The implications of the ubiquitous languages of 'globalization' for literar=
y and cultural critique are far from clear. The term is deeply ambivalent, =
suggesting both a political critique of the neo-liberal agenda and an acces=
sion to the universalizing assumptions of its corporate entities. This work=
shop offers literary critics the opportunity to assess and openly debate th=
e significance of the theoretical and political frameworks of globalization=
 for the study of literature.=20

COLONIAL EDUCATION IN AFRICAN LITERATURES

Among other things, the colonial school-whether in Anglophone,
Francophone or Lusophone Africa--led to the creation of new human types
as well as new social structures and interactions. How is colonial
education represented in African literatures? What was (and has been)
its overall impact? In what ways did the colonial school affect human
interactions? How did the colonizer use the educational apparatus? How
did the colonized react to and use the school? What are the contemporary
manifestations or vestiges of the colonial curriculum?
