- Diasporic immigrant literature as a political thought is not equal to “multiculturalism”, which is not a political antidote for coordinating minorities and majorities. Taking Jeffrey Eugendies’s Middlesex as an example, diasporic immigrant culture is full of paradoxes, among them there are “identity politics” and “politics of difference”, which leads to the situation that the mainstream culture can’t accommodate the immigrant culture because of the differences between cultures and different recognition of identity. Therefore, the best and possible way to solve this problem is cosmopolitanism.
