[新新聞] 【梁國源專欄】主權、民主與全球化的矛盾
近代全球化效益深信不疑者,很難想像為何「美好世界」無以為繼,甚至催生出英國甘冒經濟大幅衰退風險,決心退歐等事件。但從著名經濟學者羅德里克(Dani Rodrik)於二○○○年提出的「世界政經運作三元悖論」(political trilemma of world economy)觀點看來,當前的國際政治亂象反倒像是一個遲來的必然,並無多大驚人之處。何謂世界政經運作三元悖論?簡單地說,就是「全球經濟整合」、「國家主權」,以及「高度直接參與的民主政治體制」,三者無法同時兼得。

Remapping Sound Studies - Franklin Humanities Institute
the first wave of sound studies produced narratives on the history of sound in modernity told from largely Northern-centric perspectives. The neglect of the global South in sound studies, and of Africa and Asia in particular, is striking. Routledge’s four-volume Sound Studies anthology—comprising 72 chapters and more than 1,500 pages (Bull 2013)—does not contain a single chapter on Africa or Asia (which together form over half of the world’s landmass and currently comprise well over 100 sovereign nation-states). The Oxford Handbook of Sound Studies (Pinch and Bijsterveld 2011) contains 23 chapters on topics ranging from Pixar and birdsong to cochlear implants and iPod culture, but Africa and Asia are absent there as well. The earlier edited collection, Hearing Cultures (Erlmann 2004), is also North-centric, the lone exception being Charles Hirschkind’s chapter on Egypt. Georgina Born’s recent edited volume, Music, Sound and Space (2013), includes just one chapter set outside Euro-America (Andrew Eisenberg’s chapter on Kenya). And Routledge’s single-volume Sound Studies Reader (Sterne 2012a) fares just slightly better: of its 45 chapters, there is just one on southern Africa (by Louise Meintjes) and two on North Africa (one by Hirschkind and an early text by Franz Fanon).
