yohei7: My basic understanding is that “cultural exchange” is somewhat mutual interaction of different cultures while “cultural imperialism” is mainly one-way enforcement of a culture to others. This does not necessarily mean that these two types of cultural relationship are easy to distinguish:… I agree with your definitions on cultural exchange and cultural imperialism. Both somewhat affect globalization. Hollywood has a strong influence on the whole world and other countries learn from each other through the many different interactions. Globalization has helped countries share information and learn from each other, and how Hollywood has had an impact on the world is quite interesting. Hollywood’s global influence has affected free trade with other countries around the world, by showing people how life is in America influences other countries people to learn more about America and creates an interest in American culture.
