about this item

Scholars of English literature and linguistics explore the idea of community, real and imagined, in all facets that respond to postcolonial conditions: in discourse communities in postcolonial multi-lingual situations as well as in identity construction in literature, stories, and music in postcolonial locations. Focusing particularly on Africa studies, they cover on community; communication and the speech community; language, style, and belonging in music cultures; and counter-argument. The 16 papers are selected from presentations to a 2010 conference in Bayreuth. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
