Europe in Black and White (Book)

Immigration, Race, and Identity in the ‘Old Continent'

The essays in Europe in Black and White offer new critical perspectives on race, immigration and identity on the Old Continent. In reconsidering the various forms of encounters with difference, such as multiculturalism and hybridity, the contributors address a number of issues, including the cartography of postcolonial Europe, its relation to the production of 'difference' and 'race' and national and identity politics and their dependence on linguistic practices inherited from imperial times. Featuring scholars from a wide variety of nationalities and disciplinary areas, this collection will speak to an equally wide readership.
