After the Berlin Wall by Jana Evans Braziel After the Berlin Wall, Hardback (November 2011)

Artists, Performers, and Black Masculinity in the Haitian Diaspora by Jana Evans Braziel Artists, Performers, and Black Masculinity in the Haitian Diaspora, Paperback (June 2008)

Examines how Haitian diaspora writers, artists, and musicians address black masculinity through the Haitian Creole concept of gwo negs, or "big men". This work confronts the gendered, sexualized, and racialized boundaries of America's diaspora communities and openly resist "domestic" imperialism that targets immigrants, minorities, and gays.

Diaspora by Jana Evans Braziel Diaspora, Paperback (March 2008)

International migrants - uprooted from family, friends, and nation-state, and scattered across the globe - form vibrant diasporic communities. Whether through economic migration, political asylum, or corporate mobility, this type of wide scale dispersion of populations brings with it a myriad of important issues.

Race and the Foundations of Knowledge by Jana Evans Braziel Race and the Foundations of Knowledge, Paperback (February 2006)

Demonstrates the role that race has played in the formation of knowledge. This book demonstrates how race theory intersects with other bodies of knowledge by examining discursive records such as travelogues, literature, and historiography and theoretical structures such as common sense, pseudoscientific racism, and Eurocentrism.
