Hybridization And Kazakh Ethnic Identity Formation, Aslihan Yeniceri Jan 2015

Hybridization And Kazakh Ethnic Identity Formation, Aslihan Yeniceri

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The immigrant integration process became popular in literature, while hybridization studies have gained little space. The primary goal is to determine the characteristics that are important in the formation of Kazakh identity in Turkey, with an emphasis on conclusions from findings of survey study with a sample of 93 (N=93) participants. The participants served as subjects in a study designed to investigate how hybrid identities are constructed. The results revealed that Kazakhs attached a new kind of hybrid identity with more emphasize on Turkic roots and they reconstructed their ethnic identity which is not a product of assimilated fragile ...

Navigation And Immersion Of The American Identity In A Foreign Culture To Emergence As A Culturally Relative Ambassador, Lee H. Rosen

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Abstract

Globalization is forcing many American college students to re-evaluate their perspective on foreign travel.

Connecting Strength Of State-Based Identity To Globalization: Case Studies Of Post-Soviet Estonia And Moldova, Rachael Anne Voas Jan 2011

Connecting Strength Of State-Based Identity To Globalization: Case Studies Of Post-Soviet Estonia And Moldova, Rachael Anne Voas

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This thesis is an exploratory look into the relationship between the strength of state- based identities and globalization. I argue that the differences in the state-based identity of Estonia and Moldova help explain their relative openness towards globalization. State-based identity strength is indicated by three factors: First, common culture - a solid collective memory that ties past, current, and future identity to the state. Second, language - indigenous language reinforces state-based identity, whereas vestiges of empire and a language foisted

on the people by outsiders indicates a weaker state-based identity. Thirdly, state policies - education, citizenship requirements, and public holidays are used to ...

The Effect Of Globalization On The United Nations, Joanna Awoniyi

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

In order to fill the gap between globalization and the future of the UN, this study examines the effects of Globalization on the United Nations. This is a two-part study that first examines the effect of globalization on the state and non-state actors; while the second part examines the impact globalization will have on UN power. 137 countries have been thoroughly examined between the years 1970-2006. The analysis finds that globalization affects the power transfer from states to the non-state actors and will eventually result in an increase in power for the UN and these effects are found to occur ...
