Download and read online Heimsuchungen in PDF and EPUB Zwölf Stories der jungen nigerianischen Bestsellerautorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Nigeria – Nordamerika: Zwei Welten, getrennt durch eine scheinbar unüberwindbare Kluft. Die nigerianische Heimat schwebt zwischen Tradition und Moderne, wird bedroht von Gewalt und Korruption. In Amerika hingegen hält das Leben nicht, was es verspricht. An den Rändern beider Kulturen werden die prekären Bande zwischen Kindern und Eltern, die verborgenen Vibrationen zwischen Männern und Frauen aufgespürt: Die Liebe wird in der Distanz auf die Probe gestellt und das Sich-Wiederfinden ist schwieriger als erwartet. In der Familie schleichen sich Spannungen ein, wenn der Strudel des Lebens ihre Mitglieder mitreißt. Diese sinnlichen und gleichsam klaren Einblicke in die Wirren des nigerianischen, in erster Linie aber des menschlichen Lebens überhaupt, machen diese Geschichten nicht nur zu Erzählungen einer außergewöhnlichen jungen afrikanischen Stimme, sondern zu ganz großer Literatur. »Chimamanda Adichie ist eine neue Autorin, die mit der Gabe der alten Geschichtenerzähler gesegnet ist.« Chinua Achebe

Download and read online A Companion to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in PDF and EPUB Easily the leading and most engaging voice of her era and generation, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has bridged gaps and introduced new motifs and narrative styles which have energized contemporary African fiction since her first novel, Purple Hibiscus (2003). With Half of a Yellow Sun (2007) and The Thing Around Your Neck - Short Stories (2009), she established herself as a preeminent story-teller. Americanah (2013), with ingenious craftsmanship addresses the sensitive themes of passionate love, independence, freedom and moral responsibility with extravagant and versatile narrative innovations. Through her writings, she has made herself relevant to people of all ages - across racial and linguistic boundaries. Her talks, blogs, musings on social media, essays and commentaries, workshop-mentoring for budding young writers, lecture circuit discourses, all enrich her imaginative creativity as they expand and define her mission as a writer. "We Should All be Feminists" she proclaimed in an essay, giving feminism a "tweak and twist" and suggesting new outlooks in literary theory. Her contributions to African, Diasporic and World literatures deserve serious analyses, commentaries and interpretations, and this Companion to her work critically examines her creative outputs from her art and ideology, from feminism to war, to matters of myth and perception, and the challenges of multicultural existence and complex human identities. Ernest N. Emenyonu is Professor of Africana Studies at the University of Michigan-Flint, USA.

Als Odenigbos neue Liebe Olanna ihr privilegiertes Leben in Lagos verlässt, um mit ihm zu leben, wachsen die drei schnell zu einer kleinen Familie zusammen. Richard, ein englischer Journalist, der in Nigeria Inspiration für sein erstes Buchprojekt sucht, verliebt sich in Olannas ungleiche Schwester Kainene, die die Geschäfte der reichen, aber auch korrupten Familie leitet. Sie alle durchleben durch ihre je eigenen Kämpfe und Erfolge, doch teilen gemeinsam die große Hoffnung auf ein unabhängiges Biafra, das 1967 im Osten Nigerias, wo die Mehrheit der Igbo-Bevölkerung lebt, ausgerufen wird. Nur drei Jahre später versinkt das Land in einem blutigen Bürgerkrieg, der Olanna, Kainene und ihre Liebsten brutal aus ihren Leben reißt und alles Dagewesene ausradiert. »Chimamanda Adichie ist eine neue Autorin, die mit der Gabe der alten Geschichtenerzähler gesegnet ist.« Chinua Achebe

Download and read online We Should All Be Feminists in PDF and EPUB What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-viewed Tedx talk of the same name—by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century—one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiences—in the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroad—offering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike. Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman today—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists. An eBook short.

Download and read online Stigma and Culture in PDF and EPUB Stigma and Culture by J. Lorand Matory is a courageous auto-ethnographic examination of the stigma attached to color. The work is a major contribution to a new scholarly genre, a form of anthropological theory-building in memoir form. Its varied gestures include: paeans to past mentors; rich recollections of childhood; ethnographic analyses of various cultural institutions, especially Howard University; re-conceptualizations of Caribbean/African significances vis-à-vis African Americans in the United States, and more. Such a wide-ranging effort is precisely what recommends this bookand what makes it like few other books in Anthropology or Africana Studies. Matory argues that several ironies highlight class-based (seemingly post-racial) social formations while also reinforcing racialization and challenging such racial logics from within. He shows how educational institutions are spaces for the paradoxical production of both elitist/post-ethnic class identities and for the fostering of would-be ethnic particularity and differenceall at the same time. Providing a nuanced window into variously situated Black” groups in the United States (including the seemingly exotic little races” or tri-racial isolates” such as Louisiana Creoles and the oft-discussed Gullah/Geechee), this book argues that the longstanding scholarly assumption about social isolation as a causal mechanism for the cultural legitimacy of such groups is absolutely wrong. Instead, Matory shows that all of these groups are quite decidedly produced in and through contact with their ostensible others. Ethnic purities and particularities are the byproducts of anxieties and efforts birthed from the contact that such purities are meant to deny. This is one of the book's most powerful interventions, and Matory provides compelling arguments for how so many get this wrong. Ultimately Stigma and Culture explains not just the continuing significance of race and ethnicity as seen in various American contexts, but also makes the case for how new and old ethnic differences are enabled and produced in the contemporary moment.

Download and read online Dear Ijeawele or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions in PDF and EPUB New York Times Best Seller A Skimm Reads Pick From the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists comes a powerful new statement about feminism today--written as a letter to a friend. A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie's letter of response. Here are fifteen invaluable suggestions--compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive--for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy if she so desires; having open conversations with her about clothes, makeup, and sexuality; debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can "allow" women to have full careers, Dear Ijeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century. It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.

Download and read online The Discourse of Reading Groups in PDF and EPUB Of interest in their own terms as a significant cultural practice, reading groups also provide a window on the everyday interpretation of literary texts. While reading is often considered a solitary process, reading groups constitute a form of social reading, where interpretations are produced and displayed in discourse. The Discourse of Reading Groups is a study of such joint conceptual activity, and how this is necessarily embedded in interpersonal activity and the production of reader identities. Uniquely in this context it draws on, and seeks to integrate, ideas from both cognitive and social linguistics. The book will be of interest to scholars in literacy studies as well as cultural and literary studies, the history of reading, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics, digital technologies and educational research.

Download and read online Americanah in PDF and EPUB The bestselling novel—a love story of race and identity—from the award-winning author of We Should All Be Feminists and Dear Ijeawele. Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.
