Cultural Imperialism & Global Perspective[1][edit]

Directions: Divide the work up between your group members and remember to cite your sources.

1) What is globalization? How does globalization effect culture?[edit]
2) Does U.S. cultural imperialism exist, and, if yes, in what ways?[edit]
3) If no, are we simply witnessing the development of a "global" culture that currently happens to be largely influenced by the United States?[edit]
4) Or, will increased nationalism maintain separate and distinct cultures, with no one culture being dominant?[edit]
