AAS 3930 - African Authors

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): AAS 1010 or ENG 1020

Description: African Authors examines the lives and classic works of writers born on the African continent. The literature of the authors selected for close study speaks to life in countries that traverse the continent, representing multiple perspectives that reflect pre-colonial to post-colonial realities. English language texts are utilized, as well as works translated from French, Arabic, and Kikuyu. The overall content of the course emphasizes the impact of colonialism on African nations and the continuation of the African oral tradition in literary works. Supplemental aspects of the course engage critical thought on the place of Egypt in the African world and the politics of language choice on an African text.
