GLOBALIZARION, IDENTITY AND POPULAR MUSIC
Along with globalization, the question of identity is without doubt one of the most
vigorously debated terms in the late 20
th
century social theory. Identity and globalization
are often paired together as twin organizing poles of the dialectics of the local and the
global in contemporary social theories (Giddens, 1990; Castells 1997; Bendle, 2002).
Many scholars pose identity in the center of their analyses of globalization because
identity has become problematic under the influence of globalization, and as a result,
cultural landscapes of class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, and nationality that gave us
firm points of identities are also fragmented. For example, the category ‘man’, ‘black’,
‘nation’ or ‘community’ are regarded as being more contingent and fragile and thus more
amenable to reconstitution than was previously thought possible. Identity becomes an
issue when it is in crisis, as Mercer puts, “when something assumed to be fixed, coherent
and stable is displaced by the experience of doubt and uncertainty” (Mercer, 1990: 43).
Hall (1996a) conceptualizes this ‘crisis of identity’ as the “set of double
displacements”—de-centering individuals both from their place in the social and cultural
world, and from themselves.
