African americans and others within the African diaspora have more and more “come domestic” to Africa to go to the websites at which their ancestors have been enslaved and shipped. during this nuanced research of homecoming, Katharina Schramm analyzes how a shared rhetoric of the (Pan-)African kin is produced between African hosts and Diasporan returnees and even as contested in perform. She examines the various interpretations and appropriations of important websites (e.g. the slave forts), occasions (e.g. Emancipation Day) and discourses (e.g. repatriation) in Ghana to focus on those dynamics. From this, she develops her notions of diaspora, domestic, homecoming, reminiscence and id that mirror the complexity and a number of reverberations of those cultural encounters past the sector of roots tourism.
