clashes, and incongruities between global flows and local cultures, norms, and conventions embedded in religious, moral, and political principles. Contra advances made in the rights of sexual minorities in many Western countries,...
