Summary 'Diversity', understood in terms of culture, ethnicity, and of social stratification, is obviously a topic central to both the social sciences and cultural studies. In this context, Canada increasingly serves as a model to be critically assessed for an understanding of multinational and multicultural Europe. Taking the different debates in Canada and Europe and disciplinary discussions as a starting point, this volume brings together European and Canadian scholars from sociology, cultural studies, political sciences, philosophy, and literary studies to implement a productive dialogue about concepts of diversity and the way in which they 'travel' across the Atlantic and across the disciplines
