Common wisdom states that globalization assumes different forms – the term can be labelled in its plural form (“globalizations”) even if this term is contested. The globalisation of new electronic connections (as described by Castells in the early 2000s), the acceleration and massification of cultural diffusions (Appadurai 1990), the widescale hybridization and creolization of cultures between them (Garcia-Canclini 1995), (and next to this process, with “technosciences”), the rediscovery of the importance of “culture” in the context of globalization (or why “culture matters” more than ever in a highly mediated world, according to Tomlinson 1999).

Glocalism” is a peer-reviewed, open access and cross-disciplinary journal that aims at stimulating increasing awareness and knowledge around the new dynamics that characterise the glocal reality.
A journal on glocalism that corresponds with the very concept of being glocal and wants to be recognised in a cultural-academic context can only be available on-line.
So as to elicit as much on-line discussion as possible among academics, each edition of the journal will:
a) deal with a main subject and
b) be characterised by research essays (received after the call for papers and subjected to double-blind peer-review).
As “Glocalism” is a four-monthly journal, three issues will be published annually: at end-March, end-July, end-November. The publication of each issue is preceded by the publication of the Call for papers for the following monographic issue.
