About this book

Contemporary Asylum Narratives marks a transition from traditional modes of diasporic belonging to the need for identifications that encompass the statelessness of refugees and asylum seekers. This book explores representations of asylum seekers and refugees in twenty-first century literature, film and theatre.

Reviews

"Contemporary Asylum Narratives is a fluent, insightful, and theoretically astute work with much to say about the politics of representing refugee experience. Agnes Woolley has made a timely addition to debates around the place of asylum in postcolonial studies." - David Farrier, University of Edinburgh, UK
