Diasporic Subjectivity and Cultural Brokering in Contemporary Post-Colonial Literatures, Hardback Book

Diasporic Subjectivity and Cultural Brokering in Contemporary Post-Colonial Literatures Hardback

Edited by Igor Maver

Description

Diasporic writing simultaneously asserts a sense of belonging and expresses a sense of being 'ethnic' in a society of immigration.

The essays in this volume explore how contemporary diasporic writers in English use their works to mediate this dissonance and seek to work through the ethical, political, and personal affiliations of diasporic identities and subjectivities.

The essays call for a remapping of post-colonial literatures and a reevaluation of the Anglophone literary canon by including post-colonial diasporic literary discourses.

Demonstrating that an intercultural dialogue and constant cultural brokering are a must in our post-colonial world, this volume is a valuable contribution to the ongoing discourse on post-colonial diasporic literatures and identities.
