CFP: Queer Theory in African Film and Fiction
How are African literatures and cultures mediating globalizing frameworks for gender and sexuality and shifting understandings of “queer”? From Woubi Cheri and Dakan, to Stories of Our Lives, African film has begun this conversation. From K. Sello Duiker, to Chinelo Okparanta and Diriye Osman, new voices have invited national debates on these topics. Similarly, scholars are increasingly turning a “queer eye” on classics of African literature, offering helpful re-reading of texts that open up the positioning of formerly erased sexualities as part of the heritage, in all its complexities, of contemporary sexual expression among Africans on the continent, and abroad.
