Abstract

Since the end of the last century a number of specific transformations have profoundly altered various aspects of our social experiences. Technological improvements in communications and transport, and a growing ‘complex connectivity’ (Tomlinson 1999) have modified our concept of local, belonging, and engagement. People are ‘more connected’ because their lives are increasingly affected by facts, news and commodities that originate in places far away from their context of daily life. Although distant, these places can be perceived as ‘routinely accessible, either representationally through communications technology or the mass media, or physically, through the expenditure of a relatively small amount of time (and, of course, of money) on a transatlantic flight’ (ibid.: 4).
