Black Canadian Literature and the Construction of Cultural Memory - Routledge Research in Postcolonial Literatures (Hardback)Pilar Cuder Dominguez (author)
- We can order this
In her new book, Pilar Cuder Dominguez examines the construction of cultural memory in contemporary Canadian writing by black authors, identifying the tensions between the national imaginary and the transnational trajectories of the African diaspora. Black Canadian Literature and the Construction of Cultural Memory argues against the absence of Canada from the geography of the black Atlantic, proposing instead that black Canadian authors are engaged in making visible their historical contribution to the construction of the country as well as in exploring their connectedness to other black diasporic communities.
