9789042032286: Hybrid Cultures - Nervous States: Britain and Germany in a (Post)Colonial World. (Cross/Cultures)

While cultural diversity and hybridity have often been celebrated, they also challenge traditional concepts of national and cultural identity - challenges which have caused considerable anxiety. Various disciplines have often investigated the impact of cultural hybridity, multiculture, and (post)colonialism in relative isolation and with a tendency towards over-theorization and loss of specificity. Greater interdisciplinary cooperation can counter this tendency and encourage sustained comparisons between different former empires and across language boundaries. This volume contributes to such developments by combining contributions from history, English and German studies, cultural geography, theatre studies, and film studies; by covering both the colonial and the postcolonial period; and by looking comparatively at two different (post)colonial contexts: the United Kingdom and Germany. The result is productive dialogue across the distinct colonial and migration histories of the UK and Germany, which brings out divergent concepts of cultural difference - but, importantly, without neglecting similarities and transnational developments. The interdisciplinary outlook extends beyond political definitions of identity and difference to include consumer culture, literature, film, and journalism - cultural and social practices that construct, represent, and reflect personal and collective identities. Section I discusses the historical and contemporary role of colonial experience and its remembrance in the construction of national identities. Section II follows on by tracing the reflections of (post)coloniality and twentieth-century migration in the specific fields of economic history and consumer culture. Section III centres on recent debates about multiculture and national/cultural identity in politics, literature, and film.422

Review:

"Hybrid Cultures - Nervous States" provides a timely and challenging theoretical and empirical space for re-mapping European imperialism(s) as a transnational event, and for a comparative analysis of the multiple and diverse postcolonialisms that have developed out of it. - Carla Sassi, "Universita di Verona, Italy," in: "The European English Messenger" 22.1 (2013), pp. 85-6"
