Homogenization is when you mix too liquids say milk and water. The milk and water combine to form a uniform consistency.

Take water and oil. No matter how much you physically shake the mixture, the oil always floats back to the top. This mixture can not be homogenized.

Oh, yes you are right hakimi.

Homogenisation in culture would be be used to be describe the level of integration.

For instance a small, isolated village would have a homogenised population. That is they are the same because strangers are rare.

A cosmopolitan city would be heterogeneous.

I can't think of an example of homogenised culture in the broader example.

But basically, I guess it would mean you do not create a China town, when new immigrants arrive but marry the natives.
