Explore Taiwan’s Unique Themed Restaurant Culture Smithsonian Magazine

Globalisation. food and foodways …. Anthony Bourdain visited a restaurant in Singapore where the theme is surgical — globalisation, consumerism, and saturation — in an era where everything material and virtual are over-saturated, shock is the only way to get attention. i myself prefer the quiet and simple and slow — the time tested and the familiar and the familial. i suspect part of the anger and anxiety is coming from being bombarded with shock-attention grabbing manipulation all the time. which reminds me of two recent articles, about doctors prescribing “nature” — go for a hike, go meditate in a forest — as medicine; and the longstanding Japanese practice of immersing oneself in nature. of course the nature of globalisation is that somewhere somehow this will turn viral, become a “must do” …. books and websites and advice columns will appear about the right and wrong way to “do” nature, and then before you know it, a billion dollar multinational industry will appear — nature coaching, nature tours, products to use while encountering nature, etc. Professor Liang

Capturing Optimism in Photographs of Chinatowns Around the World Hyperallergic

Globalisation. next phase of class is an experiment in balancing story-telling, art, and research. this brief article is a good example — in it you will find many elements we have already discussed, food, foodways, migration, social-economic, race, identity, collective memory …. balanced with storytelling, and beautiful art.
