The text is drawn from a work in progress, tentatively entitled The Culture Wars in Translation. The book will explore the various ways in which American, Brazilian, and French intellectuals have formulated the critical race and multicultural debates and what we can learn from these diverse formulations. The debates, we argue, must be seen in transnational terms, within a relational framework that transcends the confines of single national geographies. And while the postcolonial debates have tended to privilege the Anglophone world, we hope to shift attention to Latin America and Europe – and, specifically, to Brazil and France.
