Readng Power: Social Justice and African Literature

Professor Joanne St. Lewis will share her passion for questions related to social justice and universal human rights through an innovative and engaging pedagogical approach. She will present three novels written by African authors to introduce and discuss the topic of human rights in the world. The three novels featured in this reading activity will take us through the multi-faceted lives of contemporary African women. The struggle for such universal aspirations as equality, voice and self-expression has a unique textual quality and social reality in Africa. The three novels that will be featured in this lecture series are: The Hangman’s Game by Karen King-Aribisala, Harmattan Rain by Ayesha Harruna Attah, and Your Madness Not Mine: Stories of Cameroon by Juliana Makuchi Nfah-Abbenyi. The novels will serve as a catalyst for discussions beyond the boundaries.

This course is being offered through the Centre for Continuing Education of the University of Ottawa. The next course will be in the Fall of 2011. The books in that session will be: Pumpkin Seeds and Other Gifts edited by Helen Moffett and Violet Barungi, The Heart of Redness by Zakes Mda, The Stone Virgins by Yvonne Vera and On Black Sisters Street by Chika Unigwe.
