Example text

The selection of core values and their relative importance among other values varies according to context. Thus, nineteenth-century European polities came to be marked by a profound ambiguity. On the one hand, their internal structures gradually – and not at all steadily – widened the spaces of freedom, while, on the other hand, they developed patterns of integration and exclusion that still mark contemporary Europe based on nation-states. Any conception of culture that remains bound to strong notions of shared values and homogeneous populations without systematically analyzing the shifting structure of value systems will not, as Peter Wagner convincingly argues, be able to thematize, even less contribute to overcoming, such patterns.

It expressed the victory hopes of the Allies at the start of the Second Coalition War against France, and in this personification of the nations of Europe by their caricature animals, the dominant themes were viciousness and gang warfare.

She shoulders the Danish national flag like a pike-staff; she is not belligerent, but strong and determined, and the sky behind her is darkening. In Sweden, the same romantic or cultural nationalism was reflected in the popularity of paintings glorifying the national hero, such as Gustaf Cederström’s “Bringing home the body of King Charles XII,” painted around 1900 and now in the National Museum in Stockholm.
