The Turkish turn in contemporary German literature : toward a new critical grammar of migration by Leslie A Adelson( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Challenging the commonplace that suspends migrants "between two worlds," The Turkish Turn casts a curious eye to complex cultural relations and literary novelties wrought by Turkish migration to Germany. At interpretive and historic crossroads involving dialogue and storytelling, genocide and taboa, and capital and labor in the 1990s, this book illuminates far-reaching imaginative effects that literatures of migration can engender. In critical conversation with Arjun Appadurai, Seyla Benhabib, Homi Bhabha, Rey Chow, Andreas Huyssen, Dominick LaCapra, Doris Sommer, and many others, Adelson probes history and aesthetics as surprisingly twinned indices of national and global transformation at the millennial turn."--Jacket

Ethnic Europe : mobility, identity, and conflict in a globalized world by Roland Hsu( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ethnic Europe examines the increasingly complex ethnic challenges facing the expanding European Union. Essays from eleven experts tackle such issues as labor migration, strains on welfare economies, the durability of local traditions, the effects of globalized cultures, and the role of Islamic diasporas, separatist movements, and threats of terrorism. With Europe now a destination for global immigration, European countries are increasingly alert to the difficult struggle to balance minority rights with social cohesion. In pondering these dilemmas, the contributors to this volume take us from theory, history, and broad views of diasporas, to the particularities of neighborhoods, borderlands, and popular literature and film that have been shaped by the mixing of ethnic cultures."--Jacket

Citing Sten Nadolny's novel "Selim oder Die Gabe der Rede" (1990), Adelman traces the history of the German/Turkish opposition in Germany and Europe, then reflects on this in light of the struggle to define the new German identity and the role of Turkey in the European community since the reunification. Parallels to other binary oppositions, primarily the Nazi/Jew polarity, are raised. Moderator is John Borneman, professor of anthropology, Cornell
