Summary
"The editors present a fascinating and original contribution to the field, and a wide range of perspectives on African languages, literatures and cultures." -- Kizitus Mpoche, University of Douala, Cameroon This edited book examines the crucial role still played by African languages in pedagogy and literatures in the 21st century, generating insights into how they effectively serve cultural needs across the African continent and beyond. Boldly positioning African languages as key resources in the 21st century, chapters focus on themes such as language revolt by marginalized groups at grassroots level, the experience of American students learning African languages, female empowerment through the use of African languages in music, film and literary works, and immigration issues. The contributions are written by scholars of language, literature, education and linguistics, and the book will be of interest to students and scholars in these and related areas. Esther Mukewa Lisanza is Assistant Professor in the Department of African Studies at Howard University, USA. She holds a Ph.D. in language and literacy from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA. Her research and publications centre on language and literacy development, politics of language in education, African education, and women empowerment in Africa. Leonard Muaka is an Associate Professor in the Department of World Languages and Cultures at Howard University, USA. He holds a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, USA. He has taught in Kenya, Mexico and USA, and his research focuses on youth language, language and identity, political language, and multilingualism.--
