«En descendant de l'avion à Lagos, j'ai eu l'impression d'avoir cessé d'être noire.» Ifemelu quitte le Nigeria pour aller faire ses études à Philadelphie. Jeune et inexpérimentée, elle laisse derrière elle son grand amour, Obinze, éternel admirateur de l'Amérique qui compte bien la rejoindre. Mais comment rester soi lorsqu'on change de continent, lorsque soudainement la couleur de votre peau prend un sens et une importance que vous ne lui aviez jamais donnés, quand tout à coup le fait d'être noir est censé dicter vos réactions et vos pensées ? Obinze partira finalement en Angleterre et, pendant quinze ans aux Etats-Unis, Ifemelu tentera de trouver sa place au sein d'un pays profondément marqué par le racisme et la discrimination. De défaites en réussites, elle trace son chemin, pour finir par revenir sur ses pas, jusque chez elle, au Nigeria. A la fois drôle et grave, doux mélange de lumière et d'ombre, Americanah est une magnifique histoire d'amour, de soi d'abord mais également des autres, ou d'un autre. De son ton irrévérencieux, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie fait valser le politiquement correct et les clichés sur la race ou le statut d'immigrant, et parcourt trois continents d'un pas vif et puissant.

From the award-winning, bestselling author of We Should All Be Feminists and Half of a Yellow Sun—the story of two Nigerians making their way in the U.S. and the UK, raising universal questions of race, belonging, the overseas experience for the African diaspora, and the search for identity and a home. Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, University of Constance (FB Literatur, Kunst- und Medienwissenschaften), course: Writing Africa, language: English, abstract: The present research paper aims to prove in a first step that the American Dream acts as a leitmotif throughout the entire novel, thus showing that it is ideally suited as an object of investigation, in order to explore and discuss in a further step whether Ifemelu's American Dream can ultimately be regarded as fulfilled or disappointed, including the emphasis on important literary topoi such as race, the question of women's rights and social matters. Due to the paper's given length and the particular subject chosen, the following analysis will mainly focus on Ifemelu and her experiences, as she actually leaves Nigeria for the U.S. and then comes back to her home country, thus representing the perfect research subject under the thesis of the American Dream, it's reliving and consequences through her personae. As for Obinze, who experiences similar difficulties in the U.K., a comparison does present itself, but can only be the subject of another research paper.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2018 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 8,5, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, course: Ethnic Studies, language: English, abstract: In the present paper I embed Ifemelu’s migration to America in the broader diaspora of Africans to the United States which is undertaken in search of more favourable education and career prospects. I suggest that diasporans could potentially comprise the par excellence hybrid identity that Homi Bhabha has championed in the development of his postcolonial theory of identity formation. I argue that Americanah poses a substantial challenge to hybridity and mimicry-based cultural identities by accentuating the very limitations of these models; namely, that they seriously overlook the psychic trauma caused by the loss of cultural authenticity due to the disconnection from the motherland and by the identity reinvention undertaken in the host country. My thesis posits that Ifemelu is affected by diasporic melancholia. Adapting Sigmund Freud’s concept of melancholia in the context of diaspora theory I seek to demonstrate that the inarticulate loss of the motherland and the position inbetween cultures disorients and traumatises the subject. I argue that the feelings of ceaseless restlessness and vague yet constant dissatisfaction that the subject experiences point

The idea of “diaspora” is an everyday concept for many people around the world who have left their homeland voluntarily or by force with the hope of making a new home in another place. In recent years, academics have used this term to reference conflating categories such as immigrants, ethnic and racial minorities, and refugees. This book examines the concepts of diaspora in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah (2013). Americanah tells the story of a smart young girl named Ifemelu who leaves Nigeria for America in search of higher education. In America, she faces several problems before graduating from college. This book investigates Americanah through diasporic concepts such as self and Otherness, acculturation, cultural diversity, hybridity, ambivalence and mimicry, unbelonging and return.

Una original historia sobre la inmigraci�n en Estados Unidos desde el punto de vista de una estudiante de literatura nigeriana. Lagos, mediados de los noventa. En el marco de una dictadura militar y en una Nigeria que ofrece poco o ning�n futuro, Ifemelu y Obinze, dos adolescentes at�picos, se enamoran apasionadamente. Como gran parte de su generaci�n, saben que antes o despu�s tendr�n que dejar el pa�s. Obinze siempre ha so�ado con vivir en Estados Unidos, pero es Ifemelu quien consigue el visado para vivir con su t�a en Brooklyn y estudiar en la universidad. Mientras Obinze lucha contra la burocracia para reunirse con Ifemelu, ella se encuentra en una Am�rica donde nada es como se imaginaba, comenzando por la importancia del color de su piel. Todas sus experiencias, desgracias y aventuras conducen a una �nica pregunta: �acabar� convirti�ndose en una �americanah�? Americanah, que recoge el t�rmino burl�n con que los nigerianos se refieren a los que vuelven de Estados Unidos d�ndose aires, es una historia de amor a lo largo de tres d�cadas y tres continentes, la historia de c�mo se crea una identidad al margen de los dictados de la sociedad y sus prejuicios.
