(but see Smith, 2014c). This chapter completes the in-​depth studies of Part II. I have fathomed particular examples of inter-​civilisational engagement. My survey includes oceanic civilisations, the Oceanian civilisation, Latin American movements of political and cultural engagements and, finally, Japan’s exceptional encounter with the West and instances of political and cultural engagement that ensued. I have examined, to varying degrees in all cases, the four dimensions of inter-​ civilisational engagement to support my critical synthesis of the illuminating

The cultural construction of the British world

this global system, seek to frame their work in more comparative and contrastive studies. Chapters One and Two offer sweeping examinations of Britons’ cultural engagement with the indigenous peoples they encountered in their empire, through accounts that between them show markedly different attitudes toward colonial peoples. Philippa Levine’s chapter relates British representations of

controversial topic of the historical provenance of the precious items from overseas that now constitute the global collections in British museums. Among the arts researchers, curators and educators in that gathering, controversies about high and low culture, pushpin or poetry, the ancients and the moderns, were forgotten or unmentionable in the demonstration of an open-minded celebration of cultural engagement

Messages, threads and tensions

tensions and leaves you, the reader, with questions around teaching, learning, research, knowledge and community cultural engagement in the contemporary university to explore. Our discussion is not intended to be an exhaustive summary – and we ourselves do not always have the answers to our own questions – but rather to provide a sketchmap of query, reflection and meaning-making that interacts with the contributors’ ideas and endeavours, as well as with past and contemporary aesthetic, adult education, lifelong learning and higher education discourses. 175 Clover

Postcolonial hangovers
Mark Hampton

Filth (2006), reminded at least some readers of Britain’s history with Hong Kong. As we have seen, though, much of the British cultural engagement with Hong Kong had long since ceased to be distinctly ‘British’, well before the Handover. Even if newspapers routinely included the obligatory phrase ‘the former British colony’ in most stories about Hong Kong, it was not uncommon for commentators to treat

is a way to address some of the unequal patterns of cultural engagement. We discuss these in Chapter 4 . The social view of health allows the report to take in a wide range of health effects. It looks across the life course from birth to old age and death, and at place and community level effects. It has a broad view of culture, citing the theorists Raymond Williams 30 and Pierre Bourdieu 31 to establish an anthropological take on culture grounded in cultural engagement and experience. It is similar to Understanding the Value of Arts & Culture . Overall

Perspectives on civilisation in Latin America

The neglect of Latin America’s multi-​civilisational history was not only the sin of Europeans. 156 156 Debating civilisations The post-​revolutionary technocratic state in Mexico was fanatically positivist. Its investment in positivism left the state unreceptive to the many civilisational identities and influences that formed Mexico. His preference was cultural engagement. Reyes responded to the aftermath of the 1910 revolution with caution, asserting culture over violence and

totally unrepresentative of the patterns of cultural engagement in the working-class population. The remaining chapters explain these inequalities by analysing key points in the life course of a cultural worker. They also continue the themes we’ve introduced earlier in the book. Chapter 5 discusses the role of culture in our cultural workers’ childhoods. It shows the role of individualisation of inequalities, along with the problem of seemingly shared experiences. Many of the patterns of inequalities we’ve seen in production and consumption begin in childhood

In this objective, this pioneering scholarly volume aims to be suggestive rather than comprehensive or exhaustive, hoping to lay some necessary and valuable groundwork for future scholarship. While death is always, as Webster Goodwin and Bronfen rightly underscore, misrepresented, as it is ultimately unknowable ( 1993 : 19), cultural engagements with this complex and multifaceted subject that possesses aspects

reduction and a sense of wellbeing. In the UK, the AHRC report Understanding the Value of Arts and Culture (Crossick and Kaszynska, 2016 ) set out to explore how people benefited from cultural engagement. In line with other such research projects (Merli, 2002 ), the AHRC report focused largely on participatory arts to make the case that participation engendered feelings of wellbeing, empathy and reflection, as well as encouraging civic engagement. In an Irish context, John O’Hagan ( 2016 ) has also considered the societal benefits of state expenditure on the
