Title: Cultural Citizenship and the Challenges of Globalization
Editor(s): Wenche Ommundsen, Michael Leach and Andrew Vandenberg
Publish Date: June 2010
|Citizenship, culture and globalization, as recent history demonstrates, can be an explosive mix, with the capacity to unsettle not only traditional modes of belonging, but also established ways of thinking about being and belonging. Destabilizing boundaries between culture and state, self and other, sameness and difference, cultural citizenship in the global era brings out tensions between individual and group rights, between human and cultural rights, between principles of universalism and respect for cultural difference, and between the authority of the state, the rule of international law, and the seemingly lawless operations of transnational capital.|
From a range of disciplinary perspectives, the essays in this book engage with the challenges posed by globalization to notions of civic, social and cultural belonging, with the transformative nature of global forces, and with the tensions and contradictions that arise out of the simultaneous pull of cultural homogenization and push for cultural differentiation.
