Abstract
I argue for a reconceptualization of undocumentedness, the experience of being undocumented, from an experience that is simply a result of the modern immigration regime to an experience that is a result of interlocking systems of oppression and resistance to them that has shaped Blackness and the vision for black liberation. I make this argument by defining and tracing the trope of the papers—the use of legal and extralegal documents to examine and document African Americans’ and other people of African descent’s relationship to the nation-state—in the slave narrative and the neo-slave narrative. I offer a close readings of slave narratives, including Sojourner Truth’s The Narrative of Sojourner Truth (1850) and Harriet Jacobs’ Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Written by Herself, and neo-slave narratives, including Toni Morrison’s A Mercy (2008) and Gayl Jones’s Mosquito (1999), to illustrate the significance of the undocumented immigrant in African American literature and demonstrate that writers of African American literature have been thinking intensely about undocumentedness, although not in the way undocumentedness is typically understood.

论文的秘密:对非裔美国人文学中记载的(联合国)的反思

摘要
我主张对无证件的概念进行重新概念化,即无证件的经历,从仅仅是现代移民制度的结果到是由压迫和抵制相互联系的结果所形成的经历,这些经历塑造了黑度和异象。为黑人解放。我通过在奴隶叙事和新奴隶叙事中定义和追溯文件的形式(使用法律和法外文件来检查和记录非裔美国人和其他非洲人后裔与民族国家的关系)来论证这一论点。叙述。我仔细阅读了奴隶的叙述,包括《寄居者真相》(The Sojourner Truth)(1850年)和哈丽雅特·雅各布斯(Harriet Jacobs)的《自己写的一个奴隶女孩事件》。以及新奴隶的叙述,包括托尼·莫里森(Toni Morrison)的《怜悯》A Mercy)(2008)和盖尔·琼斯(Gayl Jones)的《蚊子》Mosquito(1999)),以说明无证件移民在非裔美国人文学中的重要性,并表明非裔美国人文学作家一直在认真思考无证件,尽管不是以通常的方式了解无证件的方式。
