              Society, Women and Literature in Africa (PDF ebook)

              By Orabueze, Onyebuchi

              Society, Women and Literature in Africa explores the ideological, literary, political, cultural and ethical issues related to feminist writing. She discusses how contemporary African writers have tried to counteract men s false assumptions about sex, love, society, fecundity and ...womanhood, and further details how African writers have responded to the demands of feminism. Woman s Cross Cultural Burden in the selected works of West African Female writers explores the recurrent themes of motherhood, polygamy, abandonment and widowhood in the works of Nwapa, Emecheta, Alkali, Aidoo and Mariama Ba. In Prostitution: A Metaphor for the Degradation of Womanhood in Bode Osanyin s the Noble Mistress , the author approaches the subject of woman degradation in society from the perspectives of comprehensive research and an in-depth referencing. Gendered Social Division of Labour in the African Novel explores the theme of unfairness, of institutionalized differentiation in the African novel. It reveals the total emasculation of woman in patriarchy and her desire to be liberated from male-annexation. The Prison World of Nigeria Woman: Female Reticence in Sefi Attah s Everything Good Will Come , the author explores the dimensions of gender silences . She shows how woman s voice has been stolen in patriarchy, thus rendering her a social and political mutant. Womanhood as a Metaphor for Sexual Slavery in Nawal El Saddawi s Woman at Point Zero underscores that in patriarchy a woman is educated to make an object of herself for male pleasure. She is excluded from politics as a result of religion. The Ugly Face of Ghana in the New Millennium: Alienation of Children in Amma Darko s Faceless is a stylistic study of the consequences of globalization in postindependent Ghana. In The Theme of Dispossession in A.N Akwanya s the Pilgrim Foot , the author examines the myriad perspectives of dispossession and the dispossessor.

              Nigerian Languages, Literatures, Culture and Reforms
               

              Nigerian Languages, Literatures, Culture and Reforms (PDF ebook)

              By Ndimele, Ozo-Mekuri

              The papers in this volume were selected from the Silver Jubilee edition of the Annual Conference of the Linguistic Association of Nigerian (LAN) which was held at the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC), Abuja, Nigeria. The Silver Jubilee edition is dedi...cated to the father of Nigerian Linguistics, Professor Emeritus Ayo Bamgbose. Professor Emeritus Bamgbose was the first indigenous Professor of Linguistics in Nigeria, and the first black African to teach linguistics in any known university south of the Sahara. He was there from the very beginning, and together with co-operation of people such as the late Professor Kay Williamson, he nurtured Nigerian linguistics. He is not just a foremost Nigerian linguist, but also a most famous, respected, celebrated, distinguished, and cherished African linguist of all times. To be candid, Nigerian linguistics is synonymous with Professor Emeritus Bamgbose. In 58 well-written chapters by experts in their fields, the book covers aspects of Nigerian languages, linguistics, literatures and culture. The papers have not been categorized into sections; rather they flow, hence there is some overlapping in the arrangement. The book is an essential resource for all who are interested to learn about current trends in the study of languages, linguistics and related subject-matters in Nigeria.
