AAS 3745 - Currents in African Literature

In this course, we will read a sampling of some exciting new works of fiction from Africa’s young and established writers. In particular, we will examine the literary innovations that African writers use to narrate issues affecting the continent such as dictatorship, the lingering effects of colonization, the postcolonial nation state, the traumas of war and geo-politics, religion, gender and sexuality, and migration, among others.
