Carter Publishes Book About African Diaspora

Associate Professor of Africana Studies Donald Martin Carter has published a book titled Navigating the African Diaspora: The Anthropology of Invisibility.

The book, published by the University of Minnesota Press, examines “how the fraught political economy of migration impacts people around the world.” Carter developed the notion of “the anthropology of invisibility” and examines various forms of invisibility including social rejection, residential segregation and “the inability of some groups to represent themselves through popular culture, scholarship, or art.” Global in span, Carter’s analysis includes “contemporary and historical constellations of displacement, from Darfurian refugees to French West African colonial soldiers.”
