Get Africa after Modernism: Transitions in Literature, Media, PDF

By Michael Janis

Africa after Modernism strains shifts in views on African tradition, arts, and philosophy from the clash with eu modernist interventions within the weather of colonialist aggression to offer identitarian positions within the weather of globalism, multiculturalism, and mass media. via targeting what could be known as deconstructive moments in twentieth-century Africanist suggestion – on highbrow landmarks, innovative rules, crises of recognition, literary and philosophical debates – this research seems to be at African modernity and modernism from serious postcolonial views. An attempt to caricature modern frameworks of world intersubjective kinfolk reflecting African cultures and matters needs to face up to taking modernism as a time period of African periodization, or master-narrative, yet as a constellation of discursive and subjective kinds that obtains upon the current second in African literature, philosophy, and cultural background. Africa after Modernism argues for a philosophical awareness and pan-African multiculturalist ethos that function, after the deconstruction of Eurocentrism, past self/other paradigms of exoticism or West/Africa political ideologies, in discussion with postcolonial ways to cultural reciprocity.
