This chapter will focus on the more contemporary cultural globalization (2000s and onwards), where there is ‘no historical equivalent’ of the global reach and volume of cultural traffic and the globalization of both cultural and media geographies reinforce the existence of each other at an ever-intimate level. In particular, it will look into the concept of globalization in these two geographic subfields in terms of the social aspects of cultural production, consumption, dissemination, and value creation. By going over the historical trajectories leading up to the twenty-first century cultural globalization and its spatiotemporal and organizational characteristics, it examines the symbiotic relationship between culture, media, and established/emerging ‘global cities’ through selected case studies. Their ever-more dynamic interactions play a crucial role in the ‘imaging’ and ‘imagining’ of place and what it means to be a ‘community’.
