Street Fiction: Identity, Representation, and Black Femininity

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The present paper explores how street fiction novels, which are marked by their use of hip hop cultural aesthetics, might shape the lives of the females who read them, and what they mean for both readers and street fiction authors. The central argument of the present paper is that street fiction novels provide a space in which authors and readers navigate and negotiate black female identities. I argue that street fiction is not simply a body of fictional narratives, but a space wherein Black women resist and complicate white hegemonic representations of their histories and Black femininity.
