AAS 3710 - African Worlds through Life Stories

This course examines an array of African cultural worlds from the perspective of a variety of different life story genres. We will be addressing biography, autobiography, autofiction, memoirs, diaries, biographical documentary film and various artistic representations. Some critics claim that such genres, concentrating on the ‘individual’ in Western terms, are not appropriate for representing African experiences of personhood.
