Transmediterranean: Diasporas, Histories, Geopolitical Spaces
Peter Lang, 2010 - History - 217 pages
This book offers a unique mapping of Mediterranean cultures and histories in transnational contexts. A diverse collection of diasporic scholars stage a critical examination of transmediterranean subjects across a broad spectrum of geopolitical spaces that encompasses India, Greece, Palestine, Sudan, Australia, the Netherlands, Italy and Libya. Focusing on the transnational dispersions and heterogeneous embodiments of Mediterranean cultures, this book examines how these cultures, geopolitical spaces and subjects are caught within flows of exchange, contestation and reconfiguration. Working in the interstices of global formations, the essays in this volume proceed to articulate transmediterranean affiliations that challenge the borders and limits of the nation-state.
