Session type: Panel
Organized by: Bojana Coulibaly
Send abstracts or inquiries to: email@example.com
While the creation of African national literatures in African languages as a decolonial alternative to African Europhone literatures is not a new concept, the standardization of African languages and a growing body of Afrophone literatures participate in reshaping the political, social and epistemological environments of the continent. This panel seeks to examine how African Afrophone imagination helps build a sustainable global cultural future through the various themes and literary devices used by writers and how African national environments are being impacted by the growing presence of Afrophone literatures. Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief bio to Bojana Coulibaly, (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 5, 2018.
