African Literature in the Wake of Violence

Africa’s violent history frames much of its fiction and film, but many
writers and filmmakers are turning their attention toward the more
complicated process of moving past violence to the task of rebuilding. We
seek papers on literature and film that deal with issues that emerge in the
wake of violence, such as truth commissions, public and private forms of
grief, refugee camps, and the reinstatement of order.

Please send 250-word abstracts and inquiries to Katy Hanggi
( by March 15, 2008.
