Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Good afternoon, everybody, I'm very glad to see you all here. * We have with us today at our roundtable discussion some of the editors and contributors to this wonderful forthcoming volume, African Women Writing Resistance, who are going to share with us their visions for a future for Africa and especially for Africa's women. This is very important because, as those of us who work in African studies know, most of the time we're struggling against the tides of the past, and nobody thinks of us as having a future. Certainly nobody thinks of African women as being able to envision a future, so this is important work we will be engaging in today. Our plan is that each of the panelists will say a few words about the topic, and then we will have an open discussion.
