A Incompletude do Processo de Disciplinarização das Literaturas Africanas

Luís Kandjimbo

Abstract


In the present essay, I propose a meta-theoretical and interdisciplinary articulation of themes and problems that point to the need for African literary comparativism. In particular, I examine the controversies that have emerged in the theories and criticism devoted to African literatures in light of the debates that likewise took place in African philosophy. The key concept with which I operate is disciplinarization; this is due to its potential for explaining the incomplete nature of the process that might lead to the integration of African Literary Studies or African Literatures in the current disciplinary system.

Keywords
