9780739129708: Diasporic Subjectivity and Cultural Brokering in Contemporary Post-Colonial Literatures

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.

About the Author:

Igor Maver is professor of English in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia.

Review:

Diasporic Subjectivity and Cultural Brokering in Contemporary Post-Colonial Literatures should prove to be a central text for university courses in world literature in English and post-colonial critical theory. Focusing on writing that reflects the migrations of huge populations across the globe, the internationally recognized authors of these essays provide astute insights into the questions of identity and subjectivity within the framework of contemporary cultural continuities and disjunctions. Professor Maver has selected an excellent group of essays, and his fine introduction nicely situates them within the major concerns of post-colonial studies. (Sydney J. Kaplan, University of Washington)

This collection of critical essays represents a wide-ranging and compelling challenge to accepted post-colonial inscriptions of transcultural experience in the contemporary world. (J.A Wainwright, Mc Culloch Emeritus Professor Dalhousie University, Halifax McCulloch Emeritus Professor, Dalhousie University, Halifax)
