Is globalisation leading to a single, homogenised global society and culture? What

Is globalisation leading to a single, homogenised global society and culture? What does the idea of multiple modernities contribute to debate on this question?

2 parts to the question, make sure you answer both:
– conceptual/theoretical:
o present the idea that globalisation is leading to social and cultural homogenization (eg both Marxist and neo-liberal accounts)
o outline the multiple modernities perspective’s view on the issue (and its view of globalisation, compatible with some theories, eg Robertson)
o Inglis, Turner and Khondker both have stuff on both these points
– empirical:
o provide empirical evidence to support your argument. 
o This should draw on material presented in the case studies of multiple modernities we have covered in the unit. 
o Evidence of homogenisation may also be relevant to your argument.
– Main argument: 
o Civilisational analysis and the perspective of multiple modernities, and globalisation theory seem to have contradictory views of the contemporary world, but if we understand globalisation properly, they are compatible
