Abstract:This special issue examines traces of religious themes in the work of authors of minority literature. Following an introductory chapter by David Chidester, Brenda Cooper and Annedith Schneider examine the work of the Nigerian author Biyi Bandele and the Algerian author Assia Djebar, respectively. The next three articles (by Riva Rubin, Veronica Belling and Nancy Rozenchan) engage the Jewish diaspora in Brazil, South Africa and Israel. Chris N. van der Merwe focuses on Ingrid Winterbach's Afrikaans novel, 'Niggie' (2002). Erhard Reckwitz examines aspects of white writing in postapartheid South Africa. The final two articles explore the creative space of marginality. Hannelore van Ryneveld focuses on the Spanish-Andalusian poet José F.A. Oliver, who writes in German, and Azila Talit Reisenberger explores the in-between space of intercultural contacts, relations, and exchanges as a zone of creativity. [ASC Leiden abstract]
