Summary note
"The essays in Europe in Black and White offer new critical perspectives on race, immigration, and identity on the Old Continent. In reconsidering the various forms of encounters with difference, such as multiculturalism and hybridity, the contributors address a number of issues, including geography, politics and linguistic practice. Featuring scholars from a wide variety of nationalities and disciplinary areas, this collection of essays will speak to an equally wide readership and provide an important counter-discourse to the images of migration and racism frequently portrayed in the media.
