Article excerpt

The idea for this book arose from discussions within an interdisciplinary research group focusing on transculturality at Dalama University in Falun, Sweden. The editors and some of the contributors are active within this group, while other contributors are based at universities in Asia, Europe, and North America. The editors are grateful to members of the research group who have not contributed to this volume, but nonetheless enriched it through their insightful comments and ideas. The research area on Culture, Identity, and Representation at Dalama University granted funding which made the realization of this volume possible. We also wish to express our thanks to Gordon Collier, co-editor and technical editor of the Cross/Cultures series.
