Contemporary Identity and Memory in the Borderlands of Poland and Germany now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing

9781527500150
Hardback, pp572, £70.99 / $119.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Contemporary Identity and Memory in the Borderlands of Poland and Germany by Aleksandra Binicewicz.

The book analyses issues associated with the contemporary and memory in the Polish-German borderlands – a complex, multidimensional cultural and geographic area. The first section of the book, which focuses on contemporary issues, is divided into three parts: namely, a theoretical body, records of conversations with the inhabitants of the borderlands who are engaged in social activities, and records of workshops and conversations that brought together teenage inhabitants of the borderlands. Close cooperation with the inhabitants of two borderland towns resulted in several interesting perspectives on the borderlands, which are seen as a physical space, as well as a mental, intimate, close, and sometimes frustrating space subject to micro- and macro-scale transformations. In this book, the borderlands are viewed from these two perspectives. The micro-scale, is marked out by the individual experience of the inhabitants of the borderlands, and the macro-scale by the institutional framework established for the purpose of constructing an integrated community on the border.

Book Announcement: Erasing Invisibility, Inequity and Social Injustice of Africans in the Diaspora and the Continent

Erasing Invisibility, Inequity and Social Injustice of Africans in the Diaspora and the Continent now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing

9781443894975
Hardback, pp317, £64.99 / $109.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Erasing Invisibility, Inequity and Social Injustice of Africans in the Diaspora and the Continent, edited by Omiunota N. Ukpokodu and Peter Otiato Ojiambo.

This volume engages the reader in understanding past and contemporary critical issues in African scholarship, both in the diaspora and on the continent, that have been marginalized, unexamined, and under-researched, and proposes ways to make them visible. The book is timely as it imagines and reimagines scholarship on Africans in the diaspora and on the continent. It is bold, and authentically unpacks African immigrants’ individual and collective cultural, educational, social, and institutional experiences, especially in the context of US Pk-12 schools as they navigate and negotiate transnational spaces regarding identity and shifting positionalities. The editors and contributors, who are themselves African immigrants, exemplify their spirits of Sankofa as they look back to their roots in order to give back to their “Motherland” by fighting for the visibility, equity and social justice of Africans in the diaspora and on the continent. The book proposes critical and insightful ideas that educators, researchers, policy makers, social and human services, and community leaders will find valuable. Continue reading
