Abstract [sv]

Today we are living in a time were impulses from other places and cultures constantly grow and the contact over the boundary is getting bigger. We se satellites pictures over the world, we hear about worldwide ecological problems, we learn about other different lifestyles, we cock food that are inspired from the worlds many kitchens, we shop more and we can travel to different parts of the world. My problem was to find out how cultural phenomenon spreads to a greater extent global and how this transference take place, but also be able to se what factors that has a part in the cultural spread.

What I found with help from my literature study was that trough improved communication and transports has gained mobility in the world and people can take part off others culture.

The world is shrinking and this means that human beings identity is changing and this create a so-called hybrid mixture. Culture is what we human beings create. Culture can be seen as a community phenomenon for the most parts. In this and many others attentions culture seams to be growing, the culture meaning of what you can call identity or fellowship. But this meaning taking new forms. In traditional culture research it was called a long time that the culture was the expression for human belonging, the culture was ethnic, local or class based. This is in great extent still true for most of the time. But the relationship between the individual and the places were the live, the coherence the are a part in, and the social fellowship that they are included in (or pas trough) is changing. Culture in this consideration is something that stretches beyond the place and coherence. Just because of this there will be no other “culture” that will be taking over, for example a globalized. Its more relations and links between local, national and global that is established and negotiated in new way.

The globalization of today can be seen as a change of communication, technology, capital, work, markets, trade, production and distribution of goods and service and the mass movements of people has been personify to a “global” character, which means that there are tendencies to overstep national boundaries and change structures within cultures, states and the way to se the world. The effects of this have in popular name get to be called “a global village” or “one world”. The coming up effects of this is that it creates a so-called hybridize were different culture mix and eventually can create a global culture. Because of this transforms you experience that the world is shrinking, that valuations become more global and cultures become more integrated. All this considers to be built on globalization of modernity, the globalization is an extension of a global culture connection.

Economic, politics and culture has transforms and chance to create o more global world and the increase of global consequence are happening in faster speed. We can discern three related aspects of globalization. Economic globalization (a global economic) cultural globalization (a global culture) and political globalization (a political globalization). These three elements are connected to each other.

Also there is a culture globalization going on. The main direction of this flow is from the west world to east and south, or more specifics from USA to the rest of the world. Trough mass media, entertainment industry and commercial the American lifestyle is changing with for the most people unreachable and in environment aspects untenable consumption pattern to a universal ideal.
