A Declaração de Bolonha (1999) foi um marco no âmbito das políticas de Educação Superior da União Europeia na construção de um modelo educativo que tem assumido características internacionais. Os programas de intercâmbios, mobilidade de estudantes, professores e pessoal administrativo e a integração das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação à Educação têm fomentado novos desafios para as universidades. Um deles é incorporar a interculturalidade enquanto princípio educativo e comunicacional para dar conta da diversidade cultural de estudantes oriundos de diferentes países. Trata-se de um estudo de natureza bibliográfica e documental com o objetivo de mapear políticas e programas sobre o ensino superior e seu caráter transnacional. Além disso, evidenciam-se enunciados sobre o papel da União Europeia na difusão de uma cultura educativa intercultural, com tendência a constituir-se em uma nova ordem educativa mundial.; The Bologna Declaration (1999) was a milestone in the policies of Higher Education of the European Union, the construction of an educational model that has taken on international characteristics. The exchange programs, mobilizing students, teachers and administrative staff and the integration of Information and Communication Technologies for Education have fostered new challenges for universities. One is to incorporate intercultural...

O objetivo desta pesquisa é analisar como, ao longo das décadas de 1960 e 70, artistas ligados à canção engajada conceberam projetos de integração da América Latina por meio da canção, e como esses projetos resultaram no estabelecimento de uma série de conexões transnacionais. Neste período, os impactos da Guerra Fria tiveram como consequência um contexto político fortemente polarizado, o que afetou diretamente o campo cultural e, especialmente, o campo artístico. As experiências políticas comuns favoreceram as trocas de ideias e a intensa circulação de artistas por todo o continente, permitindo o estabelecimento de uma série de contatos e diálogos. Utilizando como fonte principal a discografia dos mais destacados artistas de cada país, o objetivo á analisar essa história de conexões transnacionais na canção engajada latino-americana focalizando três fases distintas: a) a primeira, entre 1963 e 1966, momento de formação e consolidação dos movimentos de nueva canción no Cone Sul, em que o engajamento se manifestou fundamentalmente por meio da crítica social; b) a segunda, entre 1967 e 1969, marcada pelos impactos do I Encuentro de la Canción Protesta, realizado em Cuba, que resultou no destaque de dois temas importantes: a revolução e o anti-imperialismo; c) a terceira...

Desde o princípio do século XX o pentecostalismo tem se apresentado como um movimento de renovação do cristianismo no Norte que se espalhou rapidamente ao Sul. Atualmente, o intercâmbio global e cultural estimula a diversificação das relações sociais internas dessa rama religiosa. Analisaremos nessa tese redes pessoais entre líderes pentecostais e carismáticos que conduzem organizações religiosas com menos de vinte mil membros. Através dessas redes baseadas em contato e influência, tais líderes compartilham imaginários religiosos e políticos específicos e podem expandir o escopo de suas atuações atravessando fronteiras nacionais. Examinaremos de que forma dois conjuntos de relações pessoais foram construídos, como estão conectados entre si como uma única rede, e como estão integrados a uma cena transnacional mais ampla de pregadores itinerantes globais. Cada uma dessas sub-redes tem uma trajetória relacionada pelos atores com as “ondas” descritas pelas histórias oficiais do pentecostalismo e do movimento carismático. Nossa pesquisa foi desenvolvida durante os anos 2008 e 2009 em três cidades ao Sul da América Latina: Buenos Aires (Argentina), Porto Alegre (Brasil) e Montevidéu (Uruguai).; Since the beginning of the 20th Century Pentecostalism has been presented as a Christianity renewal movement emerged in the North that quickly spread to the South.

