A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. While Richard Wright s account of the 1955 Bandung Conference has been key to shaping Afro-Asian historical narratives, Indonesian accounts of Wright and his conference attendance have been largely overlooked. Indonesian Notebook contains myriad documents by Indonesian writers, intellectuals, and reporters, as well as a newly recovered lecture by Wright, previously published only in Indonesian. Brian Russell Roberts and Keith Foulcher introduce and contextualize these documents with extensive background information and analysis, showcasing the heterogeneity of postcolonial modernity and underscoring the need to consider non-English language perspectives in transnational cultural exchanges. This collection of primary sources and scholarly histories is a crucial companion volume to Wright sThe Color Curtain. N° de réf. du libraire AAJ9780822360513

While Richard Wright's account of the 1955 Bandung Conference has been key to shaping Afro-Asian historical narratives, Indonesian accounts of Wright and his conference attendance have been largely overlooked. Indonesian Notebook contains myriad documents by Indonesian writers, intellectuals, and reporters, as well as a newly recovered lecture by Wright, previously published only in Indonesian. Brian Russell Roberts and Keith Foulcher introduce and contextualize these documents with extensive background information and analysis, showcasing the heterogeneity of postcolonial modernity and underscoring the need to consider non-English language perspectives in transnational cultural exchanges. This collection of primary sources and scholarly histories is a crucial companion volume to Wright'sThe Color Curtain.

Critique:

"An invaluable guide to Richard Wright, and to a transnational American Studies with new geographical coordinates. Gathering together the documents Indonesian and Dutch as well as English written before, during, and after Wright's participation in the 1955 Bandung Conference, Brian Russell Roberts and Keith Foulcher go behind and beyond "The Color Curtain," giving us a fresh window on a key historical moment."--Wai Chee Dimock, Yale University"

"In this ground-breaking account of Richard Wright and Bandung, Brian Russell Roberts and Keith Foulcher advance in fresh and unexpected ways our conversations on the postcoloniality of black histories in the West and the tangled legacies of white supremacy in Asian and African colonialism. "Indonesian Notebook"'s rich layering of Indonesian sources makes this book an indispensable addition to Wright scholarship and reminds us that the quest for equality must confront the stubborn local socio-economic realities throughout the globe."--Amritjit Singh, Langston Hughes Professor of English, Ohio University

"This notebook is a tour de force of comparative literary and cross-cultural historical interpretation. Through meticulous scholarship and lucid commentaries Brian Russell Roberts and Keith Foulcher pioneer an innovative approach to Indonesian and African American literatures without reference to cores, peripheries, canons, or English as anything other than a useful lingua franca. This brilliant book demonstrates why scholarly collaboration does the best job of excavating lost interactions between people, cultures, and languages during the big events of planetary history."--Tony Day, Associate Senior Fellow, ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute, Singapore"
