Rethinking African Cultural Production

Frieda Ekotto, Kenneth W. Harrow, and an international group of scholars set forth new understandings of the conditions of contemporary African cultural production in this forward-looking volume. Arguing that it is impossible to understand African cultural productions without knowledge of the structures of production, distribution, and reception that surround them, the essays grapple with the shifting notion of what "African" means when many African authors and filmmakers no longer live or work in Africa. While the arts continue to flourish in Africa, addressing questions about marginalization, what is center and what periphery, what traditional or conservative, and what progressive or modern requires an expansive view of creative production.

Frieda Ekotto is Professor of Afroamerican and African Studies, and Comparative Literature and Francophone Studies at the University of Michigan.

Kenneth W. Harrow is Distinguished Professor of English at Michigan State University. He is author of Trash: African Cinema from Below (IUP, 2013).

Reviews

"6/1/16"—Times Literary Supplement

"Rethinking African Cultural Production offers a useful compendium of essays that traces trajectories of debate, identifies a wealth of understudied and emerging areas of scholarship, and exemplifies the diversity of African cultural production as much as scholarship on it. It will be helpful to anyone concerned to reflect on the positionalities and assumptions that structure past and present academic conversations and institutions."—Media Industries

"Ekotto and Harrow do an excellent job of contextualizing and framing the new parameters that must be part of the discussion when addressing African cultural production, critical theory, cultural studies, contemporary literature, film, media, the visual, cultural representation, and performance."—Odile Cazenave, Boston University

"Rethinking African Cultural Production is a thoughtful collection that scholars and students interested in cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, and Afropolitanism willnd illuminating."—Bhekizizwe Peterson, AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEW

"Rethinking African Cultural Production is a thoughtful collection that scholars and students interested in cosmopolitanism, transnationalism, and Afropolitanism will find illuminating."—Bhekizizwe Peterson, University of the Witwatersrand, AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEW
