5.4 Inclusion and exclusion

Contemporary Europe is, like that of earlier times, divided on several counts and reflects the continuing existence of several major identities. Individuals and groups invariably have several, overlapping or nested, identities at the same time. But there is also a hierarchy of different identities, with some groups having preferential access to particular European values and resources and others being partly or wholly excluded from them. Contemporary patterns of inclusion and exclusion

1.1 The WTO

The Ministerial Declaration adopted by WTO members at Doha on 14 November 2001 fails to address the most pressing needs either of the poorest countries or of the world's most vulnerable communities. This means that the people who most need a share in global prosperity are still those least likely to obtain it.

Knowledge workers and the need for 'seduction'
Knowledge workers of the future may not respond to traditional management models of 'command and control', says Professor Arnoud De Meyer, Director of Cambridge Judge Business School. Instead, they need to be seduced! His 'Collaborative Leadership' model supports the use of 'communities' of people 'co-acting' without hierarchy to successfully solve the complex and interconnected problems the world faces.

Pablo Garcia - A Brief History of Drawing Machines, Since 1425
Mechanized drawing existed long before computers. Methods for automating drawing—especially drawing from life—appeared simultaneously with the earliest descriptions of constructing linear perspective. What does this long quest for computed drawing tell us about our relationship with technology? What does this mean for the presumed novelty of the computer? What does it mean to be "virtual"? ___ Pablo Garcia is Assistant Professor in the Department of Contemporary Practices at the School of

3.4 Showing a good grasp of ideas

To show your grasp of the ideas you have been studying you have to express them for yourself, in your own words. Your tutor will certainly be looking out for signs that you understand the centrally important issues. For example, Philip showed that he understood the significance of Ellis's point about women's loss of a household management role. But he was very vague about the effects this had on women's lives in the countryside, which suggests he hadn't really sorted out that part of h

1.1 Understanding scale diagrams

Plans of houses and instructions for assembling shelves, etc., often come in the form of scale diagrams. Each length on the diagram represents a length relating to the real house, the real shelves, etc. Often a scale is given on the diagram so that you can see which length on the diagram represents a standard length, such as a metre, on the real object. This length always represents the same standard length, wherever it is on the diagram and in whatever direction.
