Acting as heroic: creativity and political violence in Tuareg theater in Northern Mali / Susan Rasmussen -- Representations of war and peace in selected works of Ben Okri / -- Kayode Omoniyi Ogunfolabi -- Visions of war, testaments of peace: the "burden" of Sierra Leone / Cheryl Sterling -- The duty to remember. (Re)writing the massacre of Thiaroye / Sabrina Parent -- In search of lost Kabyles in Mehdi Lallaoui's La colline aux oliviers / Amina Moinfar -- "Lament for the casualties": the Nigerian War of 1967-70 and the poetry of John Pepper Clark-Bekederemo / Michael Sharp ; Narrating War and Peace in Africa interrogates conventional representations of Africa and African culture -- mainly in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries -- with an emphasis on portrayals of conflict and peace. While Africa has experienced political and social turbulence throughout its history, more recent conflicts seem to reinforce the myth of barbarism across the continent: in Nigeria, Rwanda, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique, Chad, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Sudan. The essays in this volume address reductive and stereotypical assumptions of postcolonial violence as "tribal" in nature, and offer instead various perspectives -- across disciplinary boundaries -- that foster a less fetishized, more contextualized understanding of African war, peace, and memory. Through their geographical, historical, and cultural scope and diversity, the chapters in Narrating War and Peace in Africa aim to challenge negative stereotypes that abound in relation to Africa in general and to its wars and conflicts in particular, encouraging a shift to more balanced and nuanced representations of the continent and its political and social climates.
