Exploring several dimensions of local, global and glocal using the generic conceptual framework Hodges's model
AbstractThis paper introduces Hodges’s model a conceptual framework as a means to explore the concept glocal and the more familiar terms local and global. Actual and speculative definitions of glocal are offered. Discussion will also deliberate on the compound meanings of these terms. The model's four knowledge (care) domains facilitate discussion of the physical, social, political and individual dimensions of local, global and glocal. The paper draws upon health, anthropology, history, science, informatics and geopolitics – especially the themes of globalization, literacy, information technology and communication (voice). The purpose is exploratory with additional resort to philosophical reflection.
