An article by Professor of English Rosemary Haskell recently appeared in The Minnesota Review: A Journal of Creative and Critical Writing.

Haskell’s article, “Migritude’s Progress: Fatou Diome’s Twenty-Five Years in Afrique(s)-sur-Rhine,” analyzes francophone Senegalese novelist Fatou Diome’s explorations in novels and in nonfiction of “migritude,” the rich conceptualization of the complexities of Black African identity in the context of the exciting and perilous migrant’s condition.

Fatou Diome, born in Senegal in 1968, now lives in France. She has published several novels, including the best-selling “Le ventre de l’Atlantique” (translated into English as “The Belly of the Atlantic”), about boys and young men risking their lives by migrating to Europe from Senegal in the hope of playing soccer in the “big leagues.”
