French and Francophone Studies

Kanaté Dahouda

This past summer Kanaté Dahouda in collaboration with Professor Selom K. Gbanou of Calgary University (Canada), published Enjeux identitaires dans l'imaginaire francophone through the German publisher Wissenschaftlicher Verlag Trier (2013).  This multidisciplinary book analyzes the works of Francophone authors such as Dany Laferrière, Maryse Condé, Hubert Aquin, Aimé Césaire, Léopold Sédar Senghor and Aïcha Bouabaci, and explores ways in which their aesthetic imaginaries serve as modes of remembering and remaking of colonial and postcolonial identities. An outstanding contribution to the Francophone studies.
