READING: Achterflap “Als ik een lied van Afrika ken – zo peinsde ik – van de giraffe en van de Afrikaanse nieuwe maan, van de ploegen in het veld en de bezwete gezichten van de koffieplukkers, kent Afrika dan ook een lied van mij?” Out of Africa is een onwaarschijnlijk mooi geschreven roman over het leven op een koffieplantage in Afrika. In 1937 schreef Karen Blixen haar memoires en daarin doet ze hartstochtelijk verslag van haar avonturen in Kenia. Over de natuur van de Highlands, de mentaliteit van de verschillende stammen, de gewoontes van de Kikoejoe, de Somali en de Masai. De roman is een veelstemmig lied van prachtige verhalen, de moeite waard door zowel de mooie schrijfstijl als de diepe interesse voor de inheemse bevolking en de liefde voor de natuur. Karen Blixen hield van het Afrikaanse landschap met zijn rijke plant- en diersoorten. Zij voelde zich thuis bij de oorspronkelijke bewoners, voor wie zij raadgeefster, dokter, rechter en lerares was. ‘Onbevooroordeeldheid, zelfspot en waardering voor ironie van het lot zijn eigenschappen die Blixen met de Afrikanen deelt en daarop is hun wederzijdse verstandhouding op gebaseerd. Deze eigenschappen geven aan Blixens lyrische schildering van een verloren paradijs een onbevangen en lichtvoetig karakter.’ – Manet van Montfrans in NRC Handelsblad ‘Haar verslag van haar avonturen in Afrika, geschreven nadat ze haar geliefde plantage moest opgeven en teurgkeerde naar Denemarken, is dat van een meesterverteller. Een vrouw die door John Updike “een van de meest pittoreske en tevens flamboyante literaire persoonlijkheden van de eeuw werd gekarakteriseerd.' – The Times ‘Karen Blixen schrijft prachtig. Een aanrader om te lezen. Een ware klassieker.’ – The New York Times Karen Blixen, barones von Blixen-Finecke (Rungsted, 17 april 1885 – 7 september 1962), schreef onder het pseudoniem Isak Dinesen en publiceerde in het Deens en het Engels. Naast het semi-autobiografische Out of Africa, over haar tijd in Kenia, publiceerde ze nog zeven andere boeken. De roman werd in 1985 onder de oorspronkelijk titel Out of Africa verfilmd door Sydney Pollack, met Meryl Streep en Robert Redford in de hoofdrollen.

READING: For the first two thirds of our evolutionary history, we hominins were restricted to Africa. Dating from about two million years ago, hominin fossils first appear in Eurasia. This volume addresses many of the issues surrounding this initial hominin intercontinental dispersal. Why did hominins first leave Africa in the early Pleistocene and not earlier? What do we know about the adaptations of the hominins that dispersed - their diet, locomotor abilities, cultural abilities? Was there a single dispersal event or several? Was the hominin dispersal part of a broader faunal expansion of African mammals northward? What route or routes did dispersing populations take?

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: At the heart of this book is the argument that the fact that so many post-structuralist French intellectuals have a strong ‘colonial’ connection, usually with Algeria, cannot be a coincidence. The ‘biographical’ fact that so many French intellectuals were born in or otherwise connected with French Algeria has often been noted, but it has never been theorised. Ahluwalia makes a convincing case that post-structuralism in fact has colonial and postcolonial roots. This is an important argument, and one that ‘connects’ two theoretical currents that continue to be of great interest, post-structuralism and postcolonialism. The re-reading of what is now familiar material against the background of de-colonial struggles demonstrates the extent to which it is this new condition that prompted theory to question long-held assumptions inscribed in the European colonial enterprise. The wide-ranging discussion, ranging across authors as different as Foucault, Derrida, Fanon, Althusser, Cixous, Bourdieu and Lyotard, enables the reader to make connections that have remained unnoticed or been neglected. It also brings back into view a history of struggles, both political and theoretical, that has shaped the landscape of critique in the social sciences and humanities. This clear and lucid discussion of important and often difficult thinkers will be widely read and widely debated by students and academics alike.

READING: Nigeria, once a hopelessly beleaguered society, has risen from the ashes and is a spiritually revived nation. One of the main contributors to this book states: "It is safe to say that the Church and effectual prayers have kept our nation from complete anarchy and genocide. The impact of Christianity is evident wherever you go. If you look a little deeper, listen a little closer, you will see and hear the myriad changes that are subtlety transforming our nation into a nation that truly fears the Lord." The miraculous is evident in the church of Nigeria. Out of Africa offers the testimony of numerous Nigerian pastors who are making a difference for God all over the world. Learn from churches who are experiencing a radical move of God.

