“The strengths of the volume are based in the depth and breadth of the analyses…The chapters function as stand-alone analyses. At the same time, they share a commitment to reading, writing, and thinking across and beyond the borders of white Germanistik…Each contributor is carefully and differently attuned to the need to decolonize German studies from a spectrum of positions, with reference to a growing archive of creative, performative, and political interventions from German-speaking and polylin-gual Europe.” • German Studies Review


While German unification promised a new historical beginning, it also stirred discussions about contemporary Germany’s Nazi past and ideas of citizenship and belonging in a changing Europe. Minority Discourses in Germany Since 1990 explores the intersections and divergences between Black German, Turkish German, and German Jewish experiences, with reflections on the evolving academic paradigms with which these are studied. Informed by comparative approaches, the volume investigates social and aesthetic interventions into contemporary German public and political discourse on memory, racism, citizenship, immigration, and history.
