Overview

This volume explores the changing face of identity in the constantly shifting world of postcolonial and multiethnic contemporary Europe. The authors included in this text come from disciplines as diverse as cultural studies, anthropology, American studies, and social psychology, and the empirical case studies they explore cover terrain just as far-ranging—the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, the Basque country in Spain, and the United Kingdom, among others. Methods and materials vary from ethnographic analysis to quantitative surveys of attitudes and identity, and the introductory and closing chapters present an overview of recent trends in research on collective identity and disciplinary identity studies, respectively.
