Globalization of culture (e.g. Is Hollywood exporting American way of life? or Are there cultural differences in global competitiveness?”

(1) In the first part you discuss, compare and contrast different definitions of  globalization (with the focus on culture as one subject of globalization). Building on the sense you have made of different ideas about  cultural globalization you then proceed to
(2) identify a specific research question, the answer to which, you will argue, promises to further develop our existing knowledge about processes of globalization of culture (for example you could address a question  Is Hollywood exporting American way of life? or  Are there cultural differences in global competitiveness? ).
(3) Thirdly, you identify a minimum of 15 sources of information (e.g., from books, journals, databases, internet sites, mainstream media) which you judge would be of considerable helping researching the question or issue that you have identified.
(4) Finally, you attempt to synthesize your findings: is there a clear answer to your research question? Is there a consensus among the sources? If not, what are the prevailing answers (even if contradictory)?
Note: all sources used in your paper must be listed on a separate reference page/s (APA style).
