STREAM: The Eastern African Literary and Cultural Studies

The Eastern African Literary and Cultural Studies stream invites abstracts from scholars from the region and beyond whose research focus is on the literatures and cultures from the wider Eastern African region of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Sudan, and the Horn of Africa.  The EALCS stream particularly encourage submissions that disturb and transcend ‘traditional’ approaches to scholarship on literature and culture and signal new ways of seeing and knowing the region. Thus, abstracts that deal with music, theatre, written literature, oral literature, media,  or any other cultural artifacts and processes from the region are anticipated. We would welcome panels that are innovative in terms of their format, including roundtables or other formats that diverge from the regular panel format.

Organisers: Lynda Spencer, David Kerr, Dina Ligaga and Carli Coetzee contact
