The book reviews and summarizes the theories of multiculturalism and analyzes the elements of the models. It draws up the main questions of multiethnic societies, highlights the problems and points at the possibilities and limits of multicultural theories. Examining several examples on special social policies, it focuses on Australia as best practice. Australia had a long way from White Australia policy to the multicultural one. Analyzing the road to multiculturalism and the results of the policy, this book takes the past 50 years of the country into a wider perspective linking foreign policy, economic development and social transformations.5433 Руб.
Multiculturalism is controversial in the liberal state and has frequently been declared dead, even in countries that have never had a policy under that name. This authoritative book reviews the different meanings multiculturalism has acquired across theories, countries, and domains to evaluate the extent of its demise and the ways in which it lives on. Christian Joppke intriguingly argues that, beyond the ebb and flow of policy, liberal constitutionalism itself bears out a multiculturalism of the individual that is not only alive but necessary in a liberal society. Through a provocative comparison of gay rights in the United States and the accommodation of Islam in Europe, he shows that liberal constitutionalism constrains majority power, requiring the state to be neutral about people?s values and ethical commitment. It cannot but give rise to multiple ways of life or cultures, as people are endowed with the freedom to embrace them. Accordingly, impulses toward multiculturalism persist, despite its political crisis, but with a new accent on the individual, rather than group, as the unit of integration. Tightly argued and clearly written, this book provides a judicious assessment of multiculturalism in the West and will be of interest to a broad readership across the social sciences and legal studies.5990 Руб.

This dissertation is a comparative analysis of policies and programs supporting newcomers’ integration, based on case studies of Canada and Italy. Because immigrants mainly settle in large urban centres, the scope of the research concentrates on the cities of Toronto in Ontario and Rome in Lazio. The study uses qualitativey methods andraws from literature in the fields of comparative and international education, and comparative policy analysis as well as from migration, multiculturalism and citizenship theories. The comparative analysis involved a juxtaposition of the policy and institutional framework in both countries to support the integration process. A comparison of formal and informal educational provisions, which facilitate newcomers’ integration, was also carried out. The opinions of 23 key informants working in different government and non-government agencies provided insightful information on such issues as implementation problems.Many similarities emerged from the research, such as the policy language on integration and some ‘types’ of educational provisions. Several problems were identified in both systems in terms of the challenges encountered by immigrants.7678 Руб.
According to the theories proposed by feminist narratologists, the narrative techniques employed by male and female authors are different. This book investigates the narrative techniques used by a Victorian woman author, Marian Evans (George Eliot), in her first complete novel, Adam Bede. George Eliot's narrative techniques in Adam Bede, based on Warhol and Genette's theories, are studied in the third chapter of the book. Chapter four, on the other hand, looks at Greimas ' actantial model from a feminist point of view and criticizes the female characters' actions. The positions of the female characters in the model proposed by Greimas, the narratologist, are indicative of George Eliot's feminist perspectives.4850 Руб.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Multiculturalism became a world trend and surrounded almost all Western states. Many of these states declared official multiculturalism and cherished their societies’ multicultural character by the help of government policies. These multicultural policies targeted indigenous groups in US, Canada and Australia; while in Europe their addressees have become immigrants. In line with this, as an immigrant integration model, multiculturalism kept academics busy in the last decade. To make a better analysis, this study begins with a thorough examination of multiculturalism and it tries to understand whether it can be a feasible model for immigrant integration in Europe.6609 Руб.
Since the introduction of a new Constitution that promotes multiculturalism in 1995, no concrete empirical research has been done on the nexus between multiculturalism and print media in Ethiopia. So it requires some understanding of this multiethnic and multicultural matrix that we hardly find in the media professionalism in order to conduct this research. Media researchers have pointed out that negative stereotypes are the cause of great concern, because it creates a divide line between ethnic minorities and the so-called "real" or "natives". Therefore we have to try and overcome this challenge through research. If we really understood the essence of multicultural diversity, then I think we would look deeply into it and forward scientific explanation in order to keep the balance of contents in the print media-both state and privately owned Therefore,this research correlates multiculturalism and print journalism to enrich media workers, professional researchers, and concerned bodies to exhaustively excavate some important issues in media and multiculturalism issues in Ethiopia.4136 Руб.
