What effect does language loss have on cultural identity?

  • The Branding of Culture

On the course learners consider the effects this might have on national and cultural identity and explore how some products are becoming decoupled from their culture of origin whilst others are localised. The course explores the way in which nations use “soft power” through spreading of cultural products and practices; to influence the behaviour of people across the globe. It also examines the idea of cultural imperialism and assesses the ways in which it is resisted.
