      1. An extremely influential analysis of literary works in the frame of a broad, transatlantic context. Gilroy argues for an understanding of a black Atlantic culture, which transcends ethnic or national borders and links issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality into a new approach to the black diaspora and the cultural production thereof.
