L’Idéologie Du "Topicalisme" Thématique Dans Les Romans Africains : De Yambo Ouologuem À Calixthe Beyala, Kasongo Mulenda Kapanga

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

This presentation stems from the debate on the quality of the African novel each time an African work — here the novel — is awarded a literary prize. This has been the case since René Maran’s Batouala and until recently with Calixthe Beyala’s Les honneurs perdus (1996). The paper examines discursive elements both constant and new foregrounded at each period of the debate. There are two competing theories at the heart of the discussion that are trying to neutralize each other. On the one hand, there is the entrenched belief of the African continent still in need of epistemological assistance ...

"The World And Africa": World-Systems Theories And The Erasure Of East Africa From World History, Jesse Benjamin

Jesse Benjamin

The article examines how some world historical and world systems narratives have or not have integrated Africa or various parts of the African continent into their models. It focuses on East Africa, a place which has experienced a considerable revolt against colonial biases since the 1960s. Moreover, a review of several and most popular and acclaimed scholars of world historical scholarships were presented with the aim of demonstrating that the colonial biases of African negation have not been swept aside.
