cultural heritage risk? Will globalization ultimately lead global culture? Why ?
Globalization has made it possible for people coming from a wide range of environments to interact and to influence each other. India has experienced the full hit of globalization as its people were provided with Western thought during the last few decades and as cultural values have gone through a significant restructuring process. While certain aspects of globalization provide people in India with benefits, they also suffer as a consequence of the fact that their community is experiencing a slow but sure process of reform.

The Indian landscape is very diverse, as modern buildings in large cities contrast rural areas where people still use animals as a means of plowing land. Luxurious cars are driven alongside of scooters, bicycles and carts drawn by camels, this standing as proof that India adapted to change without abandoning a series of its traditional….

Promoting Cultural Heritage at the Ayutthaya Elephant Farm in Ayutthaya Thailand
[under Development Pending Feedback]

The focus of this research study is the oyal Kraal in Ayutthaya, Thailand (hereinafter alternatively "the elephant farm" or "oyal Kraal"). As home to more than 90 retired or rescued elephants, the oyal Kraal in Ayutthaya represents an important resource for the Kingdom of Thailand and elephant conservationists around the world. The importance of the oyal Kraal as well as the focus of this study relate to the valuable contributions it is making to the care and welfare of elephants in Thailand, as well as to its potential as a cultural heritage tourism site for domestic and international tourists. In this regard, authorities in the field such as Furnis (2007) emphasize the need for all three of the resources, (i) cultural, (ii) historic and (iii) natural, to provide an authentic cultural heritage tourism experience. The need for….

Literary Criticism Research Paper Heritage means different things to different people. By definition, heritage means an individual's perception of their unique family identity, including the artifacts, culture, traditions, and values passed down through generations. We all absorb our heritage from childhood through experience and through observing. Even though not everything passed down through generations is positive, heritage is widely considered positive. Positive in the sense that the elements being passed down are meaningful elements that identify our families and our cultures, and we are also supposed to pass them down.
In many cases, what families hold close to heart as heritage is their cultural or ethnic identity. Other families also hold values such as religiosity, strong work ethic, leading a social life, and pursuit of education to be their heritage. For some individuals, their love for certain sports, music, or adventure is part and parcel of what they consider heritage (Zhang, Rui….

My Cultural Heritage

rief History of the "Old Country"

Generations upon generations of Americans do not really consider the United States as their "true home country" because they came here in search of a better life and future not only for themselves but for their loved ones. Despite their reasons for living their native homelands, they still have fond memories of the "old country." I for one am no different since I originated from the Dominican Republic, an island paradise in the Caribbean that occupies almost 70% of the island of Hispaniola. Hispaniola actually comprises of two nations, Haiti to the west and the Dominican Republic on the eastern side.….

Traditional cultural expressions include tangible and intangible items unique to a specific culture, including everything from visual and performing art forms to religious ceremonies and architecture. It was not until I realized that wearing or using the cultural expressions from other societies often constituted cultural appropriation that I began to examine my own cultural expressions more critically. For example, for non-native people to wear moccasins is a form of cultural appropriation by taking traditional cultural expressions and taking them completely out of context. As Franklin (2016) also points out, some indigenous cultures perform dances or music in front of tourists with potentially problematic results. Yet cultural expressions are one of the most important ways of retaining the core elements of a traditional culture, helping societies to pass on their knowledge, wisdom, and traditions to future generations. Cultural expressions also allow members of a society to communicate and share the beauty….

The autho's cultue is highly influenced by ual Indian cultue, as s/he was aised in India until s/he was 25 yeas old. Because of this late influence of Ameican cultue, my Indian cultue has emained stonge within me.

" Taking into consideration these three stages, I would position myself in the second stage - that of cultural identity search. I am aware of my cultural background and I always have been, but the fact that I live in the multicultural American society made it hard for me to fully embrace my cultural heritage. I am at a stage in my life when I feel the need to understand my culture in order to better understand who I am. The fact that I am aware of my cultural appurtenance does not mean that I completely embrace my cultural identity. Learning about my cultural heritage is the path towards better understanding who I am and identifying myself with the cultural group that I belong to.

