Traditional Cultures Report

 

*Purpose Of The Assignment*
Culture change seems inevitable due to globalization, accelerated modernization affecting all parts of the world. Modernization is a process by which traditional, nonindustrial societies acquire characteristics of technologically complex societies. Either through voluntary or forced acculturation. Because culture is integrated, change in one area, such as subsistence strategy, affects all aspects of that culture. Accordingly, traditional cultures find themselves facing loss of customs and core values, leaving many people unsettled, disoriented and demoralized And, in fact, many feel that the benefits of technology outweigh culture loss.

Organize your paper to tell the story of one culture facing culture change due to globalization, immigration or war and political unrest. After you have told the story, explain how you feel about the change that has taken place – good or bad – and how the world should deal with the loss of traditional cultures – are we the better or the worse?
