Displacements: Cultural Identities in Question

Edited by Angelika Bammer (NHC Fellow, 1989–90)

Colonialism; Cultural Identity; Forced Displacement

Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1994

From the publisher’s description:

Cultural displacement—physical dislocation from one's native culture or the colonizing imposition of a foreign culture—is one of the most formative experiences of our century. These essays examine the impact of this experience on contemporary notions of cultural identity from the perspectives of anthropology, history, philosophy, literature, and psychology.
