The post-colonial condition of African literature by African Literature Association( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ten articles on African literature in this collection were chosen from the 1995 conference of the African Literature Association held in Columbus, Ohio. The theme of that conference, "The Post-Colonial Condition of African Literature," has been broadly interpreted in both practical and theoretical ways by our writers. Most of them simply use the phrase "Post-Colonial" to refer to contemporary writings in Africa and the African diaspora." "Others examine the more theoretical aspects of post-colonial culture, especially as it illuminates the complex relationship between Africa and the West. Still other essays are concerned with feminist critiques of African literature."--Jacket
Children's literature & story-telling( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Africa's encounter with the West and its implications and consequences remain far-reaching and enduring in the craft and thrust of its creative writers. The contributors to ALT 33 analyse the connections between traditional stories and myths that have been told to children, as well as the work of contemporary creative writers who are writing for children in order that they understand this complex history. Some of these writers are developing traditional myths, folk tales, and legends and are writing them in new forms, while others focus on the encounter with the West that has dominated much modern African literature for adults. The previous neglect of the cultural significance, study, criticism and teaching of children's literature is addressed in this volume: How can the successes and/or failures of stories and story-telling for children in Africa be measured? Are there models to be followed and what makes them models? What is the relationship between the text and the illustration of children's books? What should guide the reader or critic of children's literature coming out of Africa - globalism, transculturality or internal regionalism? What problems confront teachers, students, publishers and promoters of children's books in Africa?

Diaspora & returns in fiction( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This special issue focuses on literary texts by African writers in which the protagonist returns to his/her "original" or ancestral "home" in Africa from other parts of the world. Ideas of return - intentional and actual - have been a consistent feature of the literature of Africa and the African diaspora: from Equiano's autobiography in 1789 to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's 2013 novel Americanah. African literature has represented returnees in a range of locations and dislocations including having a sense of belonging, being alienated in a country they can no longer recognize, or experiencing a multiple sense of place. Contributors, writing on literature from the 1970s to the present, examine the extent to which the original place can be reclaimed with or without renegotiations of "home" --

Writing Africa in the short story by Ernest Emenyo̲nu( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

African writers have, much more than the critics, recognized the beauty and potency of the short story. Always the least studied in African literature classrooms and the most critically overlooked genre in African literature today, the African short story is now given the attention it deserves. Contributors here take a close look at the African short story to re-define its own peculiar pedigree, chart its trajectory, critique its present state and examine its creative possibilities. They examine how the short story and the novel complement each other, or exist in contradistinction, within the context of culture and politics, history and public memory, legends, myths and folklore. Ernest Emenyonu is Professor of Africana Studies at the University of Michigan-Flint, USA; the editorial board is composed of scholars from US, UK and African universities. Nigeria: HEBN
