Colonialism and Beyond

Race and Migration From a Postcolonial Perspective

Edited by: Eva Bischoff, Elisabeth Engel

In order to study the history of colonialism and its legacy from the perspective of the early 21st century, we have to think beyond old spatial and disciplinary boundaries. Starting from this insight, the essays in this volume explore the roles that race and migration played in the formation of (trans)national spaces and identities. They investigate topics such as citizenship, sovereignty, and racialized bodies, as well as transnational patterns of political activism and belonging, migration, the biopolitics of whiteness, and the history of humanitarian NGOs. As a result, this book makes an important contribution to ongoing debates about the current location of postcolonial studies. (Series: Periplus Studien - Vol. 17)
