Archives of the Black Atlantic: Reading Between Literature and History (2013)


Wendy W. Walters

Through literary engagement with the archives of the slave trader, colonizer, and courtroom, this book analyzes how black historical literature presents new methodologies for studying both the archive and literature itself. This book engages in transnational and interdisciplinary readings that expose the instability of the archive’s truth claims and highlight the rebellious possibility always present in documents of the past.
