Cosmopolitanism and diaspora

Jairus Omuteche, whose PhD research on representations of home in the work of Ngugi wa Thiong'o and Toni Morrison is supervised by Drs Kath Kerr-Koch and Geoff Nash (English), has published a comparative analysis of representations of the experience of diasporic home, identity and belonging in the novels of Edwidge Danticat, Dionne Brand, and Chika Unigwe. The chapter, entitled 'Global Cosmopolitanism and Diasporic Singularities' appears in Diasporic Choices (Inter-Disciplinary Press, 2013), a volume developed from a conference held at Mansfield College Oxford in 2012.
