While German Reunification 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. While there was migration to Germany from people of color as well as from Jews and ethnic Germans from the former Soviet Union suggested that there was economic and cultural attraction to a changing society, fear was also stoked from waves of murderous attacks on new migrants and Turkish Germans who had resided in Germany for more than a generation. Minority Discourses in Germany Since 1990 explores the intersections and divergences between Black German, Turkish German and German Jewish experience. Informed by comparative approaches, the volume investigates social and aesthetic interventions into contemporary German public and political discourses on memory, racism, citizenship, immigration, and history.
