Some of the most important contemporary writing in French has emerged from West Africa. This event brings together authors – including leading writer from Côte d’Ivoire, Véronique Tadjo – publishers and other specialists. They explore topics including the history of the Francophone West African book as well as the complex processes of translation between oral and literary cultures, and across various other linguistic, historical and political contexts. Lunch is provided.
In partnership with the AHRC and the Society for French Studies.
