Resumo

This essay aims at delineating a panoramic analysis of contemporary black women’s writings in the U.S. and Brazil in order to examine how these writings establish a dialogic relationship with each other across the diasporic space in the Americas. Taking on Brent Edwards conceptualizations of diaspora (2003), I will argue that contemporary Afro-Brazilian and U.S. Afro-American women writers re-write the black female body into literary representations of multi-layered racial, gender and sexual discourses. Read against and with each other, their writings contribute to re-elaborate universalizing notions of selfhood and the complexities of subjectivity, while retaining a sense of cultural and historical specifi city. Within a comparative and transnational approach, this essay will discuss some of the writings by Conceição Evaristo, Miriam Alves, Esmeralda Ribeiro, Cristiane Sobral, and Elisa Lucinda (Brazil); as well as some of the works by Audre Lorde, June Jordan, Toni Morrison, Gayl Jones, and Danzy Senna (U.S.), among others.