This study investigated Art and Design teachers’ conceptualization of the constructs of multiculturalism and diversity in art teaching. It also explored how the constructs impacted on students’ studio practice. The study was carried out at two purposively sampled secondary schools in Bulawayo using an ethnographic design. Two art classes that were typically multicultural in attributes such as gender, disability, ability, ethnicity and social status of students were purposively sampled, one from each school. Two volunteer teachers who taught these classes constituted the purposive sample of participating teachers. Data were collected using interviews, document analysis and observations. The two teachers were interviewed as well as observed as they interacted with learners during art lessons. Their curricula documents yielded multicultural issues that augmented the interviews and observations. The study revealed that teachers were conscious of the multicultural nature of the student body and made deliberate efforts to be sensitive and responsive to this diversity. The study also revealed that the mentally challenged students are pontentially creative.4763 Руб.
Our societies receive and reproduce differences, but they invent it, including under the seal of the tradition. Each of us, in the most immediate circle of acquaintances, is confronted with the raid of new identities, even with conversions; we observe the development of cultural movements. We also notice that our own experiences of a cultural sense of identity, including the most stable seemingly, are not inevitably definitive, that personal changes are always possible, susceptible to lead us up to the pure and simple renunciation of an identity, to adopt if necessary a piece of news. In the contemporary debate on the integration, the multiculturalism occupies a central place. The visibility growing of the multicultural question is connected to the conjunction of several phenomena. First of all, the rediscovery of the cultural and identical diversity in a world where this one acquires more and more importance for different groups of origin and style of life, forced to find a mode of cohabitation. Furthermore, the renewal of the social question, the corollary in the post-industrial era, places the culture in the heart of the community demands which the political impact is evident.7280 Руб.
A name that never fails to ring a bell for literary as well as non-literary persons for a variety of reasons is Sir Salman Rushdie. A writer of international stature, Rushdie is a man of many talents juggling between various genres of literature to other related artistic fields of an actor, copywriter and producer. A conscientious literary artist, Rushdie is a sensitive writer who is concerned for the human race. He is pained by the gradual loss of multiculturalism and increasing hatred and violence in the world. Depicting contemporary society and modern man’s struggle, Rushdie’s novels have a central theme of hybridity and cultural plurality that endorses his belief in the positive influence of ‘chutnified’ culture and his faith in the resilient and regenerative quality of the human spirit and humanity. The present book Multiculturalism in Salman Rushdie is an attempt to focus on this particular aspect of Rushdie’s work that characterizes his related portrayal of themes like tension and collision that man is grappling with, his quest for self and the bond of relationships that fulfill, compliment and complete his search.9224 Руб.
South Africa is a multiracial, multiethnic and multilingual country. During the dismantling of apartheid, schools opened doors to all race groups which introduced a cacophony of multi-isms into classrooms across the country; multiracialism, multilingualism, multiculturalism and so on resulting in a diversity of learners in one classroom, learning together. The situation presented a microcosmic environment of heterogeneity for teachers to grapple with as they delivered the curriculum. In some schools though, usually in rural areas, one can still find school environments that are predominantly homogeneous, but this reality only emphasises the divide between elite, challenging urban education and the lagging behind of under-resourced rural schools. The South African constitution (which has been lauded as one of the most liberal constitutions in the world) enshrines language rights. It recognises eleven official languages; Setswana, IsiZulu, IsiXhosa, TshiVenda, XiTsonga, IsiSwati, Sesotho, Sepedi, IsiNdebele, Afrikaans and English.4763 Руб.
