Postcolonial women writers in a transnational frame

addressing the historical movements of people, are founded upon a critique of fixed origins and ethnic absolutes: in Avtar Brah’s words, diaspora ‘takes account of a homing desire, as distinct from a desire for a “homeland”’.8 As Paul Gilroy influentially argues in The Black Atlantic, cunningly shifting postcolonial and cultural studies preoccupations from ‘roots’ to ‘routes’, modern black identities were developed in motion, through the transmission of peoples and cultural influences, through encounter and dialogue, rather than by way of a competition between static entities

’ in literary and cultural studies, as well as in social sciences, from which the distinction between space and place described here has been drawn, has flourished in recent decades. Some of the major theorists and critics contributing to how we understand space and place include Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau, Judith Butler, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, and others.
