Sample Text:
Globalisation can simply refer to the interconnectedness of societies. This essay will discuss three sociological perspectives from which the social phenomena can be understood, including world-systems theory, the consequences of late modernity and the compression of the world. Each of these provides different but incomplete explanation of globalisation and therefore it is vital to combine the central arguments of all three perspectives for deriving broader understanding of globalisation. Immanuel Wallerstein introduces the world-systems theory in which globalisation can be understood as the development of ‘capitalist economic system’ (Scott & Marshall 2002).

University of Technology Sydney - 58103 - Ideas in History

Abstract Located in the inner-city suburb of Glebe, the Rozelle Tram Depot has long since been a hub of Sydney’s once-popular electric tram network. Defunct for the past five decades, the site has since been left to decay as a storage space and consequently became a popular site for vandals. However, over the years as the graffiti accumulated and the heavy vandalism transformed the derelict space, the site became a landmark for Sydney’s underground art scene. The aim of this paper is to critically examine the evolution of this urban landscape through the lenses of modernity and postmodernity. The appropriation of the heritage site as a canvas for contemporary street art demonstrates how these key ideas and their histories influence current social and cultural thought and practice. This re-contextualisation of its cultural significance reflects over time, a shift in the prevalence of the values of modernity to the reactionary ideas of post-modernity, holding relevance to our understanding of the site itself and more generally, the present moment in which we live. Key Words Modernity, postmodernity, urban decay, street art, heritage site, industrialisation
