Bookings now open for SCOLMA 2018 Conference

Bookings are now open for the SCOLMA 2018 Conference which will be held at the University of Birmingham, Monday 10th September.

‘Things come together?: Literary archives from, in and for Africa’ will explore African literary archives, their creation, preservation, digitisation and use in research and teaching. African literature is multi-faceted and multi-lingual. Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart (1958) not only signalled the first stages of a new outpouring of literary creativity in Africa, but also built upon long literary traditions, both oral and written. The conference will look at archives generated by novelists, poets and dramatists, whether in oral or written form and whether in modern or ‘traditional’ genres.
