Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

The purpose of this thesis is to explore women of African ancestry's contributions to scholarship by analyzing three novels written by black women: Breath, Eyes, Memory (1994) by Edwidge Danticat, Nervous Conditions (1988) by Tsitsi Dangarebga and In Another Place, Not Here (1994) by Dionne Brand. Using an anti-colonial black feminist framework, this thesis examines how issues facing black women throughout the African diaspora can be articulated through fictional narratives. It is argued that black women's histories and experiences can be heard through these novels. Issues discussed include the multiplicity of oppressions, violence, spirit injury, eating disorders, and methods of resistance.
