  European Capital of Culture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The European Capital of Culture is a city designated by the European Union for a period of one year during which it is given a chance to showcase its cultural life and cultural development.
A number of European cities have used the City of Culture year to completely transform their cultural base and, in doing so, the way in which they are viewed internationally.
The European Cities of Culture were designated on an intergovernmental basis until 2004; the Member States unanimously selected the cities most likely to welcome the event and the European Commission granted a subsidy to the selected city each year.

His organizational model illuminates culture from the standpoint of the observer, described by three cognitive levels of organizational culture.
Note that culture at this level is the underlying and driving element of organizational culture that is often missed by most organizational behaviorists.
It is also noted that merely understanding culture at the deepest level may not be enough to institute cultural change, because the dynamics of interpersonal relationships (under often-times threatening conditions) are added to the dynamics of organizational culture in the process of instituting desired change.

Culture is a much broader concept that is inherently tied to many of the linguistic concepts taught in second language classes.
Cultural information should be presented in a nonjudgmental fashion, in a way that does not place value or judgment on distinctions between the students’ native culture and the culture explored in the classroom.
Using proverbs as a way to explore culture also provides a way to analyze the stereotypes about and misperceptions of the culture, as well as a way for students to explore the values that are often represented in the proverbs of their native culture.

Culture is everywhere: moral (read: cultural) relativism; social (read: cultural) construction; multiculturalism; cultural identity, cultural diversity, and cultural imperialism; Cultural Studies and culture wars; high culture, mass culture, and "sub altern" culture; the cultures of instant gratification, of poverty, of death, and (aspirationally at least) of life.

 Instructional Improvement Grant Proposal Feb. 1, 2000 [T r a n s c r i p t i o n s]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The Transcriptions Project in the English Dept. ("Transcriptions: Literary History and the Culture of Information") is a three-year curriculum development initiative that addresses these questions by developing an integrated suite of courses, Web sites, research-and-teaching colloquia, and other resources that use information technology to "transcribe" between literary and information cultures.
The twofold goal is to study IT as a phenomenon of culture while also simultaneously studying culture (specifically as represented in literature) as itself a kind of evolving "language tech" (the historical technologies of oral, manuscript, early-print, late-print, broadcast, and other literary cultures).
Half the emphasis of the courses created by Transcriptions, therefore, are on the contemporary culture of information and the other half on the cultures of earlier language technology (with some courses spanning from the parchment past to the WWW present, "from scroll to screen").

 The Chronicle: 11/17/2000: Pop Culture's Lists, Rankings, and Critics
First of all, although there are legions of crabs, cranks, and curmudgeons who proclaim that all popular culture is worthless garbage and/or responsible for crime, violence, short attention spans, and disrespect for elders, nobody who knows anything about popular culture has so simple a relationship to the stuff.
Academic modes of cultural criticism, by contrast, are rarely explicitly evaluative (and the exception of that famous outlier, Harold Bloom, only proves the rule).
But it does mean that people who call themselves professional critics of popular culture should acknowledge that many millions of amateur critics of popular culture -- also widely referred to as "consumers" -- experience it partly by reading (and taking issue with) popular-culture criticism of popular culture.
