Interdisciplinary Approaches to Africa
Reihe: Afrikanische Studien/African Studies
Bd. 23, 2004, 240 S., 19.90 EUR, 19.90 CHF, br., ISBN 3-8258-7787-6
This book shows new approaches to the African continent and its various cultures, explores different facets of African cultures as they exist or undergo changes, and illustrates how and where African and European cultures come or have come into contact, interact, and create something new. The contributors are social, cultural and literary scientists, linguists, and artists of various cultural backgrounds who investigate topics on an African country and who use novel and often interdisciplinary methods. Their joint interest is a better understanding of the multifaceted character of the African continent, which is still often depicted as a cultural monolith, by exploring contemporary African literature, theatre, film, music and the use of linguistic methods as well as the experience of Africans in diasporas.
