Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course explores the links between African literatures and institutions; be they academic, socio-cultural, economic or political. The aim is to provide students with knowledge of the entanglements of literature within social bodies, such as publishing houses; literary festivals; LINGOs (literary non-governmental organisations); charities and patronages; mediation and media landscapes; libraries; literary awards; magazines; academic journals; universities and professional associations such as the African Literature Association (ALA) whose 2019 theme builds the core of the course.
Through dedicated readings and engaging class discussions, students will learn about major literary and cultural institutions which have decisively shaped, currently determine and might influence the production, circulation and mediation of literatures from selected parts of Africa and its diasporas. Besides acquiring the methodology to analyse these institutions and critically reflect on their roles in the visibility of the corpus they plan to market, students will also be equipped with epistemological and technical tools they can use to empirically participate in local or regional literary and cultural projects related to Africa and its diasporas.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Prior critical reading of the course material that will be regularly updated on the digital space, active and open participation in class discussions and a group presentation on a selected topic will be expected from all participants.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Given the conversational nature of the course, each participant will have to pass a 20-minutes oral examination either on site or through a digital platform at the end of the semester.
