Art And Ideology In The African Novel: A Study Of The Influence Of Marxism On African Writing By Emmanuel Ngara, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith Apr 1986

Art And Ideology In The African Novel: A Study Of The Influence Of Marxism On African Writing By Emmanuel Ngara, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith

Goodrich Scholarship Faculty Publications

At a time when African writers and critics are deliberately engaged in a search for a matrix within which African literary esthetics may be defined and formulated, Emmanuel Ngara's singular study of the influence of Marx- ism on African writing is a welcome contribution to the critical canons of the modern African novel. Undoubtedly, this search for a matrix calls for a constant definition of the role not only of art but also of the artist in society. On a continent still struggling to liberate itself from the impact of imperialism and Eurocentrism, it is small wonder that social- ...


Review Of Norbert Ndong, Kamerunishce Märchen. Text Und Kontext In Ethnosoziologischer Und Psychologischer Sicht, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1986

Review Of Norbert Ndong, Kamerunishce Märchen. Text Und Kontext In Ethnosoziologischer Und Psychologischer Sicht, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

African folklore has come of age. No longer apologetic, it assumes its position among the literatures of the nations without any pleading for its literary value, nor with any defensive rhetorics to ward off unwarrented interpretations. Native scholars are taking charge of their own literatures with a commanding authority that combines profound knowledge of their own tradition with the breadth and depth of folklore scholarship. In doing so they are setting new scholarly standards that advance our research methods from a phase of participant-observation to a new level of indigenous scholarship, leaving behind the sisyphean task of interpreting traditional texts ...


Critical Perspectives On Ngugi Wa Thiong'o By G. D. Killam, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith Jan 1985

Critical Perspectives On Ngugi Wa Thiong'o By G. D. Killam, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith

Goodrich Scholarship Faculty Publications

Acknowledging the vast and continuing "realignments of power and long overdue reassessments of the cultures of the third world," the editors of the Critical Perspectives series propose, through a projected thirty-six critical monographs, to provide Euro-American audiences with the "documents and polemics" which reflect the reality of these realignments and reassessments. The thirteenth volume to appear in the series, Critical Perspectives on Ngugi wa Thiong' o, is one such document, comprising twenty-four essays by and about Ngugi, East Africa's foremost novelist and social critic (see WLT 59:1, pp. 26-30). Divided into six sections, the volume contains interviews with ...

The Development Of The Eastern Africa Collection At Syracuse University, Robert G. Gregory Oct 1984

The Development Of The Eastern Africa Collection At Syracuse University, Robert G. Gregory

The Courier

With the inauguration of an African studies program in 1962, Syracuse University began the development of a unique collection of records relating to the eastern side of Africa. The most important part of the collection, the core, is related to Kenya, but there are also valuable records on the other countries of eastern Africa, nine in all, extending from Ethiopia to South Africa. Most of the items in this collection are on microfilm—an extraordinary holding of nearly four thousand reels of official and private records—but there is also much of value in supplementary books, periodicals, and documents in ...

Tomini, Jennifer W. Nourse Jan 1984

Tomini, Jennifer W. Nourse

Sociology and Anthropology Faculty Publications

The Tomini of Indonesia occupy the northern Sulawesi peninsula from Donggala to Gorontalo. The name "Tomini" is both a geographic and linguistic designation. Geographically, Tomini is a thin strip of land which borders the western edge of Tomini Bay; linguistically, Tomini is a subgroup of western Central Sulawesi languages which include Toli-toli, Dondo, Bolano, Tinombo, Kasimbar, Dampelas and Ndau. Although linguistics formerly thought all Tomini languages were mutually intelligible and the different names merely referred to dialects, recent research has asserted that each group forms a separate language. Supposedly these multiple language originated from the area's many political-trading empires ...

The Young Black Male In Foster Care: The St. Vincent's Hall Experience, Robert L. Tate Jr. Jul 1982

The Young Black Male In Foster Care: The St. Vincent's Hall Experience, Robert L. Tate Jr.

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

The primary intent of this thesis is to examine foster care services. An attempt has been made to study, from a dual perspective, the relevance of discharge and the relevance of foster care services for Black children and the Black community.

