LLS 1334 - Emerging African Literary Voices

Credits: 3 hrs.
How are gender roles negotiated in African cultures? How does the traditional African lifestyle fit in the current global setup? What are the major concerns of emerging African writers? How does globalization facilitate or impede the vitality of African traditional values?  Selected literary works will be used to open conversations that trigger fresh and bold questions revolving around important political, socio-cultural, and economic issues in Africa.  Throughout the semester, you will investigate these questions and emerge with a better understanding of African people and their cultures.
