Globalization, Language, and Culture
Globalization is a complex phenomenon that has deep ties in the past movement of people and ideas around the world. While many people voice the fear that the power of Western culture, and in particular American culture, will overwhelm or even obliterate indigenous cultures and languages, this author argues that the impact of culture is never a one-way street. The interconnectedness of the modern world allows input from the United States to the rest of the world, and at the same time allows the movement of ideas and people from faraway countries to our shores.
