  • "This book explores the works of women writers and filmmakers across the African and African Diaspora world, reflecting on how the transnational sphere can serve to highlight voices that were at the margins of gender and race hierarchies. The book demonstrates how in discourse and theory Africana women are the centers of their own knowledge production and agency, as the artists and their characters point the way forward. Their multiperspectivism leads to avenues of selective mutuality and influence, to generate transformative creative work, scholarship, and practices. Writers included are Sylvia Wynter, Edwidge Danticat, Werewere Liking, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, Sefi Atta, NoViolet Bulawayo, Nnedi Okorafor, Ama Ata Aidoo, Igiaba Scego, Leonara Miano, Gisèle Hountondji, Monique Ilboudo, and Maryse Condé, as well as the filmmaker, Kemi Adetiba.Over the course of the book, the contributors critically explore and update the canon on women in the African and African Diaspora Literary sphere, highlighting their contributions to theoretical debates, and providing substantive nuance to diasporic subjectivity. This book will be of interest to scholars of African and Africana Studies, comparative literature and women and gender studies"--
