We are accustomed to thinking of globalisation as a contemporary phenomenon due, on the one hand, to the strengthening of the interdependencies among states as a result of the creation of a new world market, and on the other hand, to the expansion and development of e-communication. Notwithstanding, the idea of globalisation does not belong to the contemporary world neither in terms of origin nor as a constituting process. This phenomenon has become fully manifest owing to major changes that have occurred in the modern era. Hence, globalisation would have been possible only after the era of the great geographical discoveries, manifesting itself early on through the expansion of values and of the Western living style to the new spaces. The main consequence of globalisation has been the creation of a cultural space characterised by diversity, fragmentation, and discontinuity. Thus globalisation produces a hybrid space where what is local and what is global make each other and interpenetrate. Hence, a hybrid culture is created where the modernist categories of authenticity, purity, or identity are denounced as arbitrary, which will lead to decontextualization and the combination of traditionally cultural forms.
