As racism and the European ideas of primitive art were abolished, the appreciation of Benin artworks was on the raise. Moreover, the Victorian Britain, which is the British Empire during the reign of Queen Victoria who led peace, imperialism, self-confidence and freedom come to light, was inspired by the African art which became known to the British after the British colonization of Africa. Making the bronze casting come to light by bringing them to the west inspired the imagination and interest of the most prominent ethnographers, anthropologists, scientists and the western people. They were placed in the ethnographic museums and didn't befit the public depiction of Benin as primitive and savage state. They evoked a great sense of civilization and grandeur.
Professor Faden is the wrong we have proved multiple times. It is just like the case of Rogers VS. Koons. In that case photographer Art Rodgers took a photo of a couple and he owns the copyright for it. And artist Jeff Koons made an exact replica of the image into statues. The artist Jeff Koons is in the wrong because it isn’t his image to use and he was using the statues to grow in the art world.
Yet, these traits can vary by location and are influenced by social and cultural factors. This leads to an overemphasis on the masculinity and the power they have, also perhaps having a disregard for consequences and responsibility that they may have from this machismo. In society, today, people are labelling each other and assumptions are made about genders and is part of socialization to meet the norms of the society. In this essay, I will
Lavani claims that the British built 10,000 miles of train tracks and that they have only benefited India since their creation. While the fact that the tracks were built is true, the trains main purpose was to transport India’s wealth away from it (Doc #7). Indians couldn 't ride the trains first class in their own country, and were left to ride on top of the trains (a very dangerous thing) (Gandhi). The trains served the British first, and the Indians second. Lavani also tried to make a point saying “...both nations benefited from the trade links”.
The white men are almost hidden away because they were at work when things happened. But if they found out anything the maid had done wrong I am sure they would have taken action. When one of the maids stole a ring she was reported to the police, not lynched or beaten up by the owner. This is unlikely, because people lynched just for accusations, they didn’t even need
These perspectives/dimensions include political, cultural and economic colonialism. These aspects show the various elements and features of the culture that change as a result of the influence of another community's cultural infiltration. While the theory comprehensively discusses the various functions that change the cultural values of people following influences from other communities, it fails to elaborate directly how these changes are responsible for underdevelopment in the world (Lavia 2007). In the case of southeastern nations, the neocolonial dependence model would be more efficient as it explores how the changes in the past led to underdevelopment and development of particular communities and nations. Moreover, this theory also attempts to explain the causes for the different social classes in the poor communities, a topic that the multidimensional approach fails to
In our society the way we perceive things is at times considered more defining than how we actually are; hence the importance of how we construct our labels and who defines them. Not only do these labels affect how others see us but also they influence how we view ourselves. They can be beneficial in how we construct our self-identity, but damaging when inaccurately applied. There are many ways in which to define people, but a crucial one is the way we define deviance, which more often than not boils down to whether or not someone is a part of a society. With this in mind it is important to recognize that what may be considered deviant to some is acceptable to others; for those in power are the ones defining deviance, at times to their own advantage.
Hence to go beyond ethnocentricity, managers try to understand and internalize cultural differences. For example when George bush gifted Chinese premier Li Peng a cowboy boot embroidered with both American and china flags, it was wrong on the basis of administrative protocols because in china shoes are considered to be the lowliest of the objects. Even knowing about the symbols of different countries in very important when you venture out to do business with them. The ability of employees to work effectively together across borders has become increasingly critical to international business success. Cross-cultural understanding by individuals and the organization as a whole helping in eliminating misunderstandings that could otherwise harm the business and in fact will help in maximizing the best attributes each nationality has to offer.
Items of material culture are powerful in identity formation. Cultural identities are constructed and presented by those who promote tourism and seek to attract tourist revenue. Anthropologists have argued that touristic cultures can make identities impaired or even destroyed because tourism generates change in other cultures. Others have said that tourism has beneficial cultural effects as
This arrogance of him hindered the success of the business as proof shows that Apple Lisa was very unsuccessful and they only sold 100000 copies. What Bill Gates did in steal Steve’s GUI it was seen as unethical as they worked together before and just before the new Macintosh was about to be released Microsoft released their software which didn’t have style and was a blunt copy of Apple, although HP and IBM bought Windows and put it in their software. This was extremely unethical as he stole the hard work developed at Apple for their own success. Mike Markkula lied to Jobs when he sided with Scully at the end and turned against him that was very publicly out and
