Joseph Kao 3/12/10 Professor Schalow Discussion Sheet #4 Today’s world is becoming linked together more as time goes by, with culture being a major aspect being globalized. In chapter five of Steger’s, “Globalization,” culture is described as a means of symbolic expression, mainly composed of language, music, and images. Steger mentions how the world is becoming culturally homogenized, which some people view as Americanization due to the large influence of western culture throughout the world. However, Steger also mentions another view that cultural globalization induces differences throughout the world. Nissim Kadosh Otmazgin, author of, “Japanese Popular Culture in East and Southeast Asia: Time for a Regional Paradigm?” would likely agree upon a concept in between the two extremes, known as hybridization, due to his views on the spread of Japanese pop culture. The standpoint that Steger mentions, defining globalization as Americanization, is contradicted by Otmazgin’s description of the unique spread of Japanese pop culture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
