Abstract

ABSTRACT:

This article discusses the debates surrounding Afropolitanism and how Afropolitanism can be mobilized as a hermeneutic to engage African migration novels along the thematic lines of language, race, and cultural hybridity. I develop a hermeneutical Afropolitanism to analyze the thematic concerns taken up in Americanah and We Need New Names. Doing so discloses how these two migration novels dramatize and extend fundamental aspects of black diaspora theory developed by Stuart Hall and others.
