Le (NéO)Colonialisme LittéRaire : Quatre Romans Africains Face À L'Institution LittéRaire Parisienne (1950-1970), Vivan Steemers

Le texte littéraire ne naît pas en apesanteur, selon Edward Saïd. Il se présente dans un contexte historique et social et dépend pour son existence d'instances de pouvoir spécifiques : maisons d'édition, presse, critique, comités de prix littéraires. Ce constat s'impose avec encore plus de force lorsque l'on considère la situation des auteurs africains francophones qui sont presque entièrement tributaires de l'infrastructure éditoriale parisienne et des autres instances légitimantes du pays (anciennement) colonisateur. Cette étude présente le discours éditorial et critique de la première édition de quatre romans africains francophones publiés en métropole pendant les années ...

In the early hours of the Sunday 19 September 2004, two men were seen running away from McCauley's Beach towards the coastal village of Thirroul, located south of Sydney in the northern suburbs of the Illawarra region of New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Moments later the nearby Sandon Point Aboriginal Tent Embassy (SPATE) burst into flames. The complete destruction of the embassy's structure and the life-threatening situation for the five people who were asleep inside marked a significant point in the long-running dispute over the future of the Sandon Point area.

Curriculum Leadership Theorizing And Crafting: Regenerative Themes And Humble Togetherness, Vonzell Agosto, Omar Salaam, Donna Elam

Vonzell Agosto

This chapter illustrates how indigenous concepts, philosophies, and traditions were introduced into a doctoral course on curriculum theory and undertaken by students to inform their development of cultural and curriculum leadership. A central activity in the course was clay-molding. Qualitative data in the form of personal reflections and student work samples (pottery, book review, essay) are accompanied by academic literature to provide insight into the question of how indigenous concepts support sense-making in the development of curriculum leadership that is culturally emancipatory. Personal reflections on the course from the professor and student are extended by a critical friend who contributes ...
