Complexions of Race: The African Atlantic reveals the ways in
which conceptions of race have informed – and sometimes
over-determined – readings of American experience. The first section is
concerned with the geography of racial identity, with race, place, and
with mapping. The second explores the way racial identities are
constructed, reconstructed, or enforced through performance. The final
section explores the way literary forms, generic constructions, linguistic
strategies, and critical practices construct, re-construct, or reposition
identities assigned or claimed on the basis of race.
