Thinking Beyond Boundaries: Researching Ethnoheterogenesis in Contexts of Diversities and Social Change

Guest Editors: Mathias Bös, Nina-Clara Tiesler & Deborah Sielert

The study of societal change and ethnic relations has been a core pursuit in the Social Sciences, both in the past and in the present, especially – though not exclusively – in historical contexts marked by heightened migration and diversification. This special issue aims to refine the theoretical understanding of social and cultural processes regarding the formation of ethnicities and ethnic diversity (Yancey et al 1976, Bös 2010).
