Abstract

In recent years, European political leaders from Angela Merkel to David Cameron have discarded the term multiculturalism and now express scepticism, critique and even hostility towards multicultural ways of organising their societies. Yet they are unprepared to reverse the diversity existing in their states. These contradictory choices have different political consequences in the 11 European countries examined in this book: Belgium, Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Sweden and Turkey. The future of European liberalism is being played out as multicultural notions of belonging, inclusion, tolerance and the national home are brought into question.

Abstract

Tafeln und ähnliche Initiativen sammeln die systematisch anfallenden Lebensmittelüberschüsse der Überflussgesellschaft, um sie wohltätig zu verteilen. Sie fügen sich damit in einen transnationalen Trend, der eine lokale Charity-Initiative innerhalb von vier Jahrzehnten zu einem global vernetzten Phänomen expandieren ließ. Stephan Lorenz zeigt, dass die Flexibilisierung der Überflussgesellschaft sowohl soziale Ausgrenzung und Polarisierung als auch die Übernutzung von Ressourcen verstärkt. Seine empirische Analyse gewährt Einblicke in die Etablierung eines zivilgesellschaftlichen Engagements, das weniger ein Beitrag zur Überwindung der Probleme ist als vielmehr ein Symptom ihrer Verfestigung.

Abstract

This book discusses contemporary film in all the main countries of Southeast Asia, and the social practices and ideologies which films either represent or oppose. It shows how film acquires signification through cultural interpretation, and how film also serves as a site of contestations between social and political agents seeking to promote, challenge, or erase certain meanings, messages or ideas from public circulation. A unique feature of the book is that it focuses as much on films as it does on the societies from which these films emerge: it considers the reasons for film-makers taking the positions they take; the positions and counter-positions taken; the response of different communities; and the extent to which these interventions are connected to global flows of culture and capital.