O programa de mobilidade estudantil universitária ERASMUS é bem conhecido em toda a Europa, deslocando anualmente uns 250.000 alunos por 33 países. Os seus princípios de intercâmbio cultural, ensino na pluralidade e mobilidade transnacional fazem dele o programa bandeira dos ideais da União Europeia, com um alto grado de apreciação política e de popularidade geral. Aliás, as experiências de descobrimento pessoal, emancipação e abertura ao cosmopolitismo dos jovens no estrangeiro, constituem um ritual de passo incontornável na cultura juvenil dum determinado grupo social que vai ser caracterizado pelo seu “capital de mobilidade”. Os Erasmus, entre “migrantes estudantis” e “turistas juvenis” chegam entre a maravilha e a comoção num país diferente do seu, adaptam-se ou rejeitam os seus contextos iniciais, buscam novas vidas e finalmente “descobrem-se a sim mesmos” nesse novo lugar. O período Erasmus vai ser marcado pelos processos de trânsito das suas vidas para novas subjetividades, sempre definidas pelas estratégias de distinção e de diferenciação que procurarão respeito dos outros jovens num novo contexto. Neste artigo vamos conhecer os percursos vitais e as modalidades adaptativas de 6 estudantes estrangeiros em Lisboa segundo as suas próprias narrativas de deslocamento juvenil e adaptação urbana. The ERASMUS Programme to study abroad is well known throughout Europe...

This is the first study of the avant-garde Yiddish art theater movement, which flourished across five continents during the interwar period. From Warsaw to San Francisco, Buenos Aires to Winnipeg, Mexico City to Paris, and Johannesburg to Melbourne, the Yiddish art theaters were acclaimed by critics and popular with Jewish and non-Jewish spectators alike. These theaters had a significant impact on renowned theater practitioners around the world, who credited the Yiddish art theaters with inspiring their own artistic practice. In tracing how a small group of Yiddish theater artists developed a modernist theater movement with a global impact, my project provides a key and heretofore missing chapter in the history of the modern stage. I argue that the spirit of innovation that characterized the activities of the Yiddish art theaters and enabled them to become so influential was a direct product of the transnational nature of their movement. Operating in a Jewish cultural context unbounded by national borders, the success of these companies was propelled by a steady exchange of actors, directors, scenic designers, and critics across the world. Buoyed by a global audience base and unconfined by the geographical-linguistic borders that limited the national theaters of their neighbors...

xii, 463 p. : ill., music ; 28 cm.; Scholars in the social sciences have devoted considerable research to the relationship between the United States and Mexico, underscoring its crucial importance to the economic, political, social and cultural development of both countries. However, academics in the humanities and arts are just beginning to write the history of binational cultural relations. This study examines the musical nationalisms of both countries in the context of the binational relationship. A comparative analysis of Mexican and American musical nationalisms shows significant, yet largely unexplored, connections and parallels, elucidating the mechanisms through which foreign policy, culture, and music interact to create and mediate national and transnational identities.
The definition of a national identity and the development of cultural and political nationalism dominated much of the musical discourse of early twentieth century American and Mexican art music, as well as of popular music in the late part of the century. Intertwined with the discourse of musical nationalism in both countries are aesthetic and cultural issues emerging from two dichotomies that came to dominate the music of the twentieth century: the split between modernism and the Classical tradition...

Netzwerke spielen eine immer wichtigere Rolle als räumliche Struktur wirtschaftlicher Entwicklungsprozesse und auch als Form der Steuerung und Organisation politischer, unternehmerischer und sozialer Verflechtungen. Der Bedeutungszuwachs transnationaler Netzwerkstrukturen wurde erst durch die technologische Revolution im Bereich der Kommunikation und des Transportwesens ermöglicht. Im Hinblick auf die räumlichen Wirtschaftsstrukturen wurde er aber auch gefördert durch die Neudefinierung grundlegender raumordnerischer Ziele, die unter neoliberalem Vorzeichen in der Mehrzahl der Staaten keine räumlich ausgleichende Entwicklung mehr priorisieren, sondern die Steigerung der internationalen Wettbewerbsfähigkeit spezialisierter Cluster um deren Positionierung in den globalen Wirtschaftsnetzwerken zu sichern. Angesichts immer stärker auf die globale Ebene verlagerter politischer, wirtschaftlicher und gesellschaftlicher Verflechtungen verlieren die Nationalstaaten zunehmend die Steuerungsfähigkeit über Abläufe in ihrem eigenen Territorium. Parallel zu diesem Denationalisierungsprozess vergrößert sich die Stärke und Reichweite des Einflusses der subnationalen Ebene. Stadtverwaltungen organisieren sich zunehmend in transnationalen bis hin zu globalen Städtenetzwerken...

