Acerca de


"A collection of essays, Cultures in Movement addresses important literary and cultural issues, such as memory, hybridization, identity, cultural coherence, globalization. It joins Western (Europe, the US, and Brazil) and Eastern (China, Korea, Japan, India, and Pakistan) references, moving a step beyond widely used notions - traveling cultures, third space, liminality - and suggests that cultural exchanges and migrations are effective displacements of cultures, and not only voyages of cultural fragments or reconstructions of cultural data. The cultural migrations, either of anonymous people or of writers, ultimately commit the individual to an 'art' of identity, and require collective and individual strategies which are often to be found in literary works. Cultures in Movement offers remarkable insights into the tension between native cultural heritages and new cultural settings." Jean Bessiere, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Paris III La Sorbonne Nouvelle "A wide ranging exploration of the impact of migration, diasporic life and postmodern politics on cultural identity, this volume draws broadly on historical and literary analysis and political theory to shed new light on how we negotiate meaning in challenging times. [...] Ranging from studies of Nigerian and Tibetan refugees to the struggles of French Protestants in 19th century Quebec, from critical readings of Toni Morrison's Home to Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, this broad collection of essays interrogates the meaning of identity for those who migrated or those who struggle to find a place in their native land. [...] The historical, literary and political analyses in this volume by an impressive, international group of scholars open up a wealth of insight into how both natives and diasporic peoples negotiate their cultural identity." Charles R. Strain, DePaul University, Co-editor of Religious and Ethical Perspectives on Global Migration
