African Intellectuals: Rethinking Politics, Language, Gender and Development
Zed Books, 2005 - History - 248 pages
Compared with Asia or Latin America, Africa has experienced much higher rates of emigration of its intelligentsia to North America and Europe, and frequent displacement within the continent. This rare overview of the history, fate and future roles explores their relationship to nationalism and the Pan African project; the indigenous language of African intellectuals; women intellectuals; and the role of the expanding African academic diaspora.
