The influence of postcolonial thought has made it a commonplace to acknowledge the
coexistence of multiple and plural forms of modernities that have led to great cultural,
political, economic and technological shifts in the twentieth and twenty first centuries.

In the contemporary globalised world, patterns of migration are aided by technology so that
movements and mobility are both physical and virtual: ‘hyper-mobility’ and ‘instantaneous
communication’, the effects of which can be seen in the exchange of ideas, languages, and
cultural and social forms. The influence of “post-national” transnationalism, characterised
by a decentring and deterritorialization, can be seen not only in fully braided economies
(EU), the internationalisation of wars (NATO), and global collective identities (ISIS) but is also
visible in creative forms within circuits of exchange that reveal the blurring of national
boundaries, the mixing of traditions, and the transformation of communities and aesthetics.

Transcultural Mo(ve)ments then includes issues of, and tracks shifts among borders,
refugees, languages, genders, genres, cultures, and between all sorts of mobilities and
interdisciplinarity, among many, many other possibilities. Since the transcultural is often
associated with a post-national age, can we still talk of distinct cultures? How do we think of
identity without collapsing it into an indistinct homogeny.
