A Fluid Sense of Self

The Politics of Transnational Identity

Reihe: Contributions to Transnational Feminism, Band 2, 2010, broschiert, 256 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-50227-8

In this era of increasing global mobility, identities are too complex to be captured by concepts that rely on national borders for reference. Such identities are not unified or stable, but are fluid entities which constantly push at the boundaries of the nation-state, thereby re-defining themselves and the nation-state simultaneously. Contemporary literature pays specific attention to internal and external notions of belonging ("Politics of Motion") and definitions of self resulting from interpersonal relationships ("Politics of Longing"). This collection looks at texts by authors who are British, American, or Canadian, but for whom a self-definition according national parameters is insufficient.

Silvia Schultermandl is assistant professor of American Studies at the University of Graz, Austria. Sebnem Toplu is associate professor of English at Ege University, Turkey.
