CFP: Queer Theory in African Film and Fiction

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.
