Abstract
All cultures seek various ways of expressing themselves in order to solidify group identity but also for political and economic reasons. In the context of unprecedented global mobilities and multi-culturalism the expression of cultural identities has gained heightened importance. However, this poses challenges in how to present diverse cultures. In this presentation I discuss cultural diversity as an important resource for both educational and economic reasons and how multicultural societies are building a new heritage that will become increasingly important.
認同性的表現: 全球化世界的文化多樣性價值
摘要
為了鞏固族群的認同感,加上政治與經濟的考量,如今所有的文化皆尋求各種展現自身的方式。在前所未見的全球遷徙和多元文化論的脈絡下,文化認同的展現成為越來越重要的課題。然而,這樣的現狀挑戰了多元文化的呈現方式。我將在這場演說提出:不論在教育或經濟的意義上,文化多樣性作為一個重要的資源;以及多元文化的社會如何建立新的而且是越來越重要的文化遺產。
