Example text

It is an invisible multinationalism that reminds us of how partial national debates about culture actually are. Metaphor Running through all these discussions about culture, how to define it and how to describe it, it has been taken for granted that culture is there to be defined. We know, somehow, that we do things differently from others, yet the same as some, and that the patterns of this similarity and difference are not smooth. The barrier to our conceptual understanding, though, is the failure to recognise that culture is a metaphor and not a descriptor.

Wikan argues that if we say it is acceptable for some women to be circumcised, for example, because it is ‘their culture’, although genital mutilation is forbidden under Norwegian law, then we are suggesting that people with ‘other culture’ are less fully citizens, and subject to different moral standards. For Gullestad, these statements change the scope of the term ‘culture’ in Norwegian. Culture (or ‘kultur’) relates to the arts, to ways of life and to patterns of social action, and is contrasted with nature, as in English, but the term is ambiguous in terms of value.

The barrier to our conceptual understanding, though, is the failure to recognise that culture is a metaphor and not a descriptor. All our models and discourses attempt to establish new metaphors even as we think of them as better conceptualising what culture really is. Furthermore, in planning studies, attempts to understand culture almost always incur a normative desire to resolve cultural differences, to disempower them, to take away the sting in the differential tail. Planners’ desires have been directed towards resolving conflict, and often this desire over-rides the need to understand the meaning of conflict itself.
