April Shemak – ‘Asylum Speakers’

Another extremely interesting book, connecting the actual debate on hospitality, cosmopolitanism, migration politics, citizenship and testimony with the condition of the refugees and asylum seekers in the Caribbean, Central America and USA. Reviewed by Donette A. Francis (University of Miami) on the academic journal ‘Anthurium. A Caribbean Studies Journal‘ (9.1, 2012):

April Shemak, Asylum Speakers: Caribbean Refugees and Testimonial Discourse (New York: Fordham University Press, 2011).
