Panel Discussion: African Literary Arts and Alternative Modernities
Campus Center, Multipurpose Room  7:00 pm
Gabeba Baderoon, Helon Habila, and Binyavanga Wainaina, three writers from South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya, read from their works and discuss what and why they write it.

Africa has changed radically since most African countries achieved independence in the 1960s, but has its literature also changed? What are the effects of globalization, mass culture and other postmodern developments on the new African writers? These are some of the questions the writers will try to answer.

As part of the Chinua Achebe Fellowship in Global African Studies, the panel is funded by a grant from Ford Foundation.
