“Everybody’s fascinated with the notion that there is a cause and effect,” claims notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, quoted in the Netflix original, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes (2019) – that we can “put our finger on it,” and reassuringly rationalise the genesis of the uniquely modern phenomenon of the American serial killer. But when there is “absolutely nothing” in the background of a serial murderer that would lead one to believe they were “capable of committing murder,” how do we begin to acclimatise ourselves to this violent defect of contemporary history?

The set of processes involved in bringing about global interconnectedness and the effect of this interconnectedness on human lives across the world is called globalization. Globalization impacts all spheres of life, including the political, economic and the cultural. However, they are closely related and hence a multidimensional approachis required to understand this complex phenomenon. This issue will focus on cultural globalization, as it is closest to the humanities and because the economic and political effects invariably impact the cultural too.

We welcome (inter)disciplinary contributions addressing the concepts’ entanglement on an individual, societal, and global level.
