Transcultural Imaginings offers an analysis of the multifarious manifestations of Otherness, which, though seemingly dichotomous, actually form a complex network of oppositions and interactions. The book explores the transcultural visions of American, Bulgarian, Canadian, French, and Pakistani writers expressing the complexities of cultural transformations in these liquid times. Encountering others within the context of facts and fictions about migration and terrorism, and from the perspective of transculturalism, cultural translation, and Julia Kristeva’s psychoanalytic reading of alterity, allows for the recognition and the acceptance of the Other within.
