Introduction: Carnival in the Creole City: Place, Race and Identity in the Age of Globalization
Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly
This cluster of "Life Stories from the Creole City" brings together essays that focus on figures negotiating subjectivity within different "creole cities" at specific historical junctures, as these urban spaces become compelling sites for narrating subjectivity in negotiation with forces of globalization, diaspora, and cosmopolitanism. The essays variously illuminate the difficulties and payoffs associated with narrating lives in—and of—porous urban space.
