Africa and Europe: En/countering Myths: Essays on Literature and Cultural Politics
Carlotta von Maltzan
P. Lang, 2003 - Literary Criticism - 288 pages
The contributions in this volume examine literary and other texts as well as cultural and political discourses in relation to issues of identity formation and dis-formation, of self and society and of the socially local within the global. All these issues come into play through the exploration of the fantasmatic space of mutual mis-recognition and mythmaking between coloniser and colonised, between 'Africa' and 'Europe'.
