Park, Eunjung (Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, Korea)
This paper has the goal to show the transnational phenomena in the globalizing process in terms of migrant workers among three nations: the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and South Korea. I will classify the group of the migrant workers not only to demonstrate the cultural uniqueness based on the geo-political and environmental elements, but also to seize the commonality of the transnational progress in the globalization. By showing the statistical data and the representative examples of those migrant workers, I will define the meaning of the transnationalism and the matrix of global cultures in the examplified, so called, of the metropolitan cities such as New York, Los Angeles, London, Liverpool, Seoul, and a suburb city of An Sung.
