    Abstract: In 'Autochthonomies', Myriam J.A. Chancy engages readers in an interpretive journey. She lays out a radical new process that invites readers to see creations by artists of African descent as legible within the context of African diasporic historical and cultural debates. By invoking a transnational African/diasporic lens and negotiating it through a lakou or 'yard space,' we can see such identities transfigured, recognized, and exchanged. Chancy demonstrates how the process can examine the salient features of texts and art that underscore African/diasporic sensibilities and render them legible. What emerges is a potential for richer readings of African diasporic works that also ruptures the Manichean binary dynamics that have dominated previous interpretations of the material.

    Abstract: "In this book of textual and cultural studies, Myriam J. A. Chancy focuses on the tropes of transnationalism, testimony and transmission within African diasporic texts. Not a work simply concerned with "racial rehabilitation" or "inclusion" within the dominant discourses of North America and Western Europe, it intends to serve as an intervention in race, Caribbean, African diasporic, and cultural studies by providing a radically new model for a culturally imbedded reading practice of contemporary works by African and African diasporic artists. Its purpose is to reveal the contributions to ontology that such artists deploy. In developing this approach, Chancy revisits the concept of "interpretive communities" from a distinctively African diasporic point of view. She uses concepts derived from contemporary philosophical approaches to subjectivity that revise-and mostly discard-Hegelian principles in order to assert less Eurocentric approaches. Building from these, she develops her neologism autochthonomy (aw-tok-ton-nuh-mee), which describes a practice of subjectivity and agency employed by African diasporic artists. Those artists chosen for this study bring together the experiences, movements, and knowledge of populations of African descent both on the continent and dispersed throughout Europe and the Americans in order to emphasize transnational interactions between African cultural producers and sites."--

    Abstract: In this essay I show that texts by early Caribbean women writers, such as the Wonderful Adventures of Mrs. Seacole in Many Lands , reveal and resist the effects of colonial paradigms by leaving textual traces of how such paradigms can effectively be countered and overturned. I arrive at such a reading of Seacole via an analysis of Frantz Fanon's (mis)reading of Mayotte Capécia's turn‐of‐the‐century novel, Je suis martiniquaise , in light of advances in postcolonial and feminist theory. I argue that doing so can bring us to recognize the contributions that early writings by Caribbean women have made to a broader understanding of the nature of being, across differences of “race,” class, and geography. I consider how we might recover in Capécia important models that Fanon himself replicates, yet dismisses, that predate Capécia's own text and that can be located in a text like Seacole's. In the end, I come to contend that Mary Seacole's text is more than a mere record of a “free colored” woman's life in the second half of the nineteenth century. It is, to use today's postcolonial parlance, an interventionist, hybrid text that attempts to subvert dominant discourse while participating in its circuits.
