Although distinct phenomena, technology in the digital age and globalization have advanced in tandem, bringing benefits to many population sectors at the expense of others. Chief among the losers in this scenario are indigenous cultural communities whose lives are not organized around the information age, and in some cases may not have fully entered or embraced the industrial age. Other communities are ‘up to date’ but have lost or are threatened with loss of their unique heritage or identity as forces of technology and globalization overwhelm them. This panel will examine the issues and discuss the remedies.
