This introductory lecture course offers a survey of African literature from the early 20th century to the present. The lecture will feature different eras, languages, genres and respective historical contexts. In doing so, the subsequent sessions will be pillared on theories and concepts such as narratology, feminism, gender and sexuality, anti-colonialism and decolonisation, Afrofuturism and speculative fiction. There will be a Übung accompanying the lecture series. Reading assignments will be made available from the e-learning workspace.

Given the current situation, this course will be given digitally via Zoom. Please get in touch with the lecturer as soon as possible and register in E-Learning.