Cultural Perceptions of Time in frica
Time is a foundational factor in every culture. The perception of time is different for most cultures and the determining factor to those differences is often based on the means of production. "Most cultures have some concept of time, although the way they deal with time may differ fundamentally." (Kokole 1994, 35) Tracing the perception of the concept of time in frica can be seen as tracing the European racial prejudices of the intellect of the indigenous populations in the colonized regions of frica. Much of the information regarding the development of time concepts in frican culture is colonial and based on the European interlopers recorded ideas.

Some of those recorded ideas are those of missionaries and others are those of capitalist adventurers, with the intermittent mark of a very few true historians.

In Mali, as in many other parts of frica, there are mixed systems of….

Nursing: Cultural Competence, Sensitivity and Empowerment
Cultural Competence, Sensitivity and Empowerment: Nursing

The changing demographics of the modern-day multicultural world are increasingly challenging healthcare professionals to consider cultural diversity as a priority in the health sector. Being able to deliver effective care to patients from diverse backgrounds begins with understanding the values, beliefs, and customs associated with different cultures. This text summarizes the writer's experience in a Native American powwow, and explores the effect of the Native American culture on the nursing profession.

Nursing: Cultural Competence, Sensitivity and Empowerment

Diversity is a word that perhaps means something different to each and every individual (Campinha-Bacote, 2003). What is for sure, however, is that the changing demographics of the modern-day multicultural world have, and continue to challenge healthcare professionals to consider cultural diversity as a fundamental concern in the health sector. The U.S. population is projected to reach 400 million by 2050, and estimates show that….

Cultural Identity Essay
PAGES 13 WORDS 3931

Abstract This paper discusses all the facets and considerations inherent to a cultural identity essay. Namely, the paper describes the importance of cultural identity, the definition of cultural identity, and examples of cultural identity—both theoretical and literal examples in the world today. This paper seeks to show how one’s cultural identity is so much more than just a melee of one’s race, environment and heritage. Cultural identity is made up of so many factors and influences, both positive and negative, and both direct and covert. This paper sheds light on how one’s cultural identity manifests and how the cultural identity of two people from the same family can be slightly or tremendously different, as a result of a difference of lived experiences and preferences. Finally, this paper investigates some of the more dominant theories of cultural identity.

Cultural Competence
The culture that I have chosen is Native Americans, which for U.S. government purposes are usually defined as Native Americans and Alaskan Natives. This is an umbrella group for all of the different tribes, and people descended from those tribes, so there can be significant cultural differences between the groups. This group often suffers from health care outcomes that are worse than those in the general population. The leading causes of morbidity/mortality among this group have been identified as motor vehicle accidents, suicide, firearms and homicide in order. While motor vehicle accidents are the highest cause among whites as well, the rate of such among Native Americans is more than double either whites or blacks. Suicide rates among Native Americans are nearly five times what they are for whites or blacks. Firearm rates are much higher than those of whites, but lower than those for blacks. The homicide rate….

Heritage assessment tool

The heritage assessment tool acknowledges the different degrees of impact an individual's ethnic heritage may have upon his or her worldview. For some individuals who are very emotionally connected to their family and extended family, their sense of self is defined by their religion, customs and beliefs as they relate to a larger tradition. For example, someone who is Hispanic-American may spend a great deal of time not only with his or her nuclear family, but also with an extended network of cousins, grandparents, and even friends of the family. Even if not particularly religious, the rituals of the Catholic Church might provide a source of joy during traditional holidays and a source of comfort during times of stress.….

While in high school, she worked as a waitress at a local diner. Most of the population was black, therefore there was little contact with white customers or employees. Margaret feels that she was socially isolated until the 1950s. She was not exposed to white culture; it was foreign to her. She was only exposed to black culture of the time. They were not allowed in certain stores, restaurants, or other places of business. She remembers "white only" restrooms and "black only" fountains. This cultural isolation was oppressive.
Margaret feels that the oppressive attitudes and discrimination that she experienced as a child determined much of how her life proceeded in adulthood. The idea that she could only go so far was ingrained as a child. She never really broke free of this feeling. In her 40s, she moved to upstate New York. Here, she found that many women had succeeded….
