It happens when someone adopts another culture's identifiable, tangible elements without honoring their cultural importance or significance. It includes everything from hairstyles to clothing to jewelry to musical style. Using historical context, current events, teen-friendly examples, and useful sidebars, this resource helps readers grasp the magnitude of the problem, including how they may be participating in appropriation without even knowing it. When teens better understand cultural appropriation, and become actively involved in helping reduce harm, they will be better able to connect meaningfully with other cultures.

Description : “Hamlet” by Olivier, Kaurismäki or Shepard and “Pride and Prejudice” in its many adaptations show the virulence of these texts and the importance of aesthetic recycling for the formation of cultural identity and diversity.

Focusing on a variety of aspects such as artistic strategies and genre, but also marketing and cultural politics, this volume takes a critical look at ways of adapting and appropriating cultural texts across epochs and cultures in literature, film and the arts.

A fraternity brother dons blackface as part of his Halloween costume. What do these things have in common? They are acts of cultural appropriation, the oftentimes innocent but nonetheless offensive practice of emulating the culture of a people with less power and privilege. When does appreciation cross the line to become appropriation? The viewpoints in this volume address what constitutes cultural appropriation, how it hurts those it seeks to celebrate, and how to be inspired by a culture without insulting it.
