CHURCH AND STATE IN EUROPE: A CHALLENGE FOR MULTI-CULTURALISTS
Islam is now the second or third largest religion in most Western European countries. Laurie Taylor hears how the presence of some thirteen million Muslims has begun to challenge the Continent’s historic accommodation between church and state.
Jytte Klausen, Associate Professor of Politics at Brandeis University, focuses on Denmark in order to show how the privileging of one church can have considerable negative impact on religious minorities in ways hardly noticeable to secular Christians.
DIFFERENT WAYS OF REPORTING THE WORLD
Laurie Taylor puts under the spotlight the not so dissimilar roles of anthropologists and foreign correspondents in producing a flow of information from and about other parts of the world which are part of the rhythm of our daily routine. What could the two tribes learn from each other?
Ulf Hannerz, Professor of Anthropology at Stockholm University and Marie Colvin, Foreign Affair Correspondent for the Sunday Times, compare their experiences of managing meaning across distances and contrast their different interests in reporting, representing, translating and interpreting knowledge for the enlightenment of the public.
