The dialogical self is a very useful concept for the analysis of the multiple identifications of individuals in multicultural circumstances that are so characteristic of the contemporary era of globalisation. It complements the dynamic conception of culture that has emerged in anthropology in recent decades, while it has a number of advantages over the traditional concept of identity. This article discusses the development of the concept of culture in anthropology as well as the parallel debate about the notion of cultural identity in anthropology in order to demonstrate that the notion of the dialogical self to some extent overcomes the difficulties with the concept of identity in the analysis of the dialogical interaction between different
The task for Paul Smith's collected volume is to "help define a new kind of identity for cultural studies" (The Renewal of Cultural Studies. P.258) and to give answers to the question: "What can and should cultural studies be doing right now?. " (Ibid. P.258).
Culture changes and it means that culture influences the communication the same as personality influences it. It should be predicted how culture influences communication. “Social science research usually searches for universal generalizations and studies cultures objectively, with an “outsider’s” view; in this way, it is “etic.”” (J. N. Martin & T. K. Nakayama, 2010), (p.
Are Globalization and diversity antinomical? Since the beginning of globalization, wherever we travel in the world we have a great chance to find the products that we like to use or eat back home. This is surely a good way not to feel disoriented when going to visit another country but it does raise the question of the loss of cultural diversity. Due to its marketing power, American products are taking over the local tastes and the demands, pushing the establishment of a global culture reliant on technology and focused on consumerism while also creating an everyday dependency to English as international language.
CONCEPT OF GLOBALIZATION Globalization is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas and other aspects of culture. It is the process of growing and expanding to exist throughout the entire world. The tendency to move beyond domestic and national markets to other markets around the globe, thereby increasing the interconnectedness of different markets. Globalization not only leds to increasing international trade, but also in cultural exchange. Globalization is both boon and bane.
For as long as cultures have been meeting and clashing there has existed cultural exchange and a transference of cultural goods. This transfer is inevitable but when does this cultural exchange cross the threshold into cultural appropriation? While cultural appropriation has existed in many forms across time, in the modern world of globalization this phenomenon has become an issue ameliorated by the flow of information and how stretches from food and fashion to deeply cultural expression and traditions. As we move forward and aim to achieve a truly multicultural society, one must understand where lines are drawn and how to properly respect the cultural property of other groups. To begin this understanding, we would like to understand how an
Globalization took a large step after the war world 1and2 which occur several of changes in the following aspects: new territories, different allies grow, accessible transportation, raised the global economics and more trade of goods at a low price were transfer. What is Globalization? Globalization is a complicated topic, but you can see clearly its influence. Globalization is:" The worldwide movement toward economic, financial, trade, and communications integration. Globalization implies the opening of local and nationalistic perspectives to a broader outlook of an interconnected and interdependent world with free transfer of capital, goods, and services across national frontiers.
This means that countries with wide range of languages, cultures and knowledge have access to more varied ones than countries with the opposite features. So, such «rich» societies have more creativity, divergent thinking and cognitive flexibility. Furthermore, education leading to high levels of plurilingualism produces and increases not only local linguistic and cultural capital but also knowledge capital that will be exchangeable to other types of capital in the information society (Skutnabb-Kangas, 2002). The pros of diversity (considering migration) can be traced in the context of the labor force.
Furthermore, globalization can thus be seen as a vehicle by which the culture of the rest of the world can be communicated into every corner of the globe, in order the unite humankind. Proponents of the phenomenon argue that while it may cause the deterioration of certain groups of culture, globalization gives us the ability to learn more about different cultures, and allows us to choose which culture we want to identify as and become intrinsically part of. From another angle, some philosophers argue that the adaptation and gradual evolving of some cultures show their internal diversity, and how they are constantly changing. Therefore, they believe that cultures should not be preserved in a single state, but rather, allowed to continue changing naturally with time, and we should not force people to continue maintaining tradition if tradition is not something they want to maintain. On the other hand, those who argue for the preservation of the Native American culture cite the necessity of maintaining social values, religion, and customs; cultural norms that can create a sense of unity and community.
