n French Studies in Southern Africa - L'identité diasporique dans d'Amin Maalouf

Volume 2009, Issue 39
  • ISSN : 0259-0247



Amin Maalouf's novel demonstrates the diasporic identity in its relation with geographical space, its temporal deployment, and its relation with the Other, thus stimulating a perpetual repositioning of the modern subject. In this sense we should conceive identity as a "production" which is never complete, always in process. This essay provides an outline for a certain reflection on diasporic identity that could help to understand more profoundly our diasporic era, especially the "transnational moment" that we all experience.
