AFA 307 - Meet African Authors Live


Sophomore standing. (3).

Over the past decade, the renowned Visiting African Writers Series has brought to Flint world-famous creative artists, representing all parts of the African continent and writing in a variety of genres, who show passionate commitment to social justice issues such as feminism/womanism, the environment and immigration, and write about these and other contemporary issues in their home countries, Africa and the world. Students explore African literature, popular fiction, cultures and lifestyles through the eyes of these artists, viewing videos taken as part of the visiting writer series, reading and analyzing excerpts of the authors’ works from interdisciplinary perspectives, and examining issues of identity, diversity and naming. Graded ABCDE.
