Creolizing Europe

H. Adlai Murdoch

Liverpool University Press

H. Adlai Murdoch traces colonial poetics within contemporary Europe by examining the ways in which migrant Caribbean diasporas inscribe critical paradoxes of migrancy and citizenship within France, concentrating on displaced inhabitants of French Caribbean overseas departments who were made citizens of France in 1946. The resulting diasporic intersections give rise to critical transformations of Frenchness and Caribbeanness engendered in the metropole. This French Caribbean-derived metropolitan community has become virtually 1% of the French hexagonal population and their cultural and identitarian hybridities increasingly destabilize our current notions of nationality and belonging.
