Abstract:Most of the original versions of these papers were presented at a Britain Zimbabwe Society (BZS) research day, 'Displacement and Survival: Zimbabwe's New Diaspora'. The Introduction, stating the central theme, is by JoAnn McGregor. Part 1 is about Zimbabwean diasporic communities in South Africa and the topics addressed are rising xenophobia (J. Muzondidya); farmworkers in Limpopo province (B. Rutherford); and the politics of legal status for Zimbabweans in South Africa (N. Kriger). Part 2, about the cultural politics of survival in Britain, investigates: transnational diaspora politics in Britain (D. Pasura); the problem of loss of status and civic exclusion (J. McGregor); death in the diaspora and Harare (B. Mbiba); and the ways HIV-positive Zimbabwean women have renegotiated their health and family relationships after migrating to Britain (M. Chinouya). Part 3 is about diasporic identities and transnational media and delves into the meaning of 'Zimbabweanness' (W. Mano, W. Willems); the revival of the Rhodesian discourse (R. Primorac); the Ndebele and mixed-race online diaspora 'homes' (C. Peel); and the present-day Zimbabwean literary canon in English and its predication on displacement (B. Chikwava, introduced by R. Primorac). [ASC Leiden abstract]
