Illegal Diasporas in African Literature and Cinema
The Afropolitan is an increasingly salient but contested figure in African literary studies. This panel focuses on alternative figures of diaspora for whom an Afropolitan identity appears beyond reach or ill-advised. The panel provides an opportunity to build on the work of Khalid Koser in the edited book, New African Diasporas (2003), and to further analysis of the representation of illegal diasporas, refugees, asylum seekers, and economic migrants in African literature and cinema.
Please send 250 word abstracts and one-page CV before March 15 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘MLA PANEL” in subject line.
