Abstract:

Mapping Africa in the English Speaking World addresses issues of
representations of Africa in the English speaking world. English has become
a global language which has transformed the world into a global village,
and as Graddol (2008) states, it "is now redefining national and individual
identities worldwide; shifting political fault lines; creating new global
patterns of wealth and social exclusion; and suggesting new notions of
human rights and responsibilities of citizenship." The book grapples with
the relationship between Africa and the rest of the English speaking world,
and touches on issues of (Euro-American) misrepresentations of the
continent in literary works and films etc, misrepresentations which are
nevertheless passed as true and infallible knowledge about Africa; the
marginalization of Africans; the marginalization of African scholarship,
the English language and culture versus African languages and cultures;
language policy and language diglossia in the continent, African theatre in
post colonial Africa, negotiations of identity in the post colonial era,
and relations between gender and language, among other things. These issues
are bound to stimulate debates on Africa and its representation(s) in the
English speaking world.
