Chapter 5c - Cultural Hybridity
Cultural hybridity is a process that forms new culture from two or more sets of influences. It occurs at different scales from the local to global. Indigenous Peoples have developed a blended cultural identity but this comes with challenges. They also influence the cultural identity of their dominant states. Mexico-USA cultural hybridism shows more of a balanced blending of cultures. Glocalization is a diversification business model used by TNCs to access new markets and creates an interesting example of consumer based cultural hybridity, in diverse sectors including film, music, food and transport.
Chapter 5b - Cultural Imperialism
Cultural imperialism can be defined in different ways, either focusing on the cultural power of one nation state over another or in terms of any powerful actor exerting cultural dominance over another. By examining cultural imperialism at various scales we can see its impact, sometimes positive and sometimes negative. We see it in our personal cultural interactions, government policy over Indigenous Peoples and through the power of TNCs at the global scale.
Chapter 5d - Cultural Landscape Changes
Urban landscapes are increasingly homogeneous. This is driven by market forces, urban planning and transportation. Cities are increasingly dominated by tall buildings, highways, and branded franchises and include downtown skyscrapers, suburban sprawl and strip mauls. Rapid population growth leads to a homogeny of slum development in developing countries and with limited value placed on heritage, historical buildings tend to be only found in European cities. To make themselves stand out some cities commission signature buildings and cultural plants.
Chapter 5a - The Global Spectrum of Culture and Diversity
Culture is influenced by the economic and social structure of place. Places vary in identity and demographics. Some cultures are more powerful and influential than others. US culture has massive global influence. Chinese and Russia culture present a rich history despite their ethnic diversity. At the national scale cultural identity can present significant regional differences based on ethnic differences and rural urban values. Cities also have distinct cultures based on economic activity. Global cities have become melting pots of multiculturalism
