Diasporic Hegemonies: Slavery, Memory, and Genealogies of Diaspora


  • Deborah A. Thomas,

  • Tina M. Campt


"Slavery, Memory, and Genealogies of Diaspora" is the first in a series of two dialogues organized by Deborah A. Thomas and Tina M. Campt as part of a project titled "Diasporic Hegemonies." In this dialogue, Jacqueline Nassy Brown and Bayo Holsey draw from their ethnographic research within Liverpool, England and coastal Ghana respectively to discuss the processes by which and places within which notions of the African diaspora are produced. They also address questions of how particular notions of diaspora are politicized, how they move between and among communities, and how they are used at specific moments in time.
