Kashmiris consider themselves Pahari

Culture, society, migration.

The anthology works out the contribution of reflexivity to the understanding of the relationship between culture, society and migration on the basis of three focal points: 1. Politics of cultural difference 2. Transnational perspectives 3. Ethnicity and diversity. For this purpose, authors with different disciplinary backgrounds from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the USA are brought together. The focus is on the relationship between the intellectual crisis, which has captured the previous basic concepts of integration and migration research, and the development of new thematic cuts, theoretical concepts and research approaches.
