About this product
- DescriptionThis book contributes to a growing corpus of writing on the body, bringing new perspectives to this fascinating and topical subject. Feminist, psychoanalytic and queer readings, among others, have demonstrated the extent of the functions and roles fulfilled by the body, as well as the number of critical perspectives it can serve. However, by and large, African representations of the body have been overlooked. This coherent volume brings together essays on the portrayal of the body in African art, film, literature, photography and theatre. The book includes thematically linked contributions which explore issues of power and representation, and reflects current trends in the study of the body and more broadly within the field of African Studies.
- Author BiographyThe Editor: Charlotte Baker is Lecturer in French in the Department of European Languages and Cultures at Lancaster University. She holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in French and Francophone Literatures from the University of Nottingham and her research interests centre broadly on twentieth-century French and African francophone fictional writing. Her current research focuses on the theory and representation of the body and identity, and more particularly on the representation of marginalised and stigmatised groups in sub-Saharan Africa.
