  18. 18. Matthew Arnold 
 Culture and Anarchy, 1869 • Central Victorian era ethos • Culture represents “the best which has been thought and said in the world" • High culture vs. anarchy • Neoplatonic ideal • "beauty," "intelligence," and "perfection" • ‘whiteness’ as non-ethnic
  19. 19. 20th Century View of Culture • Raymond Williams – cultural critic, marxist • Essay: "Culture is Ordinary" 1958 • culture isn't just the "best that has been thought and said," but rather that "culture is ordinary, in every society and in every mind."
  20. 20. Raymond Williams "forced the first important shift into a new way of thinking about the symbolic dimensions of our lives. Thus, 'culture' is wrested from that privileged space of artistic production and specialist knowledge [e.g. "high culture”], into the lived experience of the everyday. ” Moving from High Culture to Ordinary Culture, 1958 (Gray and McGuigan 1). 26
  21. 21. Raymond Williams • “Culture is ordinary: that is the first fact. Every human society has its own shape, its own purposes, its own meanings. Every human society expresses these, in institutions, and in arts and learning. • A culture has two aspects: – the known meanings and directions, which its members are trained to; – the new observations and meanings, which are offered and tested.”
  22. 22. Appadurai • Culture as: • relationality • dissensus • weak boundaries • recognition (Charles Taylor) • voice • agency • partnership • development
  23. 23. Isaiah Berlin • Multicultural societies necessitate: – Value pluralism – non-equivalence of values
  24. 24. The Aga Khan Centre for Pluralism Don Mills • Pluralism is a set of practices and outcomes as well as a set of intentions – active pluralism – positive pluralism

  43. 43. capacity development • The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) defines capacity development as the process through which individuals, organisations, and societies obtain, strengthen, and maintain the capabilities to set and achieve their own development objectives over time. • The United Nations Disaster Risk Reduction Office (UNISDR) defines capacity development in the DRR domain as the process by which people, organizations and society systematically stimulate and develop their capability over time to achieve social and economic goals, including through improvement of knowledge, skills, systems, and institutions - within a wider social and cultural enabling environment.
