Chapter Summary

Contemporary work on the relationship between minority cultures and globalization, a relationship presented as a dialectical/dialogical one by Makere Stewart-Harawira in her book The New Imperial Order: Indigenous Responses to Globalization, offers new and hybrid perspectives on the challenges of globalization. Minority groups' living conditions and cultural evolution have been historically intertwined with the development of global order and have suffered from early to present phases of globalization. Globalization has created transcultural interfaces that have led to conflicts between communities. The conference, entitled "Globalizaton and Minority cultures: the role of so-called minority cultures in rethinking the future of modern societies", in France aimed at bringing to the forefront of global studies these new perspectives, theories, texts, practices that address the relationship between globalization and the experiences of cultural minorities worldwide and show both the real and potential influence minority knowledge can have on the world.

Keywords: France; globalization; Makere Stewart-Harawira; minority cultures
