This book of scholarly articles examines the literary articulations of diaspora and the creative construction of memories, identities and cultures in a transnational context. Each chapter calls attention to the experience of diaspora which often encompasses negotiating hyphenated identities, hybrid languages and cultures, memories of 'home,' traversing many boundaries, both spatial and emotional, and the creation of multiple 'homes' leading to mixed feeling of loss and gain, and shifts between a sense of location and homelessness. The chapters elaborate on the work of contemporary leading scholoars within the context of diaspora. Taken together, the essays examine diasporic manifestations and writing from Belgium, Brazil, Canada, the Caribbean, China, Haiti, Japan, Mozambique, Nigeria, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and provide a critical examination of literature in multiple genres including fiction, poetry and memoirs.
