ABSTRACT
African authors’ writing can be justified, at least in pioneering works, by the worry to restore a historical truth. Despite the fact this task has contributed to the acknowledgment of classical writers and works, the evolution of African societies towards modernity gives rise to relevant questions about stakes of postmodern and postcolonial African literary discourse. From now on, the latters follow two trends namely the work produced by local writers and those done by foreign ones among which migrants such as Miriam Kwalanda and Fatou Diome who are part of second category of writers. They lay emphasis in their novel, on the question of immigrants found in self-representation situation. The main focus in this article is to question the work of our novelists from the “postcolonial critic” and the “scenography”. Through the categories of settings and characters, we will read the intercultural contact between Africa and Europe in the novel of Miriam Kwalanda and Fatou Diome as a discourse aimed at destroying identities conceptions.
