My research looks directly at the productions of difference in the literatures of the African diaspora to devise new frameworks of analysis for liminality within the experiences of travel, displacement, and exile. I focus my research along several threads: resistance strategies marginalized groups deploy to counter heterosexist, masculinist, and racist hegemonic discourses, and the ways in which race, class, gender, and sex are used to control the subjectivity and agency of "the Other" and to delineate those bodies as transgressive.
