Duncum, PA, How Art Education Can Contribute to the Globalisation of Culture, Journal of Art & Design Education, 19, (2) pp. 170-180. ISSN 0260-9991 (2000) [Refereed Article]

This paper begins by defining globalisation and discussing the major issues that globalisation raises in the cultural sphere. This includes the relationships of global culture to national and local cultures, the disorientation caused by the compression of time and space, the characterisation of global culture as Americanisation, and the consumer orientation of global culture. The paper then examines the ways in which art education can contribute to these changing social dynamics. These include a celebration of place, addressing heritage and tourist issues, creating hybrid works, discussing commercial choices, examining one-world images, and creating with one-world technologies. ©NSEAD 2000.
