Abstract : This book examines how the notion of "place" is reconstructed by memory (be it individual or collective), imagination, fantasy, desire, language, myth in a colonial or post-colonial context of displacement, migration, or exile, in the English-speaking world; how memory and personal testimonies serve to fill in the blanks of historical discourse, give voice to a forgotten community, and question grand narratives which tend to exclude the (hi)stories of others, thus opposing centralizing monological discourses to the decentralizing polyphony of the postcolonial world.
