Accented Futures - Language activism and the ending of apartheid (Paperback): Carli Coetzee Accented Futures - Language activism and the ending of apartheid (Paperback)

In this wonderfully original and intensely personal--yet deeply analytical--work, Dr. Carli Coetzee argues in favor of difference and disagreement as legitimate forms of activism to bring about social change both inside and outside the teaching environment. She begins by defining "accentedness" as the process of actively working towards the ending of apartheid by being aware of the legacies of the past, without attempting to gloss over the conflicts and violence that may exist under the surface. Having established this, she examines the concept of "accent" in a broad educational context, analyzing it, not only as an accent of speech, but also an attitude, a stance against being understood--yet a way of teaching that requires teacher and pupil to understand each other's contexts. The book draws on seminal recent South African literature to illustrate a new way of reading and to theorize this teacher-student relationship. The ideas presented about the relationships created by the use of language to convey knowledge, particularly in translation, are evocative, thought-provoking, and even challenging at times. "Accented Futures" marks a significant and important contribution to research on identity in post-apartheid South Africa, as well as to the fields of education and translation studies.

The turn of the twenty-first century has witnessed an expansion of critical approaches to African literature. The Routledge Handbook of African Literature is a one-stop publication bringing together studies of African literary texts that embody an array of newer approaches applied to a wide range of works. This includes frameworks derived from food studies, utopian studies, network theory, eco-criticism, and examinations of the human/animal interface alongside more familiar discussions of postcolonial politics. Every chapter is an original research essay written by a broad spectrum of scholars with expertise in the subject, providing an application of the most recent insights into analysis of particular topics or application of particular critical frameworks to one or more African literary works. The handbook will be a valuable interdisciplinary resource for scholars and students of African literature, African culture, postcolonial literature and literary analysis. Chapter 4 of this book is freely available as a downloadable Open Access PDF under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 3.0 license. https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/tandfbis/rt-files/docs/Open+Access+Chapters/9781138713864_oachapter4.pdf

Written under the Skin - Blood and Intergenerational Memory in South Africa (Hardcover): Carli Coetzee Written under the Skin - Blood and Intergenerational Memory in South Africa (Hardcover)
Carli Coetzee

In this book the author argues that a younger generation of South Africans is developing important and innovative ways of understanding South African pasts, and that challenge the narratives that have over the last decades been informed by notions of forgiveness and reconciliation. The author uses the image of history-rich blood to explore these approaches to intergenerational memory. Blood under the skin is a carrier of embodied and gendered histories and using this image, the chapters revisit older archives, as well as analyse contemporary South African cultural and literary forms. The emphasis on blood challenges the privileged status skin has had as explanatory category in thinking about identity, and instead emphasises intergenerational transfer and continuity. The argument is that a younger generation is disputing and debating the terms through which to understand contemporary South Africa, as well as for interpreting the legacies of the past that remain under the visible layer of skin. The chapters each concern blood: Mandela's prison cell as laboratory for producing bloodless freedom; the kinship relations created and resisted in accounts of Eugene de Kock in prison; Ruth First's concern with information leaks in her accounts of her time in prison; the first human-to-human heart transplant and its relation to racialised attempts to salvage white identity; the #Fallist moment; Abantu book festival; and activist scholarship and creative art works that use blood as trope for thinking about change and continuity. Carli Coetzee is Editor of the Journal of African Cultural Studies. Her publications include: Accented Futures: Language Activism and the Ending of Apartheid (Wits University Press, 2013) and the edited collection Afropolitanism: Reboot (Routledge, 2017). She co-edited The Handbook of African Literature (Routledge, 2019) with Moradewun Adejunmobi and Negotiating the Past: The Making of Memory in South Africa(Oxford University Press, 1998) with Sarah Nuttall.

Carli Coetzee
R1,084 Discovery Miles 10 840 Out of stock

This edited collection comprises an original and activist group of contributions on that much maligned figure, the Afropolitan. The contributors do not aim to define or fix the term anew; the reboot is, instead, the beginnings of an activist scholarly agenda in which 'the Afropolitan' is reimagined to include the stealthy figure crossing the Mediterranean by boat, and the Somali shopkeeper in a South African township. In their pieces included here, the authors insist on the need to ask questions about the inclusion of such globally mobile Africans in any theorisations of the transnational circuits we call Afropolitan. This collection, from some of the foremost voices on Afropolitanism, invigorates anew the debate, and reboots understandings of who the Afropolitan is, the many places he calls his origin, and the multiple places she comes to call home in the world. The chapters in this book were originally published in the Journal of African Cultural Studies.
