(Formerly LITR 228) This course is designed to provide an introduction to the literatures of the African continent. Over the course of the semester, we will read and discuss works from several different African nations, including Kenya, Senegal, Ghana, Nigeria, Guinea, and others. These works will represent different literary genres: essays, a play, poetry, short stories, and novels. They will also include, albeit in written form, works from the oral literatures fundamental to the African canon. Of course, in a single semester, we cannot possibly do justice to the rich literary tradition of all of Africa. However, I hope that this course will give you a sense of some of Africa's most noteworthy authors, literary forms, and concerns.
