La transculturalite constitue une nouvelle facon de concevoir les cultures, c'est-adire non plus comme des ilots distincts, mais plutot comme des reseaux interactifs de sens et de pratiques. Ces identites transculturelles qui n'entrent pas aisement dans le seul moule d'une nation ou d'une ethnie abondent particulierement dans les Ameriques, par exemple les Chicanos, les Franco-Ontariens, les Creoles et les immigrants de deuxieme et de troisieme generation. De Quebec a l'Argentine, cet ouvrage se penche sur ces identites qui se construisent au carrefour de la similitude et de la difference. Transculturality is a new way of viewing culture that sees cultures not as separate islands that are easily differentiated from one another, but as connected and interacting webs of meaning and practice. The Americas in particular offer many examples of transcultural identities that do not fit easily into one national or ethnic mold: Chicanos, Franco-Ontarians, Creoles, and second and third generation immigrants. From Quebec to Argentina, this volume explores these identities which create themselves in a space between sameness and difference.
