FROM SHORT STORIES TO NOVELS, COMICS TO FILMS, WEʼLL ENGAGE IT ALL TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW HISTORIES OF COLONIALISM, ANTI-COLONIAL STRUGGLES, FEMINISM, POSTCOLONIAL REALITIES, AND A COMPLICATED ECONOMY HAVE INFLUENCED A RICH TRADITION OF STORYTELLING, LITERARY DISSENT, AND REPRESENTATIONAL POLITICS IN WEST AFRICA.
