Description : "This is a cogent analysis of the complexities of gender in the work of nine contemporary Anglophone and Francophone novelists.... offers illuminating interpretations of worthy writers... " —Multicultural Review "This book reaffirms Bessie Head's remark that books are a tool, in this case a tool that allows readers to understand better the rich lives and the condition of African women. Excellent notes and a rich bibliography." —Choice "... a college-level analysis which will appeal to any interested in African studies and literature." —The Bookwatch This book applies gender as a category of analysis to the works of nine sub-Saharan women writers: Aidoo, Bá, Beyala, Dangarembga, Emecheta, Head, Liking, Tlali, and Zanga Tsogo. The author appropriates western feminist theories of gender in an African literary context, and in the process, she finds and names critical theory that is African, indigenous, self-determining, which she then melds with western feminist theory and comes out with an over-arching theory that enriches western, post-colonial and African critical perspectives.

Description : Anytime, Anywhere synthesizes existing research and practices in the emerging field of student-centered learning, and includes profiles of schools that have embraced this approach. Educators have argued that students should be at the center of learning, constructing new knowledge based on what is interesting to them, and receiving guidance in classrooms—or anywhere they may happen to be— from adults with whom they have positive relationships. Now, with the advent of new technologies, researchers are confirming the value of this approach by showing how the human brain and memory work in response to different environments, and how digital tools give students powerful new ways to express what they’ve learned."

Description : Having its origins in the slave narratives and the folktales transmitted orally during that period, the literature of the African American has been rich and varied. Beginning with the first published work of fiction (Clotel; Or, the President's Daughter) in 1853, continuing under the influence of W.E.B. Du Bois during the first part of this century, and reaching a flowering during the Harlem Renaissance, major contributions have been made to American literature. Today African American writers, such as Toni Morrison, Alex Haley, and Maya Angelou are recognized as among the most significant and popular authors in this country. This new book presents an important overview of African-American literature as well as a comprehensive bibliography with easy access provided by title, subject, and author indexes.

Description : Explores the novels, short stories, and plays of three African American writers to demonstrate how they challenged classic portrayals of black men in earlier literature. Discusses how the identity of black men changed from one equated with victimization, isolation, and patriarchy; to one of community, camaraderie, and intimacy.
