Abstract:This book is a collection of case studies on diverse African diasporas in the United States, Canada and Europe. The editors mention four overarching themes underscoring the essays in the book. These are the creation of African diaspora community and institutional structures; the structured and shared relationships among African immigrants, host, and homeland societies; the construction and negotiation of diaspora spaces, and domains (racial, ethnic, class consciousness, including identity politics); and finally African migrant economic integration, occupational, and labour force roles and statuses and impact on host societies. They approach the African diaspora from a perspective that incorporates the historical, as well as contemporary constructions of diasporas, and their transnational identities. [ASC Leiden abstract]
