This edited collection will contain critical, interdisciplinary essays addressing the complexity of multicultural identity-making, politics and practices in relation to transnational and transracial adoption. Our collection aims to undo the image of a 'monolithic' Western adoption experience by exploring the particularities and commonalities of diverse adoptive countries, cultures, and contexts. We encourage essays that focus on adoption issues in places with highly contested to under-explored approaches to multiculturalism—including Europe, the Americas and the Pacific.
