This book positions the identities that African ZmigrZs negotiate in transnational migration. It seeks to investigate the structure and modalities of the broader social contexts and parameters underpinning how these identities are constructed and rationalized.

Their migratory identities are structured to finding solutions to ameliorate the myriad of pressing issues facing Africa.

Tri-level Identity Crisis by Tapiwa N. Mucherera,Chris Kiesling,Anne Kiome Gatobu Summary

This text captures the profound unacknowledged crisis that is unique to children of first-generation immigrants, by virtue of their being caught in a world of their parents' culture of origin and their social experience in the United States. The book makes the case for three levels of adolescent crisis unique to this population, namely, the general developmental crisis experienced by all adolescents as articulated by developmental theories; the cultural identity crises experienced by ethnic minority persons as they encounter the layered racialization of American history; and, finally, the unique crisis that arises from conflicting cultural values and morals when first-generation immigrant parents, wanting to preserve native values, clash with their children, who seek belonging in the Western context in which they currently reside. The book traces the psychological, emotional, and social roots of the crisis. The authors, representing immigrants from different continents, portray the unique, ethnic minority challenges they encounter in coming to the US, exemplifying further the tri-level crisis. Finally, the book offers ways that parents can be proactive in helping their children navigate the potential tri-level crisis through ITAV (It Takes a Village) camps and family palavers.

The New African Diaspora in the United States by Toyin Falola,Adebayo Oyebade Summary

Fast growing in population, African immigrants in the United States have become a significant force, to the point that the idea of a new African diaspora is now a reality. This thriving community has opened new arenas of scholarly discourse on Black Atlantic history beyond the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its legacies. This book investigates the complex dynamic forces that have shaped, and continue to shape, this new diaspora. In eleven original essays, the volume examines pertinent themes, such as: immigration, integration dilemmas, identity construction, brain drain, remittances, expanding African religious space, and how these dynamics impact and intersect with the African homeland. With contributors from both sides of the Atlantic that represent a diverse range of academic disciplines, this book offers a broad perspective on emerging themes in contemporary African diasporan experiences. The book will be of interest to scholars and students of African and African-American Studies, Sociology, and History.

La Condition noire by Pap NDIAYE Summary

Exploits des sportifs de haut niveau, émeutes en banlieue, lutte contre le racisme et les discriminations, mouvement associatif : depuis une dizaine d’années, les Noirs vivant en France métropolitaine sont apparus si visiblement sur la scène publique nationale qu’on peut parler aujourd’hui d’une « question noire » française. Plusieurs livres d’actualité ont relayé ces enjeux, mais jusqu’à présent, ils n’étaient pas encore étayés par des travaux de réflexion qui permettraient de les expliquer avec savoir et méthode. C’est à ce travail fondateur de black studies à la française que Pap Ndiaye s’est consacré. Comment définir les Noirs de France ? L’auteur démontre brillamment que la « condition noire » désigne une situation sociale qui n’est celle ni d’une classe, d’une caste ou d’une communauté, mais d’une minorité, c’est-à-dire d’un groupe de personnes ayant en partage l’expérience sociale d’être généralement considérées comme noires. Cet essai dense et limpide décrit et analyse l’expérience de ces hommes et de ces femmes du xviiie siècle à nos jours ; le passé et le présent d’une minorité française. En préface, une nouvelle inédite de Marie NDiaye, Les Sœurs.

Slavery, Migrations, and Transformations: Connecting Old and New Diasporas to the Homeland - Student Edition by Falola, Toyin,Sanchez, Danielle Porter Summary

Note: this is an abridged version of the book with references removed. The complete edition is also available on this website. From the historical movements of enslaved Africans to the Americas to newer migrations of Africans to spaces like Belgium and France, experiences of blackness on a global stage reflect themes of negotiation, persecution, isolation, unification, remembrance, and much more. Yet, it is impossible to minimize the complex experiences that make up the African diaspora throughout the world, as diasporic communities face a range of struggles, specifically related to the politics of identity and connections to the continent of Africa itself. This book is thus a timely and much-needed exploration of the intricate nature of culture and life in the African diaspora. It examines identities, collectivities, and relationships with Africa and Africans. It helps fill a gap in the field by illuminating the complex experiences of blackness in a manner that motivates readers to grapple with the nuances diaspora studies and African issues on a global stage. This book balances conceptualizations of diaspora by engaging with scholars exploring old African diasporas, newer migrations, and even regional movement within the continent of Africa itself. More importantly, the chronological breadth of the volume allows readers to explore historical matters alongside comparable contemporary issues as a way of assessing continuities and the ways in which communities continue to grapple with institutional racism, political marginalization, and negotiations between tradition and modernity on a global stage. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary nature of the book offers diverse approaches for robust engagement with African diaspora studies.

