Toni Morrison’s articulations of race, slavery, gender and history have secured her place within the literary canon and garnered extensive comment in contemporary criticism. Less evident are examinations of Morrison’s fiction and essays that emanate from global, transnational and diasporic perspectives and allow for an understanding of her engagement with global movements of peoples, Black Atlantic cultures and emerging postcolonial interest in ecocriticism, universalism and cosmopolitanism. In this keynote address I suggest a theoretical framework for reading Morrison's work within global and transnational literary contexts.
