Title: Literary Map of Africa - Ohio State University Libraries

URL: http://library.osu.edu/projects/african-literature/

Collection: New Media and Literary Initatives in Africa (NEMLIA)

Description: The Literary Map of Africa is a bio-bibliographical database, designed to be a comprehensive research and information tool on African literature. It does not focus on selected authors or national / regional literatures, nor does it follow the sometimes rigid North / sub-Saharan Africa divide; instead, the database seeks to cover the whole continent. This wider scope makes it possible for writers from different regions and countries, with varied histories and cultures, and who produce works in diverse African and European languages to be represented in one project. One objective this project hopes to fulfill is to include as many emerging writers as possible, especially those based in Africa. Many in this category of creative writers do not have a readership beyond their national boundaries and are therefore hardly represented in many bibliographies and encyclopedias.

URL: http://www.chimurenganewsroom.org.za/

Collection: New Media and Literary Initatives in Africa (NEMLIA)

Description: Chimurenga’s new publishing project is a once-off, one-day-only edition of a fictional pan African newspaper to be released on “Black Wednesday”, October 19th 2011 – a historic day in South Africa that marks the banning of numerous Black Consciousness organizations and independent newspapers by the old apartheid regime. Titled The Chimurenga Chronic, the project is an intervention into the newspaper as a vehicle of knowledge production and dissemination. Our sense of history, our sense of what is important and our sense of record are all marked by the newspaper medium. To explore this, the Chimurenga Chronic is backdated to the week of May 18-24 2008, the period marked by the outbreak of so-called xenophobic violence in South Africa. A low-tech time-travel machine, The Chimurenga Chronic seeks to provide an alternative to mainstream representations of history, on the one hand filling the gap in the historical coverage of this event, whilst at the same time reopening it. The objective is not to revisit the past to bring about closure, but rather to provoke and challenge our perceptions.
