wondrous creatures, some are based on contemporary popularculture (from the latest animated or comic hero films) and others might be based on the familiar worlds of five-year-olds, with parents, siblings and other family members appearing as the leading characters. Once the story is finished, the workshop ends with a few concluding exercises. This includes a routine to ‘wash off’ the story, showering away the varying roles the child will have played, a group sharing of their favourite moments of the day and then a final song. In most Speech Bubbles sessions, one child
is connecting what are often termed
‘macro’ processes of state formation, colonialism and geopolitics with
processes of the everyday and the mundane (Legg 2010; Guillaume
2011; Smith 2012). Once we start exploring the joining up of processes
and exploring what is connected up in the meeting of family and borders,
we can explore the different social and political sites in which power
is reproduced. Here I am interested in examining how seemingly disparate
processes, such as popularculture, exhibitions, images, narratives, novels
and emotions, work to reform and

While south-east (and eastern) Europe has seen less migration from outside Europe (and that is not the same as no migration), other bonds tie it into the global racial order. These include the fantasies and desires of colonial exoticism, legible in the region's contemporary and historic popularculture, and the transnational imaginative circuits along which globalised popular entertainment travels; histories of people of colour who

This links, of course, to a larger debate over ‘popular’ culture, and
to the extent to which the categories ‘popular’ and ‘elite’ (and the
hierarchy of taste they assume) are themselves produced by the criticism that claims to be only describing them. It may be, however, that
it is not only modern academic judgements that are at issue here,
because the kinds of implicit distinctions and hierarchies being drawn
in the twentieth century surely mirror practices from the fifteenth.

-war Britain (CCCS 1982; Gilroy 1987; Hall et al 1978). Much of this
work has, in turn, centred on popularculture in general, and popular
music in particular (Gilroy 1987: 117–35, 153–222; Hall 1992a; Hebdige
1979, 1987a; Jones 1988).
This chapter concerns itself with the ways in which Britain’s multiethnic margins have been handled in British cultural studies, and particularly that strand associated with the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary
Cultural Studies. Taking popular music as a case study, it explores the
field’s reception of immigrant-descended cultural
towards the forms and narratives of
popularculture (not least, by documentary filmmakers like Lanzmann) to make
certain of Nora’s observations resonate in theories that suggest an
