Tentative Title- Rape and the Black Experience: A Literary Response

Concept Note

As per most of the definitions, rape is defined as non-consensual penetration of either the vagina or the anus. However, it is not merely physical, though it is rooted in biology, but its impacts are psychological in nature. Its consequences are experienced not only by the victim but by the victimizer as well. In almost all the cultures, rape is deployed as a weapon of domination by patriarchy. The penultimate threat for a woman, as it has been observed since centuries, is the fear of being raped. Through rape, patriarchy has often exercised absolute hegemony.

"African Perceptions of the Black Diaspora"

It is not surprising that the diaspora, in its representations of the origin seeks to establish and maintain the links with the dreamed motherland for everything leads to think that the place left, voluntarily or because of political, historical and even natural contingencies, do not leave the diasporic subject. Confronted with an in-between situation, his creative work articulates different identities, opposing cultures and a vague memory of the origin. But how does this origin think and represent its diaspora? This is the central question of this anthology, essentially dedicated to Africa.
