Creolizing Europe

Alpesh Kantilal Patel

Liverpool University Press

Alpesh Patel seeks to re-invoke and re-work the term ‘Black Atlantic’ by suggesting the ‘Brown Atlantic’ as an actual and imaginary space that recognizes the specific colonial and postcolonial legacies that the United Kingdom and North America share. Interrogating the heteronormative and sexist logic of the ‘Black Atlantic’ and the intra-/inter-racial connections of the ‘Black/Brown Altantic’, Patel uses this methodological framework to look at queer South Asian diasporic subjectivities. The methodology demands that sexuality, ‘race’, notions of ‘diaspora’/home, gender, and class be considered together, which serves to denaturalize or expose power structures by making them visible, and allowing them to be seen in relation to each other more easily.

Keywords:   ‘Brown Atlantic’, Queer, South Asian, Diaspora, power
