This is possibly the worst chart in the world!

(a) you can't cluster cultures like this, you lose what matters: Geertz's thick (vs thin) description;

(b) the idea that Protestant Europe or English Speaking cultures value "self expression" vs "survival values" has never been inside a corporate workspace where many people spend many of their lives, or surveyed the incomes of artists in these countries.


(c) Secularity and rationality are also traditions, going back hundreds or even thousands of years.

(d) The idea that as cultures develop, the move towards Protestant Europe is the silliest, most blatantly ethnocentric statement I've seen in a long time.

Let's hope that people are not being trained using this BS.

Rewire: Digital Cosmopolitans in the Age of Connection |

Rewire: Digital Cosmopolitans in the Age of Connection | | eLearning | Scoop.it
A rousing call to action for those who would be citizens of the world—online and off.

We live in an age of connection, one that is accelerated by the Internet. This increasingly ubiquitous, immensely powerful technology often leads us to assume that as the number of people online grows, it inevitably leads to a smaller, more cosmopolitan world. We’ll understand more, we think. We’ll know more. We’ll engage more and share more with people from other cultures. In reality, it is easier to ship bottles of water from Fiji to Atlanta than it is to get news from Tokyo to New York.

In Rewire, media scholar and activist Ethan Zuckerman explains why the technological ability to communicate with someone does not inevitably lead to increased human connection. At the most basic level, our human tendency to “flock together” means that most of our interactions, online or off, are with a small set of people with whom we have much in common. In examining this fundamental tendency, Zuckerman draws on his own work as well as the latest research in psychology and sociology to consider technology’s role in disconnecting ourselves from the rest of the world.

For those who seek a wider picture—a picture now critical for survival in an age of global economic crises and pandemics—Zuckerman highlights the challenges, and the headway already made, in truly connecting people across cultures. From voracious xenophiles eager to explore other countries to bridge figures who are able to connect one culture to another, people are at the center of his vision for a true kind of cosmopolitanism. And it is people who will shape a new approach to existing technologies, and perhaps invent some new ones, that embrace translation, cross-cultural inspiration, and the search for new, serendipitous experiences.

Rich with Zuckerman’s personal experience and wisdom, Rewire offers a map of the social, technical, and policy innovations needed to more tightly connect the world.

Mannequins Give Shape to a Venezuelan Fantasy

Mannequins Give Shape to a Venezuelan Fantasy | eLearning | Scoop.it
Mannequins with bulging bosoms have become standard in Venezuela, reflecting the country’s embrace of plastic surgery even among those who can least afford it.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 7, 2013 9:34 AM

Unrealistic manniquins are nothing new...but society produces mannequins and the mannequins are a part of the cultural landscape that has some normative ideals of beauty and gender.  How does the media and society's images of the 'ideal body' influence and shape cultural values and aspirations?


On the opposite side of the spectrum watch this video about the production of manniquins modeled on people with disabilities.  The tag line for the project was "because who is perfect anyway?"

Albert Jordan's curator insight, February 12, 2014 6:39 PM

 

 

It comes as no surprise that mannequins are becoming “sexier” in other markets as countries develop and become more consumer driven. We can already see the evolution of the store mannequin in the United States as every few trends it will change its form to what is the attractive norm. Right now, “curvy” focused mannequins are beginning to show up in store front windows as a push for more natural bodied women in advertising grows. The evolution of the Venezuelan mannequin may be a bit more extreme but it goes to show the cultural change(or regression, depending on how you feel about body image) of an area as well as the influence put on it by globalization and even regional influence. As the article states, Venezuelan women have begun to undergo plastic surgery to “improve their self-esteem.” While not many do, it becomes a status symbol to have an operation. Even some shop owners, when told by the costumer that they wish to look like the mannequin, are told to go get an operation.

While here in America, the plastic surgery trend began to die off and is now seen as for those who are superficial or materialistic. However, this trend had been seen in Brazil many years prior to Venezuela today and it can probably be safely assumed that because these two countries share a border, certain trends and elements of culture have gone back and forth. As western media penetrates further and further into traditionally institutionalized anti-western countries, the advertising effects on body image will change as more companies that deal with fashion, make up, and image begin to do business, invest, and advertise. Especially so in a Latin society where men are still typically held in higher regard, competition amongst women could fuel the importance of looks. The maker of the “new and improved” mannequins has made quite an income out of it. Many of the shopkeepers who use the mannequins have even seen an increase in revenue.  

 In Venezuela there is also a culture of aesthetics and a certain pride in what is perceived as beauty, due in part to the countries own scenic magnificence . Although a socialist country who’s past and now deceased President was very critical of the “Western” and American influence, Venezuela had nourished a culture of easy money and consumerism due to the wealth of its oil reserves and the cheapness at which its citizens were able to buy it. During the late President Hugo Chavez’s reign, the government attempted to dissuade the desire for plastic surgery by saying the money being spent by poor women on plastic surgery should be going to more important needs. Nevertheless, sometimes cultural and societal demands can be as powerful as governmental demands and advice.

Again, globalization and consumerism can drive a cultural phenomenon. The owner of the store wanted to attract more buyers of his mannequins and so he made them “sexier.” By doing this, he put into the minds of the women looking at them that if they dress like that statue or shop at that store, they will look as good. Even if it is unrealistic, the placebo affect is almost just as good as the real thing.

The globalization of social sciences? Evidence from a quantitative analysis of 30 years of production, collaboration and citations in the social sciences (1980–2009) ; towards new patterns of citat... | eLearning | Scoop.it

Abstract

This article addresses the issue of internationalization of social sciences by studying the evolution of production (of academic articles), collaboration and citations patterns among main world regions over the period 1980–2009 using the SSCI. The results confirm the centre–periphery model and indicate that the centrality of the two major regions that are North America and Europe is largely unchallenged, Europe having become more important and despite the growing development of Asian social sciences. The authors’ quantitative approach shows that the growing production in the social sciences but also the rise of international collaborations between regions have not led to a more homogeneous circulation of the knowledge produced by different regions, or to a substantial increase in the visibility of the contributions produced by peripheral regions. Social scientists from peripheral regions, while producing more papers in the core journals compiled by the SSCI, have a stronger tendency to cite journals from the two central regions, thus losing at least partially their more locally embedded references, and to collaborate more with western social scientists. In other words, the dynamic of internationalization of social science research may also lead to a phagocytosis of the periphery into the two major centers, which brings with it the danger of losing interest in the local objects specific to those peripheral regions.
