This is an accompanying Presi used in a presentation on Culture at Henderson State University, Arkadelphia, Arkansas. The topic examines the basic definition of culture. Building on its definition we consider how globalization has impacted the relationships between diverse cultures. Options for all modern society include seeking multiculturalism in which all cultures are viewed pluralistically as having unique benefits to overall society; or seeking protectionism and isolation from diverse relationships which are seen as a threat to ways unique of one of the cultures in contact. Factors that have moved our many global cultures into proximity with one another, and that have impacted our understanding of other people and traditions, include technology, politics, social needs, and the economy.