The African Diaspora in India by Purnima Mehta Bhatt Summary

This book explores the understudied and often overlooked subject of African presence in India. It focuses on the so-called Sidis, Siddis or Habshis who occupy a unique place in Indian history. The Sidis comprise scattered communities of people of African descent who travelled and settled along the western coast of India, mainly in Gujarat, but also in Goa, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Sri Lanka and in Sindh (Pakistan) as a result of the Indian Ocean trade from the thirteenth to nineteenth centuries. The work draws from extant scholarly research and documentary sources to provide a comprehensive study of people of African descent in India and sheds new light on their experiences. By employing an interdisciplinary approach across fields of history, art, anthropology, religion, literature and oral history, it provides an analysis of their negotiations with cultural resistance, survivals and collective memory. The author examines how the Sidi communities strived to construct a distinct identity in a new homeland in a polyglot Indian society, their present status, as well as their future prospects. The book will interest those working in the fields of history, sociology and social anthropology, cultural studies, international relations, and migration and diaspora studies.

(Re)Thinking Violence in Health Care Settings by Trudy Rudge Summary

This comprehensive volume explores various forms of violence in health care settings. Using a broad range of critical approaches in the field of anthropology, cultural studies, gender studies, political philosophy and sociology, it examines violence following three definite yet interrelated streams: institutional and managerial violence against health care workers or patients; horizontal violence amongst health care providers and finally, patients' violence towards health care providers. Drawing together the latest research from Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US, (Re)Thinking Violence in Health Care Settings engages with the work of critical theorists such as Bourdieu, Butler, Foucault, Latour, and Zizek, amongst others, to address the issue of violence and theorise its workings in creative and controversial ways. As such, it will be of interest to sociologists and anthropologists with research expertise in health, medicine, violence and organisations, as well as to health care professionals.

Public Memory in the Context of Transnational Migration and Displacement by Sabine Marschall Summary

This book explores the border-transcending dimensions of public remembering by focussing on the triangular relationship between memory, monuments and migration. Framed by an introduction and conclusion, nine case studies located in diverse social and geo-political settings feature topical debates and contestation around monuments, statues and memorials erected by migrants or in memory of migrants, refugees and diasporas in host country societies. Written from different disciplinary perspectives including anthropology, art history, cultural studies and political science, the chapters consider displaced people as new, originally unintended audiences who bring transnational and transcultural perspectives to old monuments in host cities. In addition, migrants and diasporic communities are explored as ‘agents of memory’, who produce collective memory in tense environments of intra- and inter-group negotiation or outright hostility at the national and transnational level. The research is conceptually anchored in memory studies, notably transnational memory, multidirectional memory and other concepts emerging from memory studies’ recent ‘transcultural turn’.

The Sociocultural Turn in Psychology by Suzanne Kirschner,Jack Martin Summary

The sociocultural turn in psychology treats psychological subjects, such as the mind and the self, as processes that are constituted, or "made up," within specific social and cultural practices. In other words, though one's distinct psychology is anchored by an embodied, biological existence, sociocultural interactions are integral to the evolution of the person. Only in the past two decades has the sociocultural turn truly established itself within disciplinary and professional psychology. Providing advanced students and practitioners with a definitive understanding of these theories, Suzanne R. Kirschner and Jack Martin, former presidents of the American Psychological Association's Division of the Society for Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology, assemble a collection of essays that describes the discursive, hermeneutic, dialogical, and activity approaches of sociocultural psychology. Each contribution recognizes psychology as a human science and supports the individual's potential for agency and freedom. At the same time, they differ in their understanding of a person's psychological functioning and the best way to study it. Ultimately the sociocultural turn offers an alternative to overly biological or interiorized theories of the self, emphasizing instead the formation and transformation of our minds in relation to others and the world.

The Evolution of Black African Entrepreneurship in the UK by Ojo, Sanya Summary

Migrating to a different country can be difficult, especially when attempting to start a business. Africans who migrate to the UK manage to negotiate and forge relationships among themselves and with the members of their host society. In doing so, they not only demonstrate tactics to form self-employment relationships, but they also unveil socio-cultural patterns and identity formation. The Evolution of Black African Entrepreneurship in the UK explains why people leave Africa, what they encounter, their interactions with the host community, their strategies of inclusion, and perceived exclusions from the mainstream of British society. This publication also provides information on the social changes and policies that African countries are adopting to negotiate the immigration and emigration processes of the diaspora communities. Illustrating multiple aspects of Black African entrepreneurship that serve as a vehicle not only for self-employment relationships but also for the unveiling of socio-cultural patterns and identity formation, this publication covers gender biases, forced vs. voluntary migration, and diaspora entrepreneurship. It is designed for policymakers, managers, entrepreneurs, consultants, practitioners, professionals, scholars, students, and researchers.
