Theorizing Diaspora by Jana Evans Braziel

Book Description

This text is a collection of the critical debates in diaspora studies that offers readers an amalgamation of disparate and challenging ideas. These critical essays have shaped the trajectory and scope of diaspora studies. Conceptualizing diaspora as an emergent theoretical space, the reader presents divergent strains of multiple diasporas and marks the multinational and interdisciplinary nature of the field. It is a collection that reflects the methodologies and perspectives of scholars in anthropology, cultural studies, literary studies, postcolonial theory, queer theory and other disciplines.

Examines how Haitian diaspora writers, artists, and musicians address black masculinity through the Haitian Creole concept of gwo negs, or "big men".
