Ethnicity and Identity
The major issues in cultural practice today include identity crisis, creation of a new national culture, conflicts derived from regional imbalance in economic development and power sharing, fear of erosion of indigenous values and problems of morals and cultures in the waves of cyber streams and globalization. However, these issues, are invariably related to the key issues of cultural identity and ethnicity. The identity that defines the sense of nation, community and ethnic roots is generally linked to the politics of nationalism, national integration and political contests.The purpose of the texts included in this book is to highlight these points and treat the intercultural phenomenon carefully, to reflect on what it implies on social, political as well as aesthetic levels.
