Technology Discourses in Globalization Debates: /ch Globalization, a key concept in our modern and postmodern discourse, is a highly contentious term that continues to generate endless debates about its formAuthor: Yasmin Ibrahim. In Ronald Robertson’s opinion globalization discourse with redefinition of float signifiers in social and political scopes has been necessitated necessary of verification in social science theories especial in sociology and political science. Globalization is a framework and a conceptual entrance for global order (Robertson, ).

The author found that sociocultural factors, including economic, cultural, organizational, and political ones, as well as the multilayered center-periphery in the globalization of science and technology, operate as forces that encourage international collaboration. 1 Globalization of Science and Technology “There is no national science just as there is no national multiplication table.” 1 Anton Chekhov () While globalization of science is by no means a new phenomenon, the 21st century science and technology (S&T) enterprise is more geographically distributed, more interconnected, and more dynamic than ever before.   Few would deny that processes of globalization have impacted education around the world in many important ways. Yet the term “globalization” is relatively new, and its meaning or nature, conceptualization, and impact remain essentially contested within the educational research community. There is no global consensus on the exact time period of its occurrence .
