Synopsis

The question of "identity" and "citizenship" in contemporary German society as a whole has resurfaced as an issue since unification, and the term "multicultural society" has became an important theme in the re-examination of the question of what it means to be "German," not only for citizens of the former FRG and the GDR, and for the newly re-emerging German Jewish community, but also for the foreign migrants who have lived and worked in the FRG since the early 1960s. This study discusses a selection of texts - by and about foreign migrants in the Federal Republic - in which the main characters assert their ethnic or cultural identity and/or oppositional political consciousness against that of the majority culture.
