African Literatures and Ecology Congress, Cheikh Anta Diop University (Dakar), November 2nd, 3rd,...

Environmental issues have been a discreet but persistent factor in the development of African literature since the beginning of the colonial era. The ecological threats facing the continent as a result of global warming, extractivist predation and the consequences of armed conflict have strong literary repercussions.