The doctoral dissertation “Waterbirth and Russian-American Exchange: From the Iron Curtain to Facebook” presents the social history of the Russian waterbirth movement, from the Cold War epoch to the present. One of the first ethnographies to examine Russian-American cultural exchange, this study fills a number of gaps in both Russian and American cultural history, bringing together the issues of religion, science, gender, body politics and the state. By drawing on interviews with Russian and American birth practitioners, as well as participant observation of the birthing practices on both continents, I seek to define their agendas for the development of alternative ideologies and practices, as well as their specific effects, experienced on both global and local scales. In particular, I attempt to problematize the conventional narratives of globalization and biomedicalization, presenting “local” cultures either as passive victims of the dominant Western agent or rebels exercising futile resistance. Despite the turbulent effects of Western intervention into the Russian value system and everyday practices, the local culture of Russia proved capable of producing, promoting, and communicating to the world particular models and schemes that proved to be viable...

Through occupation and trade during the last ten years, the United States and Cuba have absorbed facets of each other???s cultural profile. Two products of recent exchange in Cuba as a result of its relationship with the United States are the emergence of online social networks and the growth of Cuban hip-hop. In the US, social networking (through vehicles such as Facebook, Myspace and Twitter) is used as a method of communication and a marketing tool. Many small record labels primarily rely on this type of grassroots marketing to appeal to their web-savvy target audience. While rap musicians in Cuba do not always have the capability to commercially sell professionally mixed albums due to a dependence on government allocated musician???s funds and materials, and submissiveness to government???s jurisdiction over what music is publicly released, the accessibility of the internet and social networks make possible a release of music at an underground level. As a result, complete censorship becomes an impossible feat and these musicians are able to release their music nationally and internationally through this medium. In this paper, I explore the expansion in the use of new social media networks in Cuba and their role in burgeoning the commercialization of Cuban rappers and their music. I note the differences in social media???s influence for Cuban underground rappers versus commercial rappers and the resulting success...

Since his inauguration, President Obama has relaxed the musical embargo of Cuba following a long period when musical exchanges between the U.S. and Cuba were few and far between. This has made high-profile Cuban performances possible for U.S. musicians like Kool and the Gang, Colombian-American rocker Juanes, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. This period has also seen more Cuban musicians performing in the U.S. because the State Department has resumed issuing cultural exchange visas to Cubans, and the Cuban government is allowing more musicians to travel abroad. While these exchanges can be seen as a part of President Obama???s call for a ???new beginning??? in the U.S.-Cuban relationship, he also cautioned against overestimating the political impact these exchanges could have. In the same way that contemporary global economic processes create dense interconnections along with areas of exclusion and immobility, recent musical flows between the U.S. and Cuba are also awkward, uneven and discontinuous. While performers distance themselves from any overtly political stance, the disparities between who may participate in these transnational performances, when and where they take place, and the various controversies and reactions they inspire expose a range of attitudes and realities about the U.S.-Cuban relationship and its future. By analyzing the awkward and uneven nature of these performances in both the U.S. and Cuba...

In the last four decades there has been a radical restructuring of the scope and character of the production and distribution of many goods, including food. This process has been termed ‘globalisation’, shaping people’s lives in profound cultural, ideological and economic ways. The term has become part of the standard vocabulary of the social sciences, as it has been widely recognised that the world is experiencing a new and qualitatively different phase of capitalist development (Galbraith, 2002; Stiglitz, 2003; Steger, 2009). The characteristics of globalisation include the worldwide spread of modern technologies of production, particularly including in communications but also into farming, the agricultural supply sector and food processing. This involves money, production and trade as part of what has been termed ‘the borderless world’, and the networking of virtually all the world’s economies, fostering ever-closer functional integration (Yeung, 1998; Ohmae, 2005; Snyder, 2009). It also refers to the linking and interrelationships between cultural forms and practices that develop when societies become integrated into and dependent on world markets as part of the congruence and homogenisation of capitalist economic forms...

