Abstract: This article discusses various issues related to the concept of “globalization” in post-colonial studies. Globalization proves to be an endless source of cultural surprise. One cannot understand globalization without understanding the structure of global power relations which flourishes in the twenty-first century as an economic, cultural and political legacy of Western imperialism. Post-colonial theory, and particularly the example of post-colonial literatures, can provide very clear models for understanding how local communities achieve agency under the pressure of global hegemony. One reason for addressing global culture in terms of a post-colonial model is to develop strategies for handling the relentless economic devastation which globalization wreaks on smaller economies. A common view among theorists in the developing world is that globalization is simply recolonization. There are many globalisms: sociological, economic, political, cultural, depending on the discipline from which the phenomenon is approached. But all of them may be addressed in terms of the model of power relations developed over several centuries of European imperialism.
