Main Theme / Tema Central
The classic form of the nation-state is quickly disintegrating in favor of more fluid forms of cultural identity. Much of this is attributed to the impact of globalization. And in the wake of a hyper-connected global order, there is little doubt that cosmopolitanism is one the most relevant discourses of the coming century.
But how is this abstract notion grounded and operationalized? Who are the cosmopolitans? And what does cosmopolitanism look like?
This paper hopes to examine cosmopolitanism within the context of Silicon Valley by redefining what it means to be cosmopolitan, presenting the narratives of three individuals, and addressing the classist critique of cosmopolitanism.
