Reflection and Analysis of Stuart Hall's “Cultural Identity and Diaspora”
He had interest in Caribbean history and literature as a student, which might have also influenced his career.
In outlining and defining a new Caribbean re-diasporization whose amorphous geographical boundaries locate its subjects in an explicitly transnational and transformative space of change and renewal, Hall draws on Caribbean communities both at home and abroad to rewrite the boundaries of diaspora as a concept.
Cultural identities are never static; rather, they constantly change, without the limitations of special boundaries.
