About this item

In order to explicate the repetition of the past and how shifts in engagement with the past characterize an unstable belonging in the black tradition, Masemola mobilizes French philosopher Gilles Deleuze's (1925-95) theory--a critique of representation based on repetition--and therewith investigates how cultural memory is symptomatic of entry and exits into modernism and tradition, present, and past, Self and Other, the "inside" and "outside" of black tradition. His topics include topologies of collocation: the problematic of representations in black South African autobiography, between the double temporality of Tinseltown and Sophiatown: cultural memory in Miriam Makeba's Makeba: My Story and Bloke Modisane's Blame Me on History, and demonstrating the democratic ideal in the ideal of aporetic autobiography: Nelson Mandela's Long Walk to Freedom and Mamphela Ramphele's A Life.
