African Narratives (EAS3190)

30 credits

Moving across genre and medium, this module introduces you to the range and dynamism of narratives produced by African authors from 1960 to today. You will explore the ways in which literary texts – from short stories to film, memoir to poetry, novels to Twitter fictions – engage with and navigate identities, geographies and their modes of production. Particular emphasis will be placed on the spaces of literary production through which texts emerge and circulate – from small magazines to film festivals, blogs to literary prizes – ­making this module particularly suitable for those of you interested in a career in publishing or the creative industries.
