European/Russian New Cultural Mixing:

 

 

Chapters 5 & 6 of Cities of the World describes in detail the European and Russian cities of London, Paris, Barcelona, Oslo, Berlin, Bucharest, Moscow, St Petersburg, Vladivostok, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Norilsk, and Kazan.  Please see the maps at the beginning of each chapter.  Note that the textbook does not include Russia with the Asian countries (Chapters 9, 10 &11).

 

In Chapter 5, the author states, “Cities of the EU {the European Union} form part of an international trading bloc that contains nearly half a billion people.”   And that “the {post-WWII} demand for low-wage labor in Western Europe has meant immigration has gradually produced new cultural mixes in the largest cities.”  “The presence of significant numbers of foreign workers and their families has generated problems.”  Chapter 6 tells us that Russia has also experienced cultural mixing, especially since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.  “The early post-Soviet period exposed many {Russia} cities to increased poverty, economic collapse, and restructuring, as well as to large inflows of refugees from more troubled parts of the former Soviet Union.”  What kinds of problems have resulted in this European/Russian new cultural mixing?

 

 

  1. Go to National Geographicat: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2012/03/marseille/dickey-text.

Click on “Feature Article” and read the 2-page article entitled “Marseille’s Melting Pot”.

 

National Geographic may block online access to the article.  I have copied the article onto the end of this assignment sheet for your convenience.

 

 

  1.  Write a 4-page paper answering the following questions.  Additional research will be necessary to answer some of these questions.

 

 

  • Where is Marseille?  (2 points)

 

  • Europe is experiencing cultural mixing and many of Marseille’s recent immigrants are from the Muslim-world.  The far-right politicians are worried that Marseille will eventually find its women required to wear burkas.  Is this likely to happen?  Why?  (5 points)

 

  • Is racism present in Marseille?  (3 points)

 

  • Do you think that racism is present in the rest of Europe?  Explain your thoughts.  (2 points)
  • Why does the mayor of Marseille not know how many of his people are of Arab or African descent?  Why does he not know the religion, race or ethnicity of city’s citizens?  Is this common throughout Europe?  (5 points)

 

  • Why has the Grand Mosque of Marseille not been built?  What are the most recent developments on the Grand Mosque of Marseille?  (5 points)
