Migrants and Cultural Memory: The Representation of Difference

Title

Migrants and Cultural Memory: The Representation of Difference

Description

This volume explores the discourses and representations that have circumvented the image that is the Traveller, the Roma (Gypsy) and migrant Other . It is generally acknowledged that the globalisation and mass-media dissemination which characterise the current era have overseen a range of complex socio-cultural forces, many of which have blurred the once-reified borders of the post-Enlightenment, modern , nation-state. Nowhere is this more evident than in the case of cultural diasporas and traditionally - nomadic groups such as Travellers, Roma and other migrant cultures. This book points to the ongoing reconfiguration of once-dominant cultural narratives and explores the manner whereby aspects of the migrant experience are themselves echoed in the increasingly hybrid and diverse discourses that characterise Western countries of the present-day.
