Abstract [en]

If Edem Awumey can be classified as a writer belonging to the ”migrant literature” in Canada, his work is overwhelmed with characters wandering without knowing where they go. It is the case in one of his novels  entitled Dirty Feet (Les Pieds Sales in French). According to Daniel Chartier, ”migrant writing” – unlike ethnic literature, immigration or immigrant literature – can be defined thematically by hybridity and by its frequent use of autobiography. The genre of migrant literature refers to literature from authors who are between two cultures and who focus on the journey, the odyssée. The story of the journey is the central part of this literary genre as it is a composition of cultural fragments. The aim of the presentation is to illustrate the characteristics of this genre through the novel of Edem Awumey, Les Pieds Sales. How are the characters and the locations presented in the novel? The analysis will be done with the help of Memory studies that primarily focus on the symbolic relevance of objects, characters and places.
