“The very word culture means ‘place tilled’ in Middle English, and the same word goes back to Latin colere, ‘to inhabit, care for, till, workship’. To be cultural, to have a culture, is to inhabit a place sufficiently to cultivate it – to be responsible for it, to respond to it, to attend to it caringly. Where else but in particular places can culture take root?”
