AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Focusing on the diversity of experience evoked by notions of cultural belonging ... [this essay] argues against the prevalent tendency within diaspora studies to engage in a rhetoric of cultural essentialism. The literatures of diaspora deserve to be read as documents of unique and complex cultural experiences rather than mere illustrations of archetypes.' (p.101)
