On the Mobility Turn in Zimbabwean literature : A review

Kizito Zhiradzago Muchemwa


Magdalena Pfalzgraf attends to the mobility turn in post-2000 Zimbabwean literature in the context of national and transnational spatial regimes. The Zimbabwean version of migration aesthetics is examined in the context of The Third Chimurenga, an ultranationalist and nativist state metanarrative that has greatly contributed to the heralding the age of the wandering Zimbabwean. The text choice, across racial and ethnic divides, successfully examines the forces that precipitate mobility.
