Diasporic Lives

Alienation and Violence as Themes in African American and Jamaican Cultural Texts

Reihe: Afrika und ihre Diaspora, Band 9, 2010, broschiert, 224 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-10574-5

African Americans and Jamaicans share a common past of forced dispersion from their original homelands and enslavement in the Americas. The legacies of white supremacy, racism and Euro-centrism are still influential in both societies today. The conditions of alienation and violence which are represented in African American and Jamaican cultural texts are tied to the sociological development of both societies. The processes of having to prove their humanity, as cultural communities and as individuals, have caused many African diasporic people to become alienated from - and violated by - the societies they live in.
