Professor John Tomlinson produces world-leading research on the cultural dimensions of the globalization process. His research findings influence policy at an international level, shape professional and public understanding of the consequences of globalization and encourage public debate about international cooperation.
In recent decades, many regions of the world have seen a marked increase in economic development due to the process of globalization as states have opened their borders to international markets, allowing for multinational corporations, non-governmental organizations, and foreign state actors to have an increasingly powerful influence over traditionally domestic matters. With this development and the advance of technology, media and communication have had the ability to reach regions of the world, which may have never been exposed to other cultures in the past. Undoubtedly, this has had an impact on the culture and societal norms of countless cultures as dominant world cultures expand their realm of influence through such media as TV programs and the internet. Furthermore, it will examine whether this trend of globalization will advance the creation of a singular global culture. The debate of whether the erosion between traditional culture and the strengthening of a global culture is of particular concern as within recent history many groups, who are often termed minorities to the more dominant cultures, are concerned with the loss of their individuality, way of life, and even their national sovereignty. To pro or hyper-globalists, this loss of sovereignty is viewed as progress as the process of cultural homogenization will inevitably be responsible for the decay of conflict among differing cultural groups. As most agree that media and communication technologies have been a predominant factor in influencing culture, not all theorists agree with how media influences culture.
Globalization - Approaches to Diversity. Transnational flows of people, financial resources, goods, information and culture have recently been increasing in a drastic way and have profoundly transformed the world Ritzer and Malone, This phenomenon has been labeled globalization. As a result, a great deal of debate and discussion, even controversy Bird and Stevens, has taken place about globalization in various disciplines from different angles. In fact, there seems to be a controversy in regards to globalization and the contradictory meanings associated with it. In corollary, research has not been successful in grasping the globalization phenomenon in its entirety.

Cultural homogenization is an aspect of cultural globalization ,  listed as one of its main characteristics,  and refers to the reduction in cultural diversity  through the popularization and diffusion of a wide array of cultural symbols—not only physical objects but customs, ideas and values. Cultural homogenization can impact national identity and culture, which would be "eroded by the impact of global cultural industries and multinational media". Some scholars like Arjun Appadurai note that "the central problem of today's global interaction [is] the tension between cultural homogenization and cultural heterogenization". John Tomlinson says, "It is one thing to say that cultural diversity is being destroyed, quite another to lament the fact. Tomlinson argues that globalization leads to homogenization. Appadurai, acknowledging the concept of homogenization, still provides an alternative argument of indigenization. He says that " the homogenization argument subspeciates into either an argument about Americanization or an argument about commoditization
John Tomlinson The agenda before us in this colloquium is both an extensive and a tough one. Although our immediate focus is European culture, as we are all aware, this can only be understood in the context of more general questions about the nature of modern, increasingly globalized cultures. Our deliberations therefore necessarily range across : the issue of the constitution of cultural identity, the question of cultural universalism and human rights, the way to address religious fundamentalism, how to account for new ways of social interaction, the impact of globalization, the new information culture and knowledge-based society. Frankly, I would strongly advise my postgraduate students against tackling anything more than fraction of this agenda in the three or four years of study for a PhD - and we have a little under two days. But the reason why we need to take on board this almost impossible agenda is because all of these issues interconnect in important ways.
The process of globalisation is frequently assumed to have negative implications for developing societies. Certainly in political-economy terms it is a process which distributes its benefits and its risks unevenly, maintaining the familiar patterns of global advantage and disadvantage. However the cultural implications of globalisation seem likely to be more complex. This study first explores the suspicion that cultural globalisation is merely the extension of Western cultural power and finds reasons to doubt this.

Но, директор, - возразила Сьюзан, - это не имеет смысла. Если Танкадо не понял, что стал жертвой убийства, зачем ему было отдавать ключ. - Согласен, - сказал Джабба.
ГЛАВА 79 Стратмор спрятал пейджер в карман и, посмотрев в сторону Третьего узла, протянул руку, чтобы вести Сьюзан за. - Пошли. Но их пальцы не встретились.
Сьюзан закрыла глаза, но ее снова вывел из забытья голос Дэвида. Беги, Сьюзан. Открой дверцу. Спасайся. Она открыла глаза, словно надеясь увидеть его лицо, его лучистые зеленые глаза и задорную улыбку, и вновь перед ней всплыли буквы от А до Z.
Он сказал, что в прошлом году сам установил переключатель. Личный помощник директора отказывался верить ее словам. - Никогда не слышал об. - Никто не слышал. Это было сделано тайно. - Мидж, - сказал Бринкерхофф, - Джабба просто помешан на безопасности ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Он ни за что не установил бы переключатель, позволяющий действовать в обход… - Стратмор заставил .
