Negotiating Multiple Identities in a Globalized Postcolonial World
Edited by Madeleine Laurencin and Sneharika Roy

This volume presents the increasing contingency of the concepts of “inside” and “outside” when exploring identity in postcolonial literature. The authors underline the productivity of a non-essentialist stance of the “in-between” in essays spanning an array of geographical areas, ranging from Nigeria to India, the Caribbean to New Zealand, Turkey to the U.S. By addressing issues as varied as terrorism and diaspora, metonymic tropes and postmodern camp, and hospitality and hybridity, each contributor makes a context-specific case in favor of more unstable definitions of selfhood, shaped by multiple identities, to finally reach towards the alternative horizons of the beyond.
