Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course is designed to probe the multiple perspectives on post-independent African wars and conflicts captured in selected 21st Century African narratives, autobiographies/biographies, documentaries, and fictional films. While chosen works have an African focus, creators of such works are both African and non-African. The study of texts will require an engagement with the nexus of factors, fetishism of violence, actors, psycho-social effects, and national reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts thematized in these works.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel
