Synopsis

The papers presented here offer a major challenge to previously conceived ideas about issues like slavery, racism, ethnic relations, nationalism, and cultural identity generating responses, critiques, revisions, counterarguments, and new perspectives. This volume is not only meant to address important matters of the past but also of the present and future as racism, ethnic relations, and cultural identity - with the attendant issues of human rights, freedom, and emancipation - will assume an ever-increasing significance in our globalised but ethically, socially, and culturally divided world. The volume is subdivided into three sections: "Racism and Nationalism" containing papers dealing with issues of racism and nationalism in a broader context, "Slavery: From Past to Present" exploring the concept of slavery in different literary genres and historical periods, "Cultural Identity and Ethnic Relations" dealing with cultural memory, nationalism, and relations between cultural and ethnic groups.
