For years, African writers such as Chinua Achebe, J. M. Coetzee, Athol Fugard, Ousmane Sembène, Ama Ata Aidoo and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie have contributed a unique global perspective on diverse topics such as colonialism, oppression, and the cultural and historical identity of Africa.

This panel seeks papers which discuss the unique perceptions of these and other influential African authors, and how the authors' views provide readers with an intimate, firsthand view of African living. Topics could include but are not limited to: postcolonialism, ethnicity and national identity, cultural studies and historical approaches and gender studies.
