How are Western, mostly secular, societies handling religion in its increasingly pluralistic and complex forms? In Reconsidering Religion, Law, and Democracy the authors study the interaction and negotiations between religious organizations and religious citizens on the one hand, and the state, the judicial system, the media, and secular citizens on the other. Religion has become increasingly visible in contemporary society and is, more often than before, recognized as a public matter and not merely a private issue. As such it presents new challenges or opportunities to scholarly research and to society at large. The contributors to this volume shed light on what follows when expressions of religion meet different spheres of society. The authors explicitly point to the need to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the roles played by religion in society today. By presenting case studies, fresh perspectives and new questions they suggest that deeper knowledge is best achieved by further, increasingly nuanced interdisciplinary research.

This report analyses all aspects of cultural diversity, which has emerged as a key concern of the international community in recent decades, and maps out new approaches to monitoring and shaping the changes that are taking place. It highlights, in particular, the interrelated challenges of cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue and the way in which strong homogenizing forces are matched by persistent diversifying trends. The report proposes a series of ten policy-oriented recommendations, to the attention of States, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, international and regional bodies, national institutions and the private sector on how to invest in cultural diversity. Emphasizing the importance of cultural diversity in different areas (languages, education, communication and new media development, and creativity and the marketplace) based on data and examples collected from around the world, the report is also intended for the general public. It proposes a coherent vision of cultural diversity and clarifies how, far from being a threat, it can become beneficial to the action of the international community.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Sex is part of life. It would be unrealistic to expect the mass media to ignore it. Whether it causes offence or harm to the public depends critically on how it is portrayed, and on how it is used by individuals . Problemdarstellung: Sexualität war noch nie so omnipräsent wie heute erst recht in den Medien. Wenn man die mediale Verbreitung von Sexualität betrachtet, denkt man unverzüglich an Begriffe wie Überflutung, Allgegenwärtigkeit, Sexualisierung oder gar Pornografisierung. Sexuelle Reize sind aus den Massenmedien, die uns täglich allerorten umgeben, nicht mehr wegzudenken: nackte Frauen in der Werbung oder gleich auf dem Titelblatt einer Zeitung, pornografische Webseiten im Internet, der Erotikfilm im Fernsehen. Die Schlussfolgerung dessen: Die öffentliche Sphäre ist sexualisiert. Unsere Gesellschaft scheint im 21. Jahrhundert so aufgeklärt wie nur möglich; von einem Tabu kann bei dem Thema Sexualität scheinbar nicht mehr gesprochen werden. Doch ist dem wirklich so? Und vor allem: Wie sieht es aus, wenn man die Thematik auf Sexualität und Journalismus eingrenzt? Welche Rolle spielt Sexualität in der Berichterstattung der Medien und somit auch als Inhalt und nicht nur als gerne genutzt Form oder als Nachrichtenfaktor, der Aufmerksamkeit beim Rezipienten erzeugen soll? Oberflächliche Reize finden sich in medialen Darstellungen von Sexualität zur Genüge. Doch abgesehen davon stellt sich die Frage: Werden auch pikante Aspekte und strittige Themen zum Inhalt eines Artikels oder Fernsehbeitrags gemacht? Ein solches Beispiel ist ein Artikel des Magazins NEON in der Ausgabe vom Mai 2005. Darin wird über Asexualität berichtet, ein deviantes Sexualverhalten, dem weder in der Öffentlichkeit noch in den Medien viel Beachtung geschenkt wird. Doch gerade diese Berichterstattung kann beim Leser Sensibilität für das Thema schaffen und gleichzeitig Betroffenen helfen, indem auf Internetforen verwiesen und am Ende des Artikels auch eine Linksammlung angeboten wird. Der Autor Rainer Leurs schreibt: Sich als Asexueller in dieser Welt zu bewegen, das muss ein absurdes Gefühl sein: bestürmt von sexy Werbung, sexy Mode, sexy Musikvideos und 'Sex and the City'. Er meint damit: Unsere Welt ist sexualisiert. Die Medien passen sich an und bemühen sich, das Bild der sexualisierten Welt zu reflektieren, aber erzeugen auf der anderen Seite gerade durch ihre Darstellungen erst diese Sexualisierung. Die Frage bleibt also, ob es [...]

PAPERBACK ORIGINAL From an award-winning documentary photographer, the first book of its kind to portray the LGBTQ community in contemporary Poland Few in the Polish LGBTQ community could have foreseen how quickly this deeply conservative and Catholic country would change since it joined the European Union. Back in 2004, gay rights marches were banned in Warsaw and homosexuality was a taboo subject. Since then, as the economy has grown, the LGBTQ community has become more widely accepted. In OUT, award-winning Warsaw-based photographer Maciek Nabrdalik, whose work has been published in Smithsonian, L’Espresso, Stern,Newsweek, and the New York Times, takes us deep into this community. Exploring issues of identity and citizenship and taking its inspiration from the passport photo format, OUT features dozens of formal color portraits of writers, artists, and people working in a variety of occupations from across Poland. Each is accompanied by a short interview and is shaded to indicate how comfortable that person is with revealing their own sexuality publicly. Intimate and profoundly humane, OUT is a testament to the great strides that can be made in the struggle for LGBTQ rights in a short space of time—a document that will be inspiring to other nations where the queer community does not enjoy the same freedoms. OUT was designed by Emerson, Wajdowicz Studios (EWS).
