Introduction to Part VIII
Chapter 46: Cultural Imperialism
Chapter 47: Mapping Global Media Flow and Contra-Flow
It is common to speak of the “Americanization” of countries influenced by the U.S. Nonetheless, the materials in Module 5 suggest otherwise. As we have seen from the module notes, the video, and the readings on global cultural flows and counter-flows, in recent years many countries that were inundated with exports from US popular culture have resisted Americanization by adopting marketing techniques learned from the Americans to produce and export their own cultural content, sometimes even back to the United States.
Please answer the following question:
What evidence do you see of “Japanization,” “Africanization,” and similar constructs in your culture, that is, the borrowing and adaptation of cultural elements derived from other parts of the world? Your discussion can draw on your experience with any cultural forms – visual and performing arts, video games, comic books, concert music, television shows, even advertisements and fashion.