Juvenile boys are increasingly exhibiting behavioral problems such that the family is having to look outside of the nuclear and extended units for supportive alternatives. While the intent of the thesis is to examine discharge and Black children in foster care, the major concern is the institutionalization of Black males and the impact this syndrome is having on the ...

Review Of Joseph C. Miller, The African Past Speaks: Essays On Oral Tradition And History, Dan Ben-Amos May 1981

Review Of Joseph C. Miller, The African Past Speaks: Essays On Oral Tradition And History, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

The African past certainly speaks, but in what language? Is it the language of testimonies and accounts, or is it the language of metaphors, of symbols, and of structures? And once identified, what and whose code will decipher the message and unveil the secrets oral tradition both reveals and conceals? Ten scholars—all historians, Vansina vintage—join in this volume to answer these and related questions, and to counter the critique anthropologists mounted against their mentor's historical method. The eleventh contributor is Vansina himself, who has the last word.

Review Of Mabel H. Ross And Barbara K. Walker, "On Another Day..." Tales Told Among The Nkundo Of Zaire, Dan Ben-Amos Aug 1980

Review Of Mabel H. Ross And Barbara K. Walker, "On Another Day..." Tales Told Among The Nkundo Of Zaire, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

From the end of 1972 until the middle of 1974, Mrs. Mabel H. Ross, a missionary, traveled in Central Zaire among the Nkundo people, recording their oral narratives. The present volume includes the English translation of these tales, supplemented by two texts translated from the Flemish and one from Lonkundo that appeared in A. de Rop, De gesproken woordkunst van de Nkundo (Tervuren: Museé Royale du Congo Belge, 1956) and in G. Hulstaert and A. de Rop (eds.), Rechtspraakfabels van de Nkundo (Tervuren: La Commission de Linguistique Africaine, 1954), and by eighteen texts translated from Lonkundo that were first published ...


Review Of Loreto Todd, Some Day Been Dey: West African Pidgin Folktales, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1980

Review Of Loreto Todd, Some Day Been Dey: West African Pidgin Folktales, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

Neither the general bibliography on African oral literature by Harold Scheub, African Oral Narratives, Proverbs, Riddles, Poetry, and Song (Boston: G. K. Hall & Co., 1977), nor the more specific bibliography by Virginia and Mark Delancety, A Bibliography of Cameroon Folklore, an Occasional Publication of the Literature Committee of the African Studies Association (Waltham, Mass.: African Studies Association, 1972) list any collection of Pidgin narratives anywhere from Africa, let alone the Cameroon. Hence the significance of the present collection of tales. Yet its import extends beyond the sheer textual documentation of narrative in a language, the use of which, it has ...


Review Of Isidore Okpewho, The Epic In Africa: Toward A Poetics Of The Oral Performance, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1980

Review Of Isidore Okpewho, The Epic In Africa: Toward A Poetics Of The Oral Performance, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

When Ruth Finnegan published her book Oral Literature in Africa (Oxford: The Clarendon Press, 1970), out of five hundred and fifty-eight pages she devoted only two and half pages to the epic, and even these were negative. "All in all," she wrote, "epic poetry does not seem to be a typical African form. . . .Certain elements of epic also come into many other forms of poetry and prose. But in general terms and apart from Islamic influences, epic seems to be of remarkably little significance in African oral literature, and the a priori assumption that epic is the natural form for ...


Teaching The Bible To Black Africans : (Toward A Methodological Approach To Bible Teaching Applied To The Beti Tribes Of South-Cameroon), Joseph Nkou Jan 1980

Teaching The Bible To Black Africans : (Toward A Methodological Approach To Bible Teaching Applied To The Beti Tribes Of South-Cameroon), Joseph Nkou

Dissertations

Problem. This study is concerned with methods of teaching the Bible in Black Africa and particularly among the Beti tribes of South Cameroon. The Gospel message has been brought to the Beti people through the ministry of Western instructors. Some have claimed their teaching to be irrelevant to the Africans. It appeared necessary, then, to find out in what way that teaching was irrelevant to Beti people and to suggest positive methods which could be applied in order to facilitate the Beti grasp of the Christian message and, consequently, to predispose them to a full and inner acceptance o f ...


