This collection gives voice to the peoples and groups impacted by globalization as they seek to negotiate their identities, language use, and territorial boundaries within a larger global context. Rather than viewing globalization as one-dimensional (i.e., cultural, economic, or political), the approaches taken by the authors reflect a nuanced and multifaceted discussion of globalization that integrates all three perspectives. They explore identity, boundaries, language use, and other issues in the context of specific temporal and spatial contexts.

"This volume adds new spark and spice to how we perceive and conceive globalization in all its hues and nuance. Rather than examining language, identity, and boundary in broad and abstract cultural and discourse terms, the essays address these thematic topics through multiple disciplinary lenses in concrete places where globalization 'touches down.' The book will stand as a fresh and special contribution to globalization research." - Xiangming Chen, Dean and Director and Paul Raether Distinguished Professor of Sociology and International Studies, Center for Urban and Global Studies, Trinity College "Imagining Globalization offers an intriguing set of studies that take and explore the simultaneous global circulations of peoples, cultures, and languages.An impressive and innovative addition to any globalization bookshelf." - Wendy Griswold, Department of Sociology, Northwestern University"This volume offers a wide-ranging, open minded treatment of globalization and cultural trends. The approach is kaleidoscopic and thoroughly international with contributions from several continents, which makes for engaging reading." - Jan Nederveen Pieterse, Mellichamp Professor of Global Studies and Sociology, Global and International Studies Program, University of California, Santa Barbara "For students of globalization, this is one of the most inter-disciplinary, cosmopolitan, wide-ranging, and interesting collections to be published in recent years. Spanning a wide variety of topics, these original and well-written essays, thoughtfully juxtaposed under the key concepts of the title, expand our understanding of globalization and extend the ways it can be imagined. The essays will be of interest to a wide range of readers in both the humanities and the social sciences." - Anthony D. King, Emeritus Professor, Art History and Sociology, State University of New York at Binghamton; Author of Spaces of Global Cultures: Architecture Urbanism Identity
