AAST 244 - Modern African Literature

3 HU, CD, WR
First Semester. An examination of 20th and 21st century African literature in English with a focus on the political and economic realities of modern day Africa. Keeping in mind that being a writer in Africa is a political act, often punishable by imprisonment and even death, we will appreciate African literature as a platform for political and social critique, as well as the multiplicity of African lives and cultures. Some authors discussed: Chinua Achebe, Ama Ata Aidoo, and Ben Okri.
