suggesting both a political critique of the neo-liberal agenda and an acces=

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?
