Description - Un/settled Multiculturalisms by Barnor Hesse

This anthology reconsiders the social, political and intellectual meanings of multiculturalism in the West, particularly Britain. It introduces a conceptual language for thinking about multiculturalism and casts the surrounding debates in the contexts of globalization, post-colonialism and what Barnor Hesse calls "multicultural transruptions". The contributors consider a variety of diaspora formations ranging from the Muslim Umma and Black Britain to the Chinese foodscape and Transatlantic Black sporting performances. They examine the transnational impact on how cultural differences are lived and pose questions for how we participate in and think about Western societies. The material on cultural entanglements focuses on media constructions of the "Asian Gang" in Britain, gender and sexuality in "ragga music", and the ambivalence of identities in post-apartheid South Africa.
