Comparing Postcolonial Diasporas


This edited collection breaks new ground within the field of postcolonial diaspora studies, moving beyond the predominantly Anglophone bias of much existing scholarship by investigating comparative links between a range of Anglophone, Francophone, Hispanic and Neerlandophone cultural contexts. Ranging across the disciplines of history, sociology, literary analysis, cultural studies and the visual arts, the collection examines both the contributions and limitations of existing postcolonial diaspora scholarship, as well as developing new cross-disciplinary theoretical paradigms. Exploring a variety of geographical locations including Europe, the Americas, the Pacific and the Middle East, the collection is divided into three main sections: 'Discovering Europe' (with essays by John McLeod, Elleke Boehmer and Frances Gouda, and Siobhán Shilton); 'Nostalgia and the Longing for Home' (featuring Patrick Williams, Patria Román-Velásquez and Janet Wilson); and 'Comparative Diasporic Contexts' (with contributions from Celia Britton, Mohit Prasad and Bill Marshall), concluding with a postscript by Elizabeth Ezra and Terry Rowden.
