African Articulations

Series Editors: Professor Stephanie Newell & Dr Ranka Primorac


African Articulations showcases cutting-edge research into Africa’s cultural texts and practices, broadly understood to include written and oral literatures, visual arts, music, and public discourse and media of all kinds. Building on the idea of ‘articulation’ as a series of cultural connections, as a clearly voiced argument and as a dynamic social encounter, African Articulations opens up innovative perspectives on the richness of African locations and networks. Refusing to privilege the internationally visible above the supposedly ephemeral local cultural spaces and networks, African Articulations provides indispensable resources for students and teachers of contemporary culture.