This paper, part of a series of ‘provocations’ delivered at a symposium in Hong Kong, covers some of the broader issues in Creative Writing programs within universities in Australia. While higher institutions in Asia are introducing this new discipline, Australian universities need to be vigilant in terms of monitoring how this growth area has affected two substantial fields of knowledge: creative research and literary translation. Before Australian programs try to engage with those in Asia, they need to address some of the systemic uncertainties within their own institutions, such as regarding creative writing as research. Traditionally, universities and their national governing bodies have viewed Creative Writing as something outside their disciplinary structures. There is still no real definition of how a novel, for example, is considered as ‘research’. The exegetical component therefore, has been formed as a ‘research arm’, giving some critical analysis to what is essentially a literary enterprise. Understandably, this shifts the focus to the cognitive side of the brain, and this entails losses such as framing a reception which may have been much wider without academic self-analysis and referential ‘authority’. My argument is that ‘creative writing’ is essentially a publishing practice avant la lettre and...

The critical need for private sector involvement in the fight against corruption is now an accepted fact, particularly in East Asia, where there is a buoyant private sector and where corruption has often been equated with cronyism. Cutting off corruption's supply side is a vital step in limiting the economic damage inflicted by corrupt practices. Despite the importance of private sector efforts in this regard, little attention has been paid to company anticorruption programs and to trying to learn from company experience. This book, which is based on research cosponsored by the World Bank and the Conference Board, provides detailed documentation of the efforts of Western and Asian companies to develop good standards of business conduct in their East Asian operations. It provides evidence that a common set of principles for resisting corruption can be established notwithstanding the rich cultural diversity and ownership structure of firms based in that region.

This study examines the role of things in the making of New Netherland in the seventeenth century and the formation of New York in the early eighteenth century. With an attention to the translations of form and transculturations of meaning for objects, which have often led peripatetic lives, I focus on previously marginalized crafts and everyday objects like books, tea tables, chairs, hearth tiles, and other domestic goods found in peoples’ homes, to describe the way things connected people and places in early modern Dutch trade networks. Through a careful analysis of objects of material culture and depictions of material culture I focus on how the colony was physically constructed and ideologically imagined internally by the colonists and externally by other interested parties throughout Atlantic world. My research on the making, circulation, and consumption of things in and from New Netherland develops intersecting narratives of the past, some of them regional and localized, others cross-cultural, transnational, and global. By connecting artifacts, objects, and things to larger narratives it is possible to write a new history of materiality and the making of New Netherland, primarily in the seventeenth century but also in later histories. In what follows...

Dissertação (mestrado)—Universidade de Brasília, Programa de Pós-Graduação em História, 2013.; A presente dissertação investiga a participação do Brasil nas atividades da Comissão Internacional de Cooperação Intelectual e do Instituto Internacional de Cooperação Intelectual, organismos dependentes da Sociedade das Nações, que se dedicaram à promoção da cooperação internacional entre eruditos nas áreas da educação, da ciência e da cultura, com vistas à realização da paz mundial. Ao adotar uma perspectiva transnacional, elege como objeto de pesquisa a trajetória dos atores envolvidos naquelas atividades, a fim não só de caracterizar a comunidade de especialistas reunidos em torno do assunto, mas também de realçar sua contribuição para a institucionalização da cooperação intelectual internacional. A dissertação tem também por objetivo demonstrar que a internacionalização das atividades de cooperação intelectual promovidas pela Sociedade das Nações contribuiu decididamente para a criação e a consolidação de um setor na estrutura institucional do Ministério das Relações Exteriores do Brasil especialmente dedicado aos assuntos da cooperação intelectual, consagrando, dessa forma...

This study examines Irish modernist literature in order to complicate established critical modes which read modernist movements as reflective of distinctly vernacular or cosmopolitan aesthetic and political commitments. I argue that neither recent models of vernacular modernism nor older models of cosmopolitan modernism entirely account for the stylistic innovations and formal experiments of modernist literature. Instead, modernist writers negotiate a field of tension between the poles of cosmopolitan and vernacular, and demonstrate that their works represent forms of identity that accommodate elements of both national belonging and cosmopolitan individualism.

