Summary/Abstract: The article explores the issue of the effects of globalization on the contemporary existence of the world. It considers the challenges that are faced by states and societies in their efforts to nurture their national culture under changing conditions. The author discusses theoretical approaches that are employed to explain the impacts of globalization: creolization, homogenization, hybridization and so forth. An analysis is presented on how the concept of the national culture transforms and the concept of national identity changes under conditions of globalization. The article also highlights the specificity of the nativist and national discourse. In this context, the challenges posed to the humanities’ discourses and opportunities to meet them are discussed.
