On not speaking Chinese : living between Asia and the West by Ien Ang ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this new book, cultural thinker Ien Ang engages with urgent questions of identity in an age of globalization and diaspora. The starting-point for Ang's discussion is the experience of visiting Taiwan. Ang, a person of Chinese descent, born in Indonesia and raised in the Netherlands, found herself 'faced with an almost insurmountable difficulty' - surrounded by people who expected her to speak to them in Chinese. She writes: 'It was the beginning of an almost decade-long engagement with the predicaments of "Chineseness" in diaspora. In Taiwan I was different because I couldn't speak Chinese; in the West I was different because I looked Chinese.'" "From this autobiographical beginning, Ang goes on to reflect upon tensions between 'Asia' and 'the West' at a national and global level, and to consider the disparate meanings of 'Chineseness' in the contemporary world. She offers a critique of the increasingly aggressive construction of a global Chineseness, and challenges Western tendencies to equate 'Chinese' with 'Asian' identity." "Ang then turns to 'the West', exploring the paradox of Australia's identity as a 'Western' country in the Asian region, and tracing Australia's uneasy relationship with its Asian neighbours, from the White Australia policy to contemporary multicultural society. Finally, Ang draws together her discussion of 'Asia' and 'the West' to consider the social and intellectual space of the 'in-between', arguing for a theorizing not of 'difference' but of 'togetherness' in contemporary societies."--BOOK JACKET
The SBS story : the challenge of diversity by Ien Ang ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) is Australias multicultural and multilingual public broadcaster. Its radio and television services broadcast in more languages than any other network in the world: it is the voice of multicultural Australia. The SBS Story investigates the impact of SBS as a force in Australian media, culture and society. Using SBS as a case study, the authors investigate how other democratic countries have embraced the fact of cultural difference. Ang, Hawkins and Dabboussy explore how public broadcasters manage the changing nature of migration and multiculturalism, and ask, What is media's role and potential to address issues of difference and give voice to diverse opinions? They examine the way SBS has used the culture of difference as a resource for innovation, and how these innovations have kept it at the forefront of changes in media practice. The book does not shy away from controversy, tackling issues such as the stations encroaching commercialization, insufficient government funding, and the uproar prompted by SBSs reduction in non-English broadcasting."--Provided by publisher
Alter/Asians : Asian-Australian identities in art, media, and popular culture by Ien Ang ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The art of engagement : culture, collaboration, innovation ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During 2004-2010 C3West commissioned four Australian and international artists -- Craig Walsh, Sylvie Blocher, Ash Keating, and Jeanne van Heeswijk -- to produce art in partnership with a range of business partners in Western Sydney, including a rugby league club and two environmental and waste management companies. The resulting artworks -- embracing highly inventive processes of community participation and creative artistic skill -- are intricate showcases of what this book calls "the art of engagement". The Art of Engagement reveals the dynamics of such unique arts-business-community collaborations, while exploring their aesthetic, social and political dimensions. This collection of essays and documentation puts the C3West experiment in an international context, and invites us to rethink what contemporary art can mean in Australia while promising a rich, intelligent and delightful book."--Publisher's website
