Soulside : inquiries into ghetto culture and community by Ulf Hannerz( Book )

49 editions published between 1969 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the outsider, the prospect of blending into the fabric of an urban African American ghetto might be an intimidating one. But for a Scandinavian scholar, the idea of getting to know one of Washington, D.C.'s toughest neighborhoods from the inside, during the racially tense late 1960s, could well have seemed impossible. Conducting fieldwork in and around Winston Street, Ulf Hannerz did just that. Soulside details the everyday lives of the ghetto inhabitants he observed and interacted with during this period, revealing their beliefs and expectations and the diversity of their lifestyles." "Originally published thirty-five years ago, Soulside became an urban anthropological classic. The book helped to dispel many false impressions about ghetto life and questioned the idea, precipitated in the influential Moynihan Report and in notions of a "culture of poverty," that the poor had chosen to lead the lives they do. Raising central moral and political questions about American society in a turbulent period, Soulside became an example of public engagement in anthropology. In a new afterword, Ulf Hannerz discusses the book's place in the debates of the time and its relevance to current arguments in anthropology."--Jacket

Transnational connections : culture, people, places by Ulf Hannerz( Book )

56 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transnational Connections provides a lucid account of culture in an age of globalization, arguing that, in an increasingly interconnected world, national understandings of culture have become insufficient. He explores the implications of boundary-crossings and long-distance cultural flows for established notions of "the local", "community," "nation" and "modernity," engaging not only theoretical debates about culture and globalization but issues of how we think and live today."
Cultural complexity : studies in the social organization of meaning by Ulf Hannerz( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A rich, witty, and accessible introduction to the anthropology of contemporary cultures, "Cultural Complexity" emphasizes that culture is organized in terms of states, markets, and movements. Hannerz pays special attention to the interplay between the centralizing agencies of culture, such as schools and media, and the decentering diversity of subcultures, and considers the special role of cities as the centers of cultural growth. Hannerz discusses cultural process in small-scale societies, the concept of subcultures, and the economics and politics of culture. Finally, he presents the twentieth-century globalization of culture as a process of cultural diffusion, polycentralism, and local innovation, focusing on periods of intensive cultural productivity in Vienna, Calcutta, and San Francisco

Hannerz invites anthropologists to think again about where their discipline is going

Anthropology now and next : essays in honor of Ulf Hannerz by Thomas Hylland Eriksen( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scholarship of Ulf Hannerz is characterized by its extraordinary breadth and visionary nature. He has contributed to the understanding of urban life and transnational networks, and the role of media, paradoxes of identity and new forms of community, suggesting to see culture in terms of flows rather than as bounded entities. Contributions honor Hannerz' legacy by addressing theoretical, epistemological, ethical and methodological challenges facing anthropological inquiry on topics from cultural diversity policies in Europe to transnational networks in Yemen, and from pottery and literature to multinational corporations

Writing future worlds : an anthropologist explores global scenarios by Ulf Hannerz( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a detailed exploration and analysis of the rise of a publishing genre providing speculative, global, and comprehensive accounts of near term geopolitical trajectories. In exploring these works from an Anthropological perspective, Hannerz focuses primarily on textual materials – the books and articles themselves, ancillary publications by the same authors, and their textual afterlives as evident in subsequent commentaries, reviews, and, occasionally, debates. Such works clearly figure saliently and, at times, consequentially in the shaping of public and policy discourses around international relations, politics, and the ongoing explanation of emergent global phenomena.
La complessità culturale : l'organizzazione sociale del significato by Ulf Hannerz( Book )

La complexité culturelle études de l'organisation sociale de la signification by Ulf Hannerz( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: La complexité culturelle constitue une tentative de parvenir à la compréhension de la culture par une voie consistant à ouvrir le concept, à le rendre processuel et flexible en terme d'échelle plutôt que statique ; et à tenir les barrières culturelles pour relatives, problématiques et, par conséquent, objets d'investigation plutôt qu'absolues et simplement déjà données. Ulf Hannerz propose ici des outils conceptuels et méthodologiques pour une approche anthropologique de la complexité culturelle contemporaine, plus précisément pour une macro-anthropologie d'inspiration interactionniste attentive autant au flux culturel mondial et à ses implications sur les processus de significations qu'à la culturalité d'interactions socialement situées. Loin de s'en tenir à l'image récurrente de l'individu seul face à la mondialisation de la culture, La complexité culturelle accorde une large place aux approches des cadres de distribution culturelle (formes de vie, États, marchés, mouvements), à des aperçus d'économie politique de la culture qui soulignent les contraintes canalisant un flux loin d'être libre, à l'exploration des lignes de tension entre sens commun, connaissances spécialisées et discours critique. Des analyses de dynamiques micro-culturelles éclairent le rôle particulier des villes comme centres de production culturelle. Une conception distributive de la culture, socialement ancrée, oriente l'ensemble de ces considérations que la seconde partie de l'ouvrage met en oeuvre en procédant à l'étude de cas de laboratoires urbains de production culturelle (Vienne, Calcutta, San Fancisco à certains moments de leur histoire), ainsi qu'à l'étude de formes contemporaines de créolisation culturelle dans le contexte des interactions mondiales
African Americans NK04( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The African American Collection provides information on history, race relations, civil rights movement, culture and contemporary economic problems, circa 1620s to 2000s. Davis and Pinkey cover from the earliest days of slavery up to about 1970. Four documents deal with racial segregation and discrimination both prior to and immediately after the civil rights movements. Three documents feature in-depth portrayals of individual life histories, communities and families, and kinship networks and migration patterns. Two documents provide a theoretically complex discussion of race relations and opportunities in urban communities. Two recent documents address deconstructing erroneous representations of African Americans in scholarly discourse and public policy and education and popular culture. The remaining documents discuss the continuity of racial discrimination and class- and gender-based exploitation in the lives of African American women and artists
