Dance circles : movement, morality and self-fashioning in urban Senegal by Hélène Neveu Kringelbach( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 1,481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Senegal has played a central role in contemporary dance due to its rich performing traditions, as well as strong state patronage of the arts, first under French colonialism and later in the postcolonial era. In the 1980s, when the Senegalese economy was in decline and state fundingwithdrawn, European agencies used the performing arts as a tool in diplomacy. This had a profound impact on choreographic production and arts markets throughout Africa. In Senegal, choreographic performers have taken to contemporary dance, while continuing to engage with neo-traditional performance, regional genres
Dancing cultures : globalization, tourism and identity in the anthropology of dance by Hélène Neveu Kringelbach( )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dance is more than an aesthetic of life - dance embodies life. This is evident from the social history of jive, the marketing of trans-national ballet, ritual healing dances in Italy or folk dances performed for tourists in Mexico, Panama, and Canada. Dance often captures those essential dimensions of social life that cannot be easily put into words. What are the flows and movements of dance carried by migrants and tourists? How is dance used to shape nationalist ideology? What are the connections between dance and ethnicity, gender, health, globalization and nationalism, capitalism, and post-colonialism? Through innovative and wide-ranging case studies, the contributors explore the central role dance plays in culture as leisure commodity, cultural heritage, cultural aesthetic or cathartic social movement

Fighting Words by Tessa Roynon( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«The volume remains an excellent source of inspiration for the classroom and for a form of academic research that builds on praxis and aims for social change.» (Claire Gallen, Commonwealth Essays and Studies, 41.1)
Writing the prison in African literature by Tessa Roynon( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«This is an outstanding study of African prison writing which makes a significant contribution to the study of life writing and twentieth-century African history alike. By focusing on key African writers and intellectuals, all of whom were incarcerated for their politics, Knighton explores in great detail how prison affects the mind, body and imagination, and how it strengthens rather than weakens the will to resist.»(Dr Christopher Warnes, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Cambridge)«Writing the Prison in African Literature is a glittering contribution to the field of African life writing. Countering the prejudice that autobiography is implicitly a Western form, the book demonstrates that the African prison memoir enables agile self-construction through a multi-layered structure and a mutable set of mechanics. Readers will find much to savour in Knighton's astute and understated masterpiece.»(Dr Brendon Nicholls, Lecturer in African and Postcolonial Literatures, University of Leeds)

Fighting words : fifteen books that shaped the postcolonial world by Dominic Davies( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«The volume remains an excellent source of inspiration for the classroom and for a form of academic research that builds on praxis and aims for social change.» (Claire Gallen, Commonwealth Essays and Studies, 41.1)«Importantly, the volume achieves the rare feat of both providing ample material for reflection and leaving its readers wanting to know more about the books examined within its pages. In this sense, Fighting Words is a most stimulating read; it should be of considerable interest to a large number of students and researchers in postcolonial studies.» (Darica Tunca, Recherche Littéraire, 35)

La diaspora de la chambre 107 : ethnographie des pratiques musicales et dansées des Soninkés en Ile-de-France by Claire Clouet( )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Soninkes come from a borderland between Mali, Mauritania and Senegal. Their presence in France has been studied in terms of labour migration, but not as a cultural and artistic diaspora. My work concentrates on this unnoticed social dimension. The ethnographic survey begins in the standardised rooms of a Parisan shelter for migrant workers. First of all, I study how the shelter's inhabitants, only men, shape their living space through sound. They live in confined spaces but the music they listen to and the videos they look at on their smartphones refer to a plethora of spaces in the Paris region and in West Africa. To explore these communities, I join a Soninké dance troupe called Xhambane Kaffo (We are all united in the same language) located in Sarcelles, a short drive north of Paris. Following the dancers and the musicians of this troupe, I go to reception halls, to municipal spaces, to theatres where they lead wedding parties, cultural days, association meetings and elections of diaspora queens. The survey moves then to West Africa : first to Dakar and Bakel, Senegal, following the artistic journey of the Xhambane Kaffo's troupe director ; then to Mauritania, to meet the families of the Parisian migrant workers. Moving from one point to another allowed me to show how these men, categorized as migrants and single, sit within both a transnational and interpersonal social network. My work argues that if some cultural and artistic practices, such as the Soninkés' diasporic encounters, are categorized as « invisible » in the urban area, it is because they are seen through a sedentary vision of space
Migration and the contemporary Mediterranean : shifting cultures in twenty-first-century Italy and beyond by Elleke Boehmer( )

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

This collection of essays presents a study of migration cultures in the contemporary Mediterranean with a particular focus on Italy as a point of migratory convergence and pressure. It investigates different experiences of, and responses to, sea crossings, borders and checkpoints, cultural proximity and distance, race, ethnicity and memory, along with creative responses to the same. In dialogic and complementary interaction, the essays explore violence centring on race as the major determining factor. The book further submits that the interrogation of racialized categories represents different kinds of critical response and resistance, which involve both political struggle and day-to-day survival and coexistence. Following the praxis of cultural and postcolonial studies, the essays focus on the present but draw indispensable insight from past connections and heritage as well as offering prognoses for the future. The ambitious aim of this collection is to identify some useful lines of thought and action that could help us to think outside intricacy, isolation and defensiveness, which characterize most of the public official reactions to migration today
S'imposer en dansant : créativité et prestige des femmes de Mayotte by Elena Bertuzzi( )

1 edition published in 2021 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis proposes a study of debaa, a Sufi musical and choreographic art. Because this practice expresses feminine sociality in a particularly striking way, the debaa has been used as a prism to closely observe the ethos of Mahore women. The author's approach is twofold. On the one hand, thanks to intense bodily participation, her personal experience has become a source of reflection and knowledge. On the other hand, the formal and performative elements of dance have been studied with Kinetography Laban, a system of movement notation. This double perspective, centered on analyzing gestural qualities, ways of doing, modalities of presence, revealed the interplay between bodily experience, dancers' intentionality, and affirmation of community values. The aim of this research was to study a playful, inventive and supportive feminine religiosity in a way that gives central importance to women's voices. The thesis shows that the debaa has undergone a historical evolution owing to the individual and creative initiatives of certain female Koranic teachers. These initiatives were stimulated both by the important role assumed by women in the process of departmentalization of Mayotte and by the need to safeguard the morality of young girls in accordance with traditional customs in today's rapidly changing society. Through the debaa, women now find a kind of arena where they express their conviviality as well as their rivalries for personal and family prestige. This thesis demonstrates the value of looking at the formal properties of dance and at elements of bodily behavior that may at first seem marginal or ephemeral - the quality of a touch, the direction of a gesture or a look - in order to understand essential aspects of the structuring of social relations

Global Ralph Ellison : aesthetics and politics beyond US borders( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This essay collection begins the vast project that is the global history of Ralph Ellison's life and work. It examines how and why this avowedly «American» author read literature and scholarship from across the world and has in turn been widely read outside the borders of the USA. How did Ellison's encounters with the «international» Henry James, the Cambridge Ritualists, the Roman poet Ovid and with Dostoevsky shape both the aesthetics and the politics of his own work? And what is the relationship between Invisible Man and the complex and always evolving political and cultural contexts of South Africa, the USSR and Russia, Germany and Japan since World War II? Contributors from seven different countries - based in Asia, Africa, Europe and the USA - deploy significant archival research both in Ellison's personal library and in the translation and reception histories of his iconic first novel. This study of «the world in Ellison and Ellison in the world» initiates an important new approach in Ellison studies, illuminating hitherto hidden dimensions of the man and his writings
