African Literature Association Conference

A Senegalese novelist and reporter immersed in the histories of civil war. A journalist digging for answers in Sierra Leone’s violent past. A master storyteller, working through her ancestral griots. In mid-June, these bright literary minds will converge on New Haven for Yale’s African Literary Association conference. Dedicated this year to “Africa and the World,” the conference will explore how the idea of “world literature” has changed, reshaping the African narratives that spring therefrom.
