Über das Buch

– in englischer Sprache –

Zum Inhalt

This is a collection of thirty-nine articles that explore transcultural collisions that have occurred in the course of history and movement of human communities.

It uses the disciplines of literature, history and cultural studies to examine new thematic parameters and methodological approaches that address violent and subtle cultural confrontations between communities, re-shape identities, reconceive gender, define home, track cultural mobilities, explore popular concepts of horror and humour, examine what is beyond human, and assess what is literary studies today.

The book is divided into ten thematic sections that deal with what the critics regard as most important aspects in their new writings. The contributors include writers and scholars coming from different continents and the articles have special emphasis on the Philippines and other Asian countries such as India, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan as well as Australia and Africa. Included too are diverse contributions from Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, USA, UAE, Brazil, Fiji and Ukraine.

Even in ancient times, cultures were never homogeneous. The movement of people due to war and invasion, hunger and disease, labour opportunities, exile and the search for freedom, even the most innocuous crossing of borders such as tourism, always leave an imprint of the encounter between peoples and communities. For some, the encounter is relatively harmonious. For many others, dissimilarities often resulted in conflict or conquest.

The scholars in this collection explore the latter-- the contentious contact of cultures, the resulting frictions, and the re-shapings that follow. The collisions can be overt or covert, subtle or violent. They are represented in diverse tropes and in countless guises: The dehumanizing brutality of conquest and statehood is often justified in terms of what is good for the community in the pursuit of imperialist or nation-building goals.
