    Description"Race and Displacement" captures a timely set of discussions about the roles of race in displacement, forced migrations, nation and nationhood, and the way continuous movements of people challenge fixed racial definitions. The multifaceted approach of the essays in "Race and Displacement" allows for nuanced discussions of race and displacement in expansive ways, exploring those issues in transnational and global terms. The contributors not only raise questions about race and displacement as signifying tropes and lived experiences; they also offer compelling approaches to conversations about race, displacement, and migration both inside and outside the academy. Taken together, these essays become a case study in dialogues across disciplines, providing insight from scholars in diaspora studies, postcolonial studies, literary theory, race theory, gender studies, and migration studies. The contributors to this volume use a variety of analytical and disciplinary methodologies to track multiple articulations of how race is encountered and defined. The book is divided by editors Maha Marouan and Merinda Simmons into four sections: "Race and Nation" considers the relationships between race and corporality in transnational histories of migration using literary and oral narratives. Essays in "Race and Place" explore the ways spatial mobility in the twentieth century influences and transforms notions of racial and cultural identity. Essays in "Race and Nationality" address race and its configuration in national policy, such as racial labeling, federal regulations, and immigration law. In the last section, "Race and the Imagination" contributors explore the role imaginative projections play in shaping understandings of race. Together, these essays tackle the question of how we might productively engage race and place in new sociopolitical contexts. Tracing the roles of "race" from the corporeal and material to the imaginative, the essays chart new ways that concepts of origin, region, migration, displacement, and diasporic memory create understandings of race in literature, social performance, and national policy.

    Review quote
    "The editors have collected essays that allow for a highly nuanced exploration of race in a way that has not been seen or explored previously. This is well researched and elegantly presented."-- Lovalerie King, author of "Race, Theft, and Ethics: Property Matters in African American Literature"
