Thursday 30 June 2005

Mircea Vultur, from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique, presents a liberal perspective on cultural dynamics in the context of globalization. He analyses the interplay of the phenomenon of the globalization with some dimensions of comtemporary cultural dynamics, including :

- the processes of communication and information,
- the question of language,
- cultural policies and the role of the state in the construction of cultural identity.

This text puts into perspective the critical discourse currently surrounding the phenomenon of globalization.
