This thematic double issue of Studies in the Humanities addresses globalization as a blossoming of inclusive systems of transnational capitalism, multicultural traffic, and networking technology, which has also generated symptoms of exclusion related to migration/refuge, precarious life, and various catastrophes that debunk the holistic universality of one rainbow global village. Political dialectics has turned into the absolute antagonism between the ‘soft’ ethical inclusion of differences in the whole and the ‘hard’ ethical backlash from its excluded remnants. Multiculturalism and terrorism, neoliberalism and fundamentalism, compassion and hate, human rights and bare life interlock like two sides of the same coin.
