Liminal Citizens

Liminal Citizens

Drifting between Ginen and Guantánamo

(p.91) 3 Liminal Citizens
Duvalier's Ghosts

Jana Evans Braziel

University Press of Florida

This chapter suggests considering Ginen and Guantánamo to be two poles along a continuum essential for rethinking of black Atlantic. While doing so, the chapter also sheds light on liminal citizens, migrants who are trapped in no-man's land. The place no longer is in Ayiti, Haiti; and has not yet arrived in Etazini, the United States. As per the chapter, both Ginen and Guantánamo coexist in the black Atlantic and should effect our reconceptualization of the black Atlantic. The author brings into light aspects of both Gine and Guantánamo and how they are important elements of black Atlantic.

Keywords:   Ginen, Guantánamo, black Atlantic, liminal citizens, Ayiti, Etazini, Haiti, the United States
