Traveling Texts and the paintings of Afro-Japanese Cultural Production analyzes the advanced conversations occurring in texts of all types touring among Africans, African Diasporas, and eastern throughout disciplinary, geographic, racial, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural borders. Be it curious about the makeup of the blackface ganguro or the haiku of Richard Wright, Rastafari groups in Japan or the black enka singer Jero, the amount turns its recognition clear of questions of illustration to ones in regards to the generative elements of transcultural construction. The individuals have an interest essentially in texts in motion—the contradictory movement inside of texts, the touring of texts, and the motion that such kinetic strength evokes in readers, audience, listeners, and tourists. As our texts commute and travail, the originary nodal issues that anchor them to set significations loosen and are reworked; the essays hint how, within the technique of touring, the our bodies and subjectivities of these operating to reimagine the text(s) in new websites average, accommodate, and transfigure either the texts and themselves.