READING: From the word go, the style and tenor of this book is set. And it doesn't take long before we realise we are in for a raunchy, realistic, roughish ride; so seat yourself comfortably. Be transported from the relentlessly chaotic assault on the senses that is India to the cool Himalayan magnificence of trekking to Everest Base Camp. Through the vastness of Australia, unable to escape the predictably painful experiences of England's cricket team, before plunging into the outdoor activity challenges of New Zealand. Then, perhaps most compelling of all, the continent of Africa from the bottom up. An ambitious journey overland encompassing Africa's most extreme tip right up to its snow-covered top, Mt Kilimanjaro. Here it is not so much the final destination as all that is entailed to get there that informs and entertains. With a refreshing attitude, this book doesn't try to be the great African travel book drowning you with its intensity; Bruce Chatwin it is not. But it is a breath of fairly fresh air (excluding a lot of dust and some graphically described indigenous odours). The tone is conversational and intimate; the author takes the reader along with him on his (slightly) bumpy travels, and there is a splendid lack of any sort of political correctness, although Alistair is actually broad-minded and unprejudiced (minus a few Australians). He understands the people he meets. Without wanting to be remotely serious-because he isn't-this is a book that is kind and understanding of different places and people. The author observes, records, and attempts to shed light on people, places and experiences that are not of the everyday variety. The traveller-both experienced and of the armchairvariety-could have many a worse companion than this book.

Pages 402
ISBN 9780838757291
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This book offers a richly detailed panorama of contemporary Spanish Caribbean literature and culture, as well as a compelling theoretical exploration of how authors of the Spanish Caribbean (Cuba, Santo Domingo, and Puerto Rico) have incorporated the cultural legacy of Africa into their narrative fictions. The book offers an in-depth analysis of cultural and religious expressions associated with Africa in the Caribbean and of the complex codification associated with the representation of those expressions. Voices Out of Africa explores how literary representations of Africa in the Spanish Caribbean construct a self-referential discourse about Africa in a Caribbean landscape, and examines how Afro-Caribbean practices, rituals, local memories, and belief systems inform such discourse. It is a textual journey through the multiple layers of the region's cultural expressions. It is also a work of scholarship and theory accessible to scholars and to interested laypersons in Afro-Caribbean lore and culture. Julia Cuervo Hewitt is Associate Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at Pennsylvania State University.

READING: New areas of intellectual endeavours including postcolonial, transatlantic, global, and cultural studies have facilitated conversations that cut across traditional academic boundaries. Indeed, aside from precipitating more stimulating intellectual dialogues, the advent of multi-disciplinarity has also enabled literary and cultural theorists, critics, students, and teachers to connect and to integrate diverse academic disciplines and schools of thought in the pursuit of a common task. Of the many areas that have benefited from this trend, it is perhaps in the realm of Afro-Hispanic, Luso-Brazilian, and Latin American studies that one notices a vibrant conversation that deals with the deep historical, social, economic, and political bonds that have connected and still connect Africa to the Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian worlds. As these bonds acquire profound meanings in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, scholars from diverse academic backgrounds find new ways to explore these connections. It is in the spirit of this endeavour that the creative artists, scholars of cultural and literary theory and critics whose works are presented in this anthology, attempt to examine wide-ranging themes from colonization, slavery, imperialism, religion, music, and literature. Most of the essays in this collection address long-standing issues related to identity construction, linguistic legacies, religious and cultural beliefs and practices. Others confront questions of migration and immigration, configurations of female agency, and Hispanic pedagogy in Africa and elsewhere. What makes this volume unique and interesting is not only the idea of exploring, examining, and thinking the old in new ways and the new in old ways but also, advancing the conversation of the relationship between Africa and the Afro-Hispanic, Luso-Brazilian, and Latin American worlds through different intellectual and artistic prisms.

READING: This book has systematically demolished many of Mary Lefkowitz's myths. This book proves that Socrates, Cleopatra, Terence, Aesop, and other ancient personalities were indeed Blacks; that Alexandria was built on the site of an ancient Egyptian city known as Rhacotis, where a town existed with its own library before the Library of Alexandria was built. This book also proves that Pythagoras, Plato and indeed many Greeks studied in Egypt. This is an important book that proves that the so-called Afrocentric claims are rooted in historical reality.

READING: As I was leaving JFK International Airport for Africa via Paris, I was excited and looking forward to the adventure. This would be the first time I would visit the Dark Continent and remain there for four years. I was to assist in building and establishing a technical school for the Malawi government in central East Africa. In 1967 when I first set foot on the African continent I had no idea how exciting it would be. After spending four years there, I never did get over my initial culture shock, and I was always learning something new about the indigenous people on the Dark Continent. I had looked forward enthusiastically to beginning my new life’s experience. When I landed in Nairobi on my flight from Rome, I was picked up at the airport by missionaries and taken to their mission in Kenya. There I spent my first night sleeping, or trying to sleep, in Africa. In the middle of the night I opened my eyes only to find several gray flat spiders that moved about at a relatively high speed in search of flies and other small flying creatures. From that midnight until dawn I slept with one eye open. This was my first shocking experience with the small creatures in Africa. After spending about five days in Nairobi visiting various missions and observing the animals in the wild, I then moved down to Malawi where I began my assigned work establishing a technical school for the Malawi government. Technical or trade schools were vitally important to the underdeveloped country’s efforts to attain better housing and sanitation for the Malawians. The primitive villages were prone to disease, especially malaria, tuberculosis, and dysentery. Today we could include HIV-AIDS in the list of prevalent diseases in Malawi.
