Henry talked a lot of doctrinal guff but it all came down to politics and basic instincts – Henry wanted to divorce his wife and marry Anne Boleyn, hoping for a son, a male heir to the throne. He certainly did not want to be told what to do and not to do by religious leaders. The new Protestant religion, of which Henry appointed himself Supreme Head, represented huge changes in worship for the people of England. The whole inside of the church building looked different for a start: out went the many painted statues, ornate decoration, stained glass windows, wall paintings and the carved rood screen separating the nave of the church from the chancel, the holy area nearest to the altar. The biggest change in worship was the abolition of the Latin Mass, along with the requirement to confess sins to a priest.
Meaning of cultural competence: According to Wikipedia cultural competence is the requirement of organizations to have defined rules of behaviours and attitudes to be used so that they can work effectively across cultures. The reason to rising need of cultural competence is globalization. Globalization is where the businesses/organizations expand to work internationally and hence working with more people from different societies and hence different cultures.

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you 'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It 's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.”(Bradbury 82). The People in the dystopian world wishes to have a better society like the modern society. This is the best way to compare the dystopian society to the modern society because in the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, the book talks about the government burning books because they think the books are going to hurt other people, while the modern society thinks that books help people and educate others.
The government does not want people to be unhappy and worried so they burn all of the books. Montag burns the books and houses with books in them. Houses are fireproof but the inside memories are all destroyed. He does this to make others happy but Montag himself is not happy. Through Ray Bradbury’s book Fahrenheit 451 Montag and his wife Mildred
It is an age marked by the globalization of the economy and by rapidly increasing mobility, communication, integration and interdependence, large-scale migrations and displacement of populations, urbanization and changing social patterns.” For this reason, the need for dialogue between civilizations is very urgent. The Islamic Declaration on Cultural Diversity stated that “The urge to gear dialogue among peoples and cultures towards serving the universal objectives of the humanity as a
This is what makes the prime minister’s visit so controversial: by having him pay respect at a shrine that contains one thousand war criminals it becomes as if he is honouring the crimes that they committed. Needless to say, the crimes that these criminals committed were staggeringly erroneous, yet the Yushukan, or the museum within the Yasukuni Shrine, refuses to acknowledge any of them, which infuriates countries in the Asia-Pacific region who were directly affected by Japan’s actions in the past. “[The Yushukan] takes too many liberties with historical accuracy” recounted Mishra, who described that the museum presented The Rape of Nanjing in 1937 as “an incident in which ‘Chinese soldiers in civilian clothes’ were ‘severely prosecuted.’” Despite that, the Japanese Prime Minister Abe insists on visiting. His grandfather was arrested by the United States under suspicion of being an A-class war criminal, include how abe wanted to complete his dream of militarising japan after wwii therefore it is only natural for him to visit, as he found it to be his mission to perpetrate his grandfather’s dream of remilitarising Japan after
Diaspora majorly concerns alienation, marginalization, race, identity crisis and nostalgia. As Stuart Hall suggests that cultural identities are constantly evolved and developed and are transformed: “The Diaspora experience as I intend it here is defined, not by essence or purity, but by the recognition of a necessary heterogeneity and diversity; by a conception of ‘identity’ which lives with and through, not despite difference, by hybridity. Diaspora identities are those which are constantly producing and reproducing themselves anew, through transformation and difference” (235). The first hand experience by Bharati Mukharjee in Jasmine enables her to delve into the mind of the readers and to explain the emotions of a migrant who has to go through during the tenure of migration. Bharati Mukherjee in her novel JASMINE interweaves the themes of cross
Can you imagine one day living your normal everyday life and then the next day getting colonized and being forced to do things you didn 't want. In 1707 the Mughal empire was collapsing and the British saw India as the “jewel in the crown.” So they attacked and and ended up ruling everything of indias from political, social, and economic resources. They saw all of India’s raw materials and there 300 million population as a great thing to invest and to colonize. I’m about to show you why when the British took over it led to hatred between religions, took away people 's god given rights, took advantage of people and their resources, built things that would only benefit themselves, but most of all started world hunger in india. Political Paragraph When the British assumed control of india it destroyed mutual respect and caused tension between Hindus and Muslims, and created they army 's to control and restrict basic rights from the Indians.
Globalisation is an important step for better and stable lives. Therefore, as globalization increases it brings up several problems to the society. Globalization initial purpose is to link us together, however, at the same time, it is separating individuals apart. Coposescu stated that there is a need for continuity and belonging and the sense of relating to others. However at the same time, we need differentiation, discontinuity and individuality and the sense of having a unique character (10).
CHAPTER 2. UNDERSTANDING THE CULTURE AND YOUTH IN UAE 2.1 IMPORTANCE OF HISTORY AND CULTURE IN THE UAE In the recent years, we have witnessed rapid globalization which has helped reducing distances between nations in turn developing new and stronger relations and creating a singular place, but this has somehow led to de-centering and desolation of identities. ‘The social change, as a result, introduces significant alteration of social structures where social structures mean patterns of social action and interaction. Globalization has therefore created the need for identity. Many societies are attempting to rediscover and define their sense of self (often referred to as national identity) in a world that is rapidly producing cosmopolitan societies driven by economic powers.’ [Al-Khouri, 2010] UAE over the past 40 years has experienced a similar kind of rapid change and urbanization.
