Asian Studies 47 (2011) | Cultural Hybridities of the Philippines

As Pertierra (2010) puts it, “Understandings of the self, the family, religion and society are being reformulated as the world is transformed by forces of globalization, economic rationalization and capitalist consumption. The new media is both an agent of this transformation as well as a lifeline to earlier cultural understandings.” Lastly, this study was done in hopes of providing more insights into the ideas of hybridity, globalization, and self-construction.
