This volume looks at territories such as reservations, model villages and collective towns as the spatial materialization of forced assimilation and "progress". These disciplinary spaces were created in order to disempower and alter radically the behavior of people who were perceived as ill-suited "to fit" into hegemonic imaginations of "the nation" since the 19th century.Comparing examples from the Americas, Australia, North and East Africa, Central Europe as well as West and Central Asia, the book not only considers the acts and legitimizing narrations of ruling actors, but highlights the agency of the subaltern who are often misrepresented as passive victims of violent assimilation strategies.

»[Es] handelt sich um einen facettenreichen Sammelband, der spannende Analysen zu einem wichtigen Thema vereint. Er ist, ganz im Sinne von Hannahs Schlusswort, ein wertvoller Anstoß zur weiteren kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit diesen (und weiteren) Räumen und Geschichten, denn das Thema ist höchst aktuell.«Andreas Weiß, www.connections.clio-online.net, 06.09.2019
