Globalization, family and nation state: reframing 'family' in new times
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-20, 23:27 authored by Victoria CarringtonVictoria Carrington
Since the 1970s we have seen and experienced a shift in the processes and directions of capitalism. Regardless of disciplinary or ideological position, this is undeniable. In this paper I examine the implications of globalization for framing ‘family’. I begin by examining the impact of globalization on the contemporary nation state and associated conceptualizations of community. This move is necessary because family has been directly linked to notions of community and, beyond, to nation. I then argue that ‘new times’ require something other than traditional approaches to theorizing community and family, and conclude by proposing a new framing of family as sociospace.
