Geopolitics and Black Subjectivity Black British Travelogues with reference to Caryl Phillips and Gary Younge

Author Name: Alka Bhakar Jhajhria | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

The book, Geopolitics and Black Subjectivity, discusses the Black history and the impact of historical events on contemporary people of the African diaspora. Caryl Phillips and Gary Younge are contemporary Black British writers. They deal with the problematic issue of negotiating identity in the strange and hostile atmosphere around them. Home, belonging and identity are the key concepts in their texts. The book undertakes the study of travelogues of both the writers. Travel writing demonstrates the spatial differences, and geopolitics is also concerned with spatial differences; thereby both project the otherness of a foreign country. The travelogues discussed in the book reflect the Black subjectivity and geopolitical conditions in the present scenario. The term ‘geopolitics’ is discussed with reference to belongingness. Geopolitics raises the questions of race, identity and class, and it concerns itself with the marginalization of minorities. The dominance of the strong class over the weak ones and white hegemony are responsible for bringing the geopolitical crisis.
