This anthology reconsiders the social, political and intellectual meanings of multiculturalism in the West, particularly Britain. It introduces a conceptual language for thinking about multiculturalism and casts the surrounding debates in the contexts of globalization, post-colonialism and what Barnor Hesse calls multicultural transruptions. The contributors consider a variety of diaspora formations ranging from the Muslim Umma and Black Britain to the Chinese foodscape and Transatlantic Black sporting performances. They examine the transnational impact on how cultural differences are lived and pose questions for how we participate in and think about Western societies. The material on cultural entanglements focuses on media constructions of the Asian Gang in Britain, gender and sexuality in ragga music, and the ambivalence of identities in post-apartheid South Africa.

Duress Author Ann Laura Stoler

How do colonial histories matter to the urgencies and conditions of our current world? How have those histories so often been rendered as leftovers, as "legacies" of a dead past rather than as active and violating forces in the world today? With precision and clarity, Ann Laura Stoler argues that recognizing "colonial presence" may have as much to do with how the connections between colonial histories and the present are expected to look as it does with how they are expected to be. In Duress, Stoler considers what methodological renovations might serve to write histories that yield neither to smooth continuities nor to abrupt epochal breaks. Capturing the uneven, recursive qualities of the visions and practices that imperial formations have animated, Stoler works through a set of conceptual and concrete reconsiderations that locate the political effects and practices that imperial projects produce: occluded histories, gradated sovereignties, affective security regimes, "new" racisms, bodily exposures, active debris, and carceral archipelagos of colony and camp that carve out the distribution of inequities and deep fault lines of duress today.
