New publication – Senegal Abroad: Linguistic Borders, Racial Formations, and Diasporic Imaginaries

January 23, 2019

New publication by African Studies affiliate faculty Maya Smith Senegal Abroad: Linguistic Borders, Racial Formations, and Diasporic Imaginaries by University of Wisconsin Press.
The study explores the fascinating role of language in national, transnational, postcolonial, racial, and migrant identities. Capturing the experiences of first and second-generation Senegalese in Paris, Rome, and New York, it depicts how they make sense of who they are—and how they fit into their communities, countries, and the larger global Senegalese diaspora.
