Chinua Achebe's legacy : illuminations from Africa by James Ogude( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chinua Achebe's novels and essays have always drawn our attention to issues of memory, the story, history and our own obligation to history as Africans. Achebe constantly goes back to the authority of narrative, the story; and as the subsequent generations of African writers like Chimamanda Adichie keep returning to, to celebrate Africa's many stories, its moments of failure and triumph. Achebe, more than any other writer on this continent, has inspired many, and hopefully the African story tellers of the coming centuries, irrespective of their location will continue to be inspired by him. This collection of essays is an enduring tribute to this rich legacy of Achebe
Rethinking eastern African literary and intellectual landscapes( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together diverse voices, genres and intellectual trajectories in an attempt to reflect on the state of production of, and engagement with, Eastern African literary cultures. The book re-visits established intellectual debates and canonical texts, while simultaneously offering a forceful engagement with popular arts and performance; particularly the manner in which genres such as drama, music and new media offer important insights into everyday life in the region. At the core of these essays is Eastern Africa s engagement with the legacy of colonial modernity, which remains a major influence on the region s artists. The book also speaks to rich and complex sources of Eastern African cultures and how these continue to be negotiated through multiple currents, both local and transnational. The essays traverse layered cultural landscapes and intellectual traditions pointing to how discourses rooted in past traditions and born out of Eastern Africa s search for aesthetic affirmation of the self, continue to be entangled with its contemporary poetics, albeit in new ways. Ultimately, this collection of essays points to how Eastern African cultural productions could offer a useful template for crystallizing the region s elusive uniqueness, while acknowledging the heterogeneity and tensions that undermine any attempts to fix it as a stable cultural landscape

Ubuntu and personhood( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the relationship between Ubuntu and the idea of personhood. Ubuntu in its broadest sense is rooted in the belief that the full development of personhood comes with shared identity and the idea that an individual's humanity is fostered in a network of relationships: I am because you are; we are because you are. The chapters in this book seek to interrogate this relational quality of personhood embodied in Ubuntu. The book further seeks to examine whether we can talk about relational personhood without running the risk of essentialism. It argues that no human society is possible without a network of relations, which involves, among other elements, communication and interaction between individuals. It is a critical engagement with how Ubuntu shapes those ethical values of connectedness and interdependence within society. The book also asks whether we can find relevance in Ubuntu as an ethical value system, which is likely to mediate our daily activities and the social institutions, which serve communities in post-colonial societies"--
