This anthology, Unraveling Gender, Race and Diaspora, brings together academicians and public intellectuals in a vigorous conversation that reimagines and expands the fields of Africana, postcolonial, feminist, gender and women s studies. In its theorizing of the intersections of difference gender, race, class, culture and location within Africa and between Africa and its Diasporas, the volume offers a more global representation of the cross cultural experiences of diasporic subjects. The volume offers critical re-assessments of dominant discourses of the diaspora and formations of the subject identities within it. By emphasizing the relevance of intra-diasporic conversations in film, literature and oral tradition, the volume comprehensively engages core concerns in black diasporic communities memory (remembering and forgetting), space/location, time, human agency, and shifting exigencies. Blending dynamic, interdisciplinary, transnational and African diasporic frameworks, this eclectic and timely volume adds richly to the discourse of cultural production and formations. Its engaging depth and breadth illuminate the complexities of race, gender, identities, histories and cultural politics, opening resourceful windows to students, scholars and the general readership. --Jude G. Akudinobi, University of California, Santa Barbara. A riveting collection of essays on the shifting constructions of women s lives and the negotiation of contested and contesting identities in Africa and its Diasporas. --Naomi Nkealah, University of South Africa, Pretoria, South Africa
