Children's literature & story-telling( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 107 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?
Negritude : legacy and present relevance by Isabelle Constant( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Should Negritude be seen as a movement that originated at the end of the colonial era and merits no further study in this contemporary world? This is one of the questions explored in the Colloquium held at the University of the West Indes, Barbados, to mark the centenary of the birth of Léopold Sedar Senghor. In a recent study, Césaire et Senghor: Un pont sur l'Atlantique, Lylian Kesteloot reminds her readers of the importance of Negritude which contributed to the emergence of African literature between 1930 and 1960. The idea of essentialism which the word Negritude implies, as well as the opposite idea of universalism, will be widely discussed in the pages of this work. This collection of essays acknowledges the essential shortcomings of Senghor's Negritude, but, at the same time, underlies the fact that in Senghor's words, "Negritude is a myth" and therefore has to do with the construction of (an) identity and Senghor's words, "Negritude is a myth" and therefore has to do with the construction of (an) identity and is the expression of an imaginary creation. It envisaged, for example, the creation of an African form of socialism within a unique interpretation of Marxism. In this volume, African and Caribbean writers who are concerned with contemporary issues, demonstrate the vitality of Negritude as a poetic, philosophical and literary movement and as an ideological response to oppression that is still relevant in its presentation of cultures. Clearly , it is necessary to go beyond the notion of race implied in the term and to focus on the cultural, philosophical and aesthetic elements in order to appreciate the relevance of Negritude today. Most notably in the Caribbean or Brazil, Negritude has been transformed into original ideological and aesthetic projects. -- from back cover
Diaspora & returns in fiction by Ernest Emenyo̲nu( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 80 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"--

Lifelong learning, participation and equity by Judith D Chapman( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major problem in many countries is that schools, universities and other traditional learning institutions are not providing for the educational needs of all members of the community. In many communities, particularly in regional, rural and disadvantaged areas, there are only limited options for people to undertake learning. Limited participation in learning has the danger of reinforcing peopleâs alienation from mainstream education and from participation and inclusion in social institutions and economic and community life more generally. This book addresses the challenge of identifying effective ways of accommodating the learning needs of all people and in so doing achieving the goals of lifelong learning for all. The aims of the book are: to provide the reader with a range of conceptual, analytical and empirical studies of lifelong learning; to clarify conceptual, policy and practical issues relevant to the relationship between lifelong learning, participation and equity; to examine the role of government and other agencies in the community in enhancing the provision of learning and in fostering participation and equity; to examine the most effective ways in which learning opportunities can be provided for all people, particularly for those people in regional, rural or disadvantaged communities who have not experienced success in mainstream education; and to identify implications of recent conceptual, analytic and empirical work for public policy, particularly in regard to the provision of education, participation in learning, community building, social inclusion and equity.
