New Transatlantic Passages : African Immigrant Writers and Contemporary Black Literature in America

Abstract

The article examines the fictional works of first- and second-generation African immigrant writers who have recently emerged as new black voices in multiethnic American literature. The object of this preliminary study is to lay the foundations for further reflections on these new transatlantic passages, as they call for fresh thinking about the current developments in black diasporic writing and the reshaping of world literature at the outset of the twenty-first century.
Cet article porte sur les ouvrages de fiction d'écrivains d'origine africaine, émigrés aux Etats-Unis (fin du XXe-début du XXIe siècle) et contribuant à la diversité / la diversification d'une littérature américaine multiethnique. Leurs productions littéraires invitent à repenser les canons de la littérature (afro-)américaine contemporaine, et plus globalement, à redéfinir les contours d'une littérature mondiale. (publication suite au Symposium international 'Diasporas and Cultures of Migrations", Juin 2011, U. de Montpellier 3)
