Growing up as an American of Asian descent, when someone discussed the “two cultures”, I assumed they referred to “East meets West”, with China representing the East, and California representing the West (plz forgive me…). Later, I learned of other pairings. There were the two cultures dividing the university — the sciences and the humanities. And there was Islam versus Christianity.
Since the recent U.S. presidential election, I’ve been reminded of yet another juxtaposition of two cultures, humorously represented by some maps of North America.
