The first volume of the two-volume book publication entitled "Multiculturalism, Conflict and Belonging", which stems out of the four-day international conference under the same title organized by Interdisciplinary.Net at Mansfield College, Oxford University, in September 2012, aims not only at exploring the concepts of "identity", "difference" and "belonging" from a theoretical perspective, but more importantly at relating them empirically to multicultural contexts that shed a better light on the concepts in question. Both volumes are composed of chapters under various themes that provide an analytical analysis on how individuals choose and shift from one identity to the other as well as how they voluntarily and involuntarily belong to one or the other group thus shaping the very fabrics of a multicultural environment. This first volume entitled "Identity, Difference and Belonging" is composed of nine chapters that are divided under two main themes, namely: (1) Making and Negotiating Identities: Education, Religion and Culture; and (2) Making Identities: Cultural Representations.
