Kurzbeschreibung

This book studies
the metamorphosis of the politics of home and identity amongst migrant
nationals subsequent to the end of WWII, using the Palestinian exilic displacements
as a critical tool and compass to find intersecting points of reference with
the Caribbean, Indian, African, Chinese, and Pakistani dispersions. From Sam
Selvon to Salman Rushdie and Monica Ali, Edward Said to Homi Bhabha and Stuart
Hall, the author here reroutes filiation to affiliation. The text troubles the
ideas of citizenship and national belonging; it celebrates the freedom to be
'out of place' which opens doors for and promotes rediscovery of
materials that have been repressed or pushed aside in cultural translation,
without falling into mental ghettoisation.
