Transcript of Cultural Exchange
Clothes are made from countries around the world
There are high-resolution computer images that allow the United States to send sketches of new clothes to manufacturing centers in the far East via satellite transmission networks.
European languages spread through colonization, to regions such as North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa.
Globalization has caused the rapid loss of local languages
Communication between very different countries is becoming more necessary in the global world.
English is usually the language of communication among countries in their global interactions.
English words have been adapted to the vocabulary of different languages
"meeting", "club", "hobby"...
Terms like “Chinglish", "Spanglish", etc.
Example: The new business discourse in Romania is expressed in a Romanian language which is strongly influenced by the English language (specifically the discourse of business in English)
Technology allows for quick responses to store requests for more clothes from any country.
Technology has helped to bring different religious values together and has made religion more available.
Economic success creates prosperous people and nations which allows for the growth and development of religion in other countries.
Religious values have been integrated into government and politics.
Ex. The Muslim Brotherhood was able to establish Mohamed Morsi as the first democratically-elected president of Egypt.
Different countries are forced to learn and understand other cultures and adopt their ideas in order to sell clothes in those cultures.
Being in the fashion industry forces different cultures to interact.
Companies have to be familiar with other languages in order to translate books for other cultures/countries.
Some movies are made to reflect different cultures (e.g. Aladdin, Mulan)
Popular movies will oftentimes require translations in order for it to be viewed in other countries.
Three of the top five music companies in the world are not U.S. owned.
A lot of the most popular TV shows in the U.S. are made in countries overseas.
Globalization is the fundamental cause for food culture to be transformed. This could lead to the abandoning of our own food and consume more foreign foods and then, deteriorate the culture and identity of particular ethnics.
Incorporation of traditions from other countries, which sometimes substitute the own traditions:
Example: Christmas traditions in Spain have changed. Before: Three Wise Men, now Santa Clause more popular, Christmas tree.
Why Does it Matter?
Each and every culture in the world is unique. This means that there are differing viewpoints and opinions about critical global issues, such as trade and politics. Global awareness and understanding about different cultures will help countries cooperate and collaborate to tackle global issues.
Pokemon is a great example of a product that started in one country and then expanded to the rest of the world.
When Pokemon was first introduced to American culture, names and language had to be translated.
In addition, aspects such as marketing and advertisement also had to be altered in order to appeal to different markets.
For example, in medicine, doctors and nurses have to understand different cultures so that their interaction with all patients will be positive.