Examining works by four authors - William Butler Yeats, Elizabeth Bowen, Samuel Beckett, and Raymond Queneau - this project argues that modernist literature represents a set of idiosyncratic, dynamic efforts to negotiate the tensions between the limits of the nation-state system and a variety of emerging transnational modes of cultural exchange in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The nature of modernist writers' efforts to negotiate a period of passage between national and global systems of exchange is, I think, especially visible in the case of Irish modernism. Ireland's transition from a part of the United Kingdom to an independent nation-state in the interwar period makes that nation's literature an exemplary case for my argument...

This dissertation examines space as a privileged yet repressed site of cultural production in a global America, in response to ongoing attempts to reconfigure American literary and cultural studies through the lens of globalization, postnationality, worlding, and planetarity, and to build conversations between literature, the arts, and space. Drawing its inspiration from Henri Lefebvre's work on the production of social space and Fredric Jameson's theory of postmodern global culture, this project studies globalization with a particular emphasis on its unique spatial apparatus, which through geographical expansion and contraction and worldwide connection and disconnection produces hitherto unprecedented social spaces, including most notably the global city, virtual space, transnational diasporas, postmodern architecture, and the "non-places" of shopping malls, airports, and highways. I discuss how these global social spaces radically alter our experience of the lifeworld (Lebenswelt) and transform our representational practices, by analyzing innovative contemporary cultural forms such as literary theory (Jameson, Derrida, Adorno, and Deleuze), deconstructive architecture (Peter Eisenman), video art (Nam June Paik)...

This dissertation, Mobile Ethnicity, examines the formation of a transnational ethnic working class and the dynamics of remittance development in the context of Korean Chinese labor migration between China and Korea. I conducted multi-sited field research for over two years, mainly in Seoul, South Korea, and the Korean Chinese Autonomous Prefecture of Yanbian, China, the ethnic zone bordering North Korea. My ethnography is built on a local saying: "Everybody is gone with the Korean Wind." The Korean Wind is the popular name for the massive Korean Chinese transnational labor migration to South Korea that occurred mostly during the 1990s and 2000s, at the intersection of post-Cold War and post-socialist cultures. I especially highlight the Korean Wind as a unique product of China's economic reform and open economy (gaigekaifang), which has affected not only Korean Chinese but also Han Chinese in Yanbian and elsewhere in the region.

Through the lenses of kinship, development, money, love, bodies, and time, I analyze the new affect and materiality, new forms of belonging and dwelling, and new hopes and frustrations of mobile ethnicity. On the one hand, I trace the reconstituted subjectivity of Korean Chinese as a particular ethnic working class in a transnational setting. On the other hand...

http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/2175-7976.2008v15n20p223Dentro del marco de su política hacia el liderazgo hegemónico después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, EE.UU. comenzó a desarrollar iniciativas dirigidas a los campos cultural y académico de América Latina con el objetivo de atraer a los intelectuales y a las elites de la región hacia su proyecto estratégico. El proceso de la Guerra Fría aceleró la emergencia del campo de la diplomacia cultural como un eje paralelo y complementario a la diplomacia tradicional, a la cual estaba subordinada, aunque manteniendo métodos, dinámicas y objetivos específicos. Programas y actividades diversos como el intercambio de estudiantes, intelectuales y líderes; la asistencia técnica, militar, informativa, y de inteligencia; la promoción del idioma inglés y de las industrias de Hollywood y de la TV; entre varias iniciativas, procuraron “ganar los corazones y las mentes” de las sociedades locales. La proyección política de la diplomacia cultural recurrió a agencias federales, universidades, y sociedades filantrópicas para apoyar iniciativas culturales que, más allá de difundir paradigmas científicos y artísticos, también constituyó la exportación de una ideología: la promoción del “sueño americano.” La llegada a América Latina de estos programas...

This article discusses the ways people strengthen and maintain their sense of belonging to concrete or imagined places or groups via communication networks. It focuses on the flow of things through transnational networks between Cape Verdean migrants and their relatives at home. It is an intense and diversified network involving kinship ties in a context of prolonged physical distance in both space and time. The flows in question consolidate social, cultural, and family networks between migrants and their home communities in a complex system of exchange and circulation of gifts, requests, money, and information that mobilize those who leave and those who stay. The argument is based on the dialogue between ethnographic data and works that have explored transnational flows of people, capital, and goods within the globalization framework.
