(p.297) 13 Cultural Diversity in the Global Ecumene
The Economics of Transnational Commons

Ulf Hannerz

Oxford University Press

The chapter starts by discussing two aspects of globalization. On the one hand, population and social structures which have previously always been separated now increasingly impinge physically and materially on people's living conditions and are the basis of most problems of transnational commons. On the other hand, there is also a growing, more direct flow of culture, of meanings and modes of expression, between territories and populations. For both of these reasons, one will have to reconsider received notions about boundaries and conceptions of boundedness which may have long been taken for granted. The chapter also discusses at length the right to one's culture, as well as the relationship of culture and ecology. It also talks about the role of difference as resistance, enjoying diversity, creative confrontations, drawing on other cultures, and the future of diversity.
