About the Author

Damani J. Partridge is Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology and in the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan.


"Partridge shows how being included in the body politic can be a form of social control and exclusion... [P]rovides a case study for how one can look at identity politics in connection with the debates about human or national rights for citizens." Sander L. Gilman, Emory University "Full of surprisingly fresh insights that make one see the politics of the body in Germany in a totally new way... [O]pens up new horizons in conceptualizing the place of biologically non-German bodies in contemporary Germany... [S]hows that parallel processes are at work for Vietnamese, African, and Muslim immigrants and also for immigrants who first arrived to East and West Germany." Esra Ozyurek, University of California, San Diego
