DETENTION and AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL TEXTS from AFRICA

updated: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 3:45pm
ASA-UK, Birmingham, UK, 11-13 September 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 6, 2018

Nelson Mandela’s A long walk to freedom (1994) is probably the most well-known autobiography from Africa that relates to the issue of detention, but it is certainly not the only one. In the course of Africa’s history, many autobiographical texts have been produced that relate to confinement and imprisonment. Thus, including Mandela’s autobiographical narrative, there exists a large body of texts that relates to the conditions of imprisonment during Apartheid. Furthermore, a number of African autobiographical texts discuss colonial detention; a case in point being the Mau Mau memoirs from Kenya.
