Note "At the beginning of the process was a conference on multiculturalism .." -- p. xi.
Summary In March 2015, a group of experts from four continents and a wide range of disciplines met with the leading African American writer Ishmael Reed in Mulhouse, France, and Basel, Switzerland. Guided by Swiss cultural and literary theorist Sämi Ludwig, and deliberately migrating back and forth across a political border in the heart of Europe, they not only listened to Reed and discussed his work, but also looked more widely at the different meanings assigned to "multiculturalism" in the United States, Europe, and other parts of the world. This volume brings together their reflections.
