Moving Beyond Boundaries (Vol. 2): Black Women's Diasporas available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- New York University Press
Moving Beyond Boundaries makes a major contribution to our understanding of under-represented literatures by expanding our knowledge about the issues, experiences, and concerns of black women writing in different communities and in a wide range of geographic contexts. It is unique in the fact that it focuses, not only on African-American women's literature, but on black women's writing from around the world.
Covering writers from Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe, and such well-known authors as Zora Neale Hurston, Nadine Gordimer, and bell hooks, Moving Beyond Boundaries contains both creative and critical writings.
Volume two considers the area of critical writing as critical conversation, allowing writer and critic to speak with each other in the creation of the critical voice.
