Liminal Spaces: Art and Migration Narratives of Women of the Guyanese Diaspora
WHENMonday, March 22, 2021 6:30-8pmWHERE
WHONYU Abu Dhabi InstituteOpen to the Public
Grace Aneiza Ali’s recently-published Liminal Spaces: Migration and Women of the Guyanese Diaspora (OpenBook Publishers) is an intimate exploration into the art and migration narratives of 15 women of Guyanese heritage. In this talk, Ali expands on the book’s four-part journey tracing the migration path of Guyanese women from their moment of departure, to their arrival on diasporic soils, to their reunion with Guyana. One of the only studies published on the Guyanese diaspora, this is an important contribution to the scholarly field of international migration, transnationalism, and diaspora, both in its creative methodological approach and in its subject area.
