Readings and ProjectseBook - 2011
This volume brings together contributions from various disciplines in the humanities exploring a variety of cultural, social and political configurations produced by the African presence in Europe, and attempting to consolidate a comparative framework for the study of contemporary black literatures and identities across different national and linguistic contexts. From the circumstances of black students in Russia to the recovery of a forgotten African identity in the Canary Islands, from the specificities of Portuguese postcoloniality to the representations of Africans in Iceland, the essays collected here provide a wide spectrum of research on African Diasporas in Eastern, Western, Southern and Northern Europe offering insights into previously little explored areas.
