About this product
- DescriptionThis volume explores how we can learn to live with individual and group differences in the twenty-first century, locating this within the ambivalences of contemporary cosmopolitanism. It analyses visual, normative and cultural embodiments of difference, presenting dynamic conflicts at local sites connected through globalization and Europeanization.
