Contingent Canons : African Literature and the Politics of Location, Paperback / softback Book

Contingent Canons : African Literature and the Politics of Location Paperback / softback

Part of the Elements in Publishing and Book Culture series

Description

This Element explores the mechanisms through which 'African literature', as a market category, has been consecrated within the global literary field.

Drawing on archival, textual and field-based research, it proposes that the normative story of African literary writing has functioned to efface a broader material history of African literary production located on and oriented to the continent itself.