Arab Americans And Their Communities Of Cleveland, Mary Haddad Macron Jan 1979

Arab Americans And Their Communities Of Cleveland, Mary Haddad Macron

Cleveland Memory

The author of this monograph has made a contribution in describing the progress of the Syrian and Lebanese American community in the Cleveland area. These same experiences were similarly reflected in many other communities throughout the land, including my own. This monograph includes not only the early history of these people from their origins in the Mediterranean, it focuses particularly on their daily lives as immigrants to America -- and on the difficulties they encountered in trying to maintain their traditional institutions in a new land. –Excerpt from the Introduction by Danny Thomas, Founder of St. Jude's Children's Research ...


Kenya Boran Revisited, Norman Miller Jan 1979

Kenya Boran Revisited, Norman Miller

Open Dartmouth: Faculty Open Access Scholarship

Peter Boru was standing on a jagged rock over looking the valley where we had filmed together in 1972. The Boran village with its 18 huts, the cattle corrals, and the meandering animal trails had all disappeared. Only dark patches of grass suggested where corrals had once been inundated with cattle manure, and even to see these one had to know exactly where to look. The house sites were totally gone. The entire dusty village I remembered had vanished. "Yes, it is silent now," I agreed. We were both to be proven wrong within the week.


The Political Evolution Of Cameroon, 1884-1961, Victor Julius Ngoh Jan 1979

The Political Evolution Of Cameroon, 1884-1961, Victor Julius Ngoh

Dissertations and Theses

The research problem is an analysis of the political evolution of Cameroon from a colony in 1884 to an independent state in 1961. It involves not only the transition of the country from a colony to an independent state per se, but also the various factors which kindled the rise of nationalism in the country. The problem is rendered more interesting and complex by the fact that the country had, at different times in its colonial history, been a German colony, as well as British and French colonies – although technically Britain and France administered their respective portions of the country ...


Ifa Divination Poetry By Wande Abimbola, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith Oct 1978

Ifa Divination Poetry By Wande Abimbola, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith

Goodrich Scholarship Faculty Publications

Until the publication of Wande Abimbola's !fa Divin­ation Poetry much of the scant information available on the fascinating but complex Ifa geomantic system, commonly identified with the Yoruba of Western Nigeria, has been limited to the general comments of anthropologists and folklorists, whose studies of the system have been less significant parts of larger studies. !fa Divination Poetry is the product of long years of apprenticeship, diligent data collecting from renowned Ifa priests and research. This literary work is appropriately divided into two parts. The first part is a brief history of the elaborate system of divina­tion ...

The Modern Local Historian In Africa, Dan Ben-Amos Jan 1978

The Modern Local Historian In Africa, Dan Ben-Amos

Departmental Papers (NELC)

The introduction of literacy into African societies has added writing and printing as dimensions to the communication of historical knowledge. A by-product of this development is the availability of new information sources for historical-folkloristic research, namely, the works of local historians. In most cases these appear in thin pamphlets, published by local printers, and circulate among a local educated public; occasionally, their reading audience extends beyond the boundaries of the original indigenous community and reaches university historians, who treat these publications as if they were primary sources for historical reconstruction. They are thought to reflect the common view of the ...

Restitution Of Cultural Material To Africa, E. Kofi Agorsah Jan 1977

Restitution Of Cultural Material To Africa, E. Kofi Agorsah

Black Studies Faculty Publications and Presentations

As African nations search for means to establish viable and authentic cultural identities, an increasing number of demands have been made on European Governments to return art objects, archives and antiquities taken during the colonial era. In a sense these demands come as attempts to turn back history, the history which denuded Africa of its culture in order to impress the fact of colonial subjugation.

For centuries, the movement of African art and antiquities has been an outward flow and as thousands of military and political conquerors, administrators, missionaries and adventurers took home souvenirs of their African experiences, and with ...

The Fundamental Reality In The Ontology Of African People, Charles Ereraina Osume May 1976

The Fundamental Reality In The Ontology Of African People, Charles Ereraina Osume

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

“The fundamental reality in the ontology of African people” is an effort to alert the reader to a crucial omission in most contemporary studies on the religion or culture of African people. The majority of the current anthropologists (scholars in the field of contemporary religions) only make a passing reference to the spirit beings that infest the world of traditional Africa.

Apart from inadequate attempts to psychologize the religions of pre-literary man, investigators of pre-scientific cultures have for the most part been unable to account for the unflinching loyalty and meticulous devotion of traditional man to spirit beings. The reason ...
