This collection reflects the still urgent project of
historical recuperation, as well as an examination of
literary representations and other cultural manifestations
of the Black Diaspora. Disciplinary work within the
boundaries of African American Studies has been enhanced by
more general considerations of the history of „race“ and
racism in globalized contexts. The articles assembled here
reflect recent empirical research as well as challenging
theoretical considerations. Contributions address particular
formations of racialized modernity owed to the impact of the
Atlantic slave trade and slavery, and thus broaden the
approach to the Middle Passage, to improve our understanding
of it as a constitutive transatlantic phenomenon in the
widest possible sense.
