Eds. Miklós Vassányi, Judit Nagy, Mátyás Bánhegyi, Dóra Bernhardt, Enikö Sepsi. Minorities in Canada: Intercultural Investigations. L’Harmattan: Budapest, 2021. 

“The volume Minorities in Canada – Intercultural Investigations contains sixteen papers written by scholars based in Canada, Western and Central Europe. The multidisciplinary collection offers reflections on ongoing minority-related discourses in Canada ranging from philosophy through healthcare and anthropology to literary studies. Centering around two main thematic nodes, Canadian ethnic communities and Indigenous peoples, the papers included in the volume discuss various inter-and transcultural issues such as the impact of one community on the other, how policy-making has affected a particular community, communal memory, in-betweenness, identity shifts, cultural appropriation, problems and conflicts arising from inter-and transcultural encounters as well as suggestions as to how these can be reconciled.”
