About the series
This series will explore literary and cultural texts emerging from contexts in which majority/minority power dynamics operate, in the light of debates about contemporary multiculturalism. It will analyse texts marked by, or inscribing, a disequilibrium of power and/or cultural capital – such as the relations between majority white and BME communities in Britain and other countries of the West – addressing the experiences, issues and anxieties arising from the perceived clash of ideas and values. Its aim is to develop a collective body of scholarship offering new insights on literature produced by and about diasporic and minority communities that is situated in a contemporary landscape where notions of multicultural tolerance have been challenged by political and populist discourses at best wary of, and at worst directly hostile to, multiculturalism.
Series editors: Amina Yaqin, Peter Morey, Rehana Ahmed, Claire Chambers, Anshuman Mondal and Stephen Morton
