callaloo, caruru

 

        Em 1995, o volume 18, n.º 4 da revista Callaloo, Fall – Estados Unidos –, foi integralmente dedicado à literatura negra contemporânea produzida no Brasil. A partir de então – efetivando um compromisso assumido pelo seu editor, Charles H. Rowell –, a obra criativa dos escritores afro-brasileiros vem sendo estampada em suas páginas com acentuada regularidade. O volume 30 da revista dá prosseguimento a esse diálogo.

        Callaloo é uma revista devotada aos textos inventivos e aos estudos críticos dos escritores negros das Américas e África(s) publicação trimestral (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) editada por The Johns Hopkins University Press, com o patrocínio da University of Virginia. Callaloo foi fundada em 1976.

Callaloo and the Cultures and Letters of the Black Diaspora


To employ the term diaspora in black cultural studies now is equal parts imperative and elusive. In the wake of recent forceful critiques of nationalism, the diaspora has increasingly come to be understood as a concept—indeed, almost a discourse formation unto itself—that allows for, if not mandates, modes of analysis that are comparative, transnational, global in their perspective. And Callaloo, as a journal of African Diaspora arts and letters, might justly be understood to have a particular relationship to this mandate. For this special issue, we have tried to assemble pieces where the phrase diaspora can find little refuge as a self-reflexive term—a maneuver that seeks to destabilize the facile prefigurations of the word in our current critical vocabulary, where its invocation has too often become idiomatic. More critically, we selected essays that collectively examine the meanings of the Black Diaspora as forms of experiential subjectivity when they intersect with the registers of everyday life through their quotidian engagements with, for example, dance and music, sex and sexuality, and nostalgia and melancholia. With essays on Patricia Powell and Dionne Brand and poetry by Ronald Augusto and Edimilson de Almeida Pereira, this issue underscores the wide canvas of the Americas as a site of the Black Diaspora, taking us through the geographies of this panorama including Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica, and the Sea Islands off the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina. Taken as a whole, these pieces approach the phrase diaspora self-consciously, as a concept that insists on interrogating blackness as an intricate confluence of multiple histories and cultures.
