Review of Exile Cultures, Misplaced Identities, by Paul Allatson and Jo Mc Cormack (Eds.) 2008. Critical Studies Vol. 30. Amsterdam and New York: Rodopi.
This review has been published in Journal of Iberian and Latin American Research, 17:1, 121-127.
Exile Cultures, Misplaced Identities questions Edward Said's idea that exile always engenders sadness and estrangement, and asks if there are other ways of experiencing and imagining exile. Its thirteen case studies present a broad array of exile experiences, questioning how we can possibly define exile if it comes in so many different forms.
