As a Special Issue in Moderna Språk, the volume collects eight essays and an introductory paper that all focus on demythologizations of cultural politics. What could be identified as the watershed of the contributions included is the fact that there are no homogeneous cultures and that all forms of localisms are fantasies or collective fictions of homogeneity. This is articulated differently and carried across a variety of thresholds in the contributions whose analyses of cultural production include translation, cuisine, media, water writing, punk literature, history, urban studies and protest art as well as more theoretically focused deconstructions of frames of capture that cultural imaginaries rely on. Diversity of material in relation to the elusive concept of culture and the question of its limits was significant for the volume and its overall concerns and, although only eight studies are included, they are all appropriate in terms of their geographical and imaginative focus. They all represent the general movement of elision and disarticulation of bodies and totalities that are always presupposed, not only in essentialisms and the racialized rhetoric blowing across the volatile terrain of contemporary politics but also in the liberal discourses of cultural pluralism, tolerance and multiculturalism. It is this general disarticulating movement across a variety of cultural expressions that provides a departure point for the volume and that contributes to the integrity of its claims.
