The twelvemonth 2008 saw the growing and outgrowth of assorted civilizations around the universe. This patterned advance was nevertheless affected and sometimes hampered by the assorted planetary economic and political happenings that defined the twelvemonth 2008. The beginning of 2008 witnessed elections and attendant political instability in Zimbabwe which defined the planetary political system enormously. This elections. which were characterized by allegations of set uping and foul-play caused planetary calls against the incumbent president in Zimbabwe. countenances were imposed on the state thereby directing the state deeper into economic convulsion.
These actions affected the planetary interaction of civilizations in the sense that many Zimbabweans and Africans felt that the Western universe was seeking to enforce its political civilization on Africans who enjoy their civilization to a great extent. This feeling of civilization infliction from the Western universe brought into Africa rejection of the Western civilization irrespective of the goodness of the civilization ( David. K. 72-75 ) The center of 2008 witnessed the ‘heating up’ of the most dramatic elections in the United States of America.
This American election had an huge consequence on civilization around the universe because the favourite campaigner in the election. Senator Barrack Obama. had assorted cultural backgrounds. Born to a Kenyan male parent and an American female parent. Barrack has been viewed as the ideal universe representative. His background and connexion to the Asian ethnic community. to a great extent. complements his secular representation. Consequently. this favourite campaigner for the United States presidential term. who represented assorted civilizations around the universe. emerged winning because in him. Americans and the universe felt represented in the personal businesss of the universe political relations.
This election and the subsequent win of Barrack Obama for the White House cemented the cultural diverseness of the American people and brought other foreign civilizations to fame and scrutiny. This American election and the subsequent win for Barrack Obama as President of the United States of America. went a long manner to promote and advance inter-cultural integrating around the universe through matrimony and life style ( David. K. 80-82 ) The terminal of the twelvemonth 2008 witnessed a most annihilating slack in the planetary economic system as the universe faced the recognition crunch instigated by the mortgage crisis in the United States of America.
This planetary economic melt-down led to a lessening in travel and buying power of persons. Therefore. there was a important decrease in planetary interaction thereby doing a decrease in inter-cultural interaction. The decrease in the buying power caused a slack in planetary trade which is a cardinal constituent of planetary interaction. This besides hence decreased cultural interaction on the planetary phase. The shutting of 2008 witnessed the biggest political crisis of the twelvemonth. the Middle East Crisis. This crisis has had a annihilating consequence on the planetary cultural integrating due to its of all time altering signifier of force.
Many times. the force is political with the Palestinians and the Israelites being the two attackers. Sometimes. the crisis takes a spiritual angle with the Palestinians stand foring the Muslim cabal while the Israelites represent the Jews. This Middle East crisis has hence slowed down cultural interaction from the political and the spiritual angles ( David. K. 93-96 ) Analysis of Humanistic disciplines and Culture in 2008 The twelvemonth 2008 showed the different effects on humanistic disciplines and civilization by the political. economic and spiritual occurrences around the universe.
The twelvemonth merely showed us how vulnerable planetary humanistic disciplines and civilization is to extinction. and at the same clip prosperity. thanks to the planetary economic. political and spiritual dispensation. Through political. economic and spiritual development. planetary humanistic disciplines and civilization flourished and sometimes reduced to a really low point. This fact hence poses a challenge to every homo around the universe to guarantee the flourishing of planetary humanistic disciplines and civilization by leting and keeping political. economic and spiritual stableness. The hereafter of planetary humanistic disciplines and civilization as defined by 2008 is unsure.
The hereafter lies in the picks of work forces. The right picks will take to the positive development of humanistic disciplines and civilization while the incorrect picks will take to negative developments. The hereafter is unpredictable and uncertain…it prevarications in our picks ( David. K. 100-103 ) Humanistic disciplines in Global Interaction Humanistic disciplines can play a immense function in planetary interaction. Through humanistic disciplines. experiences are shared throughout the universe. For case. tourers travel all over the universe and are welcomed by different civilizations which they end up absorbing with.
They are attracted by the alone nature of the different civilizations and manners and some end up buying trade goods from those civilizations which they take back place. This art work gives the tourers a narrative to state to their loved 1s back in their places. Therefore. through the devising and merchandising of art work. one person from one planetary finish earns a life. while others from assorted other finishs get entertained and have a narrative to portion ( David. K. 109-114 ) . Autochthonal Development of Talent
In the current planetary small town. local endowment has great potency of developing into independent industries. Different civilization and art signifiers are ever appealing. If the local endowment can be given infinite to develop and turn. the planetary market ever has room for suiting new art works thereby making employment and income for 1000000s of people around the universe who represent the assorted art and cultural backgrounds. This humanistic disciplines and cultural endowment can be developed through national humanistic disciplines and cultural exhibitions where the humanistic disciplines and civilizations are showcased to the remainder of the universe.
These exhibitions should besides develop concern systems that can back up trade and hence enable the artistes to gain a nice life. This is the lone manner to guarantee nutriment of the assorted humanistic disciplines represented by people around the universe ( David. K. 112-118 ) .
