PDF/EPUB Ulf Hannerz Æ Æ Transnational Connections: Culture, People, Places eBook

This work provides an account of culture in an age of globalization Ulf Hannerz argues that in an ever interconnected world national understandings of culture have become insufficient He explores the implications of boundary crossings and long distance cultural flows for established notions of the local community nation and modernity Hannerz not only engages with theoretical debates about culture and globalization but raises issues of how we think and live today His account of the experience of global culture encompasses a shouting match in a New York street about Salman Rushdie a papal visit to the Maya Indians; kung fu dancers in Nigeria and Rastafarians in Amsterdam; the nostalgia of foreign correspondents; and the surprising experiences of tourists in a world city or on a Borneo photo safari
