CODESRIA at the 2010 Göteborg Book Fair on Africa and African Literature (23-26 September 2010)

Number of visits: 2330

The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) hereby announces the presence of its books, journals, monographs, research reports and other publications at the 2010 Göteborg Book Fair, holding between 23 and 26 September 2010 at the Swedish Exhibition Centre, Göteborg, Sweden.

The Göteborg Book Fair which started as a trade fair for librarians in 1985 has developed over the years into the most important cultural event, with 97,211 visitors and 895 exhibitors from 24 countries at its 2009 edition. This year, a total of 446 meetings are planned at this show, where round tables and seminars involving more than 800 participants from 36 countries will be at the rendezvous.

The theme of the book fair this year is Africa and African Literature, and it promises to offer the largest, broadest and most comprehensive presentation of African contemporary literature in Sweden. CODESRIA’s presence at this year’s edition will therefore afford scholars, researchers, policymakers, others interested in research on Africa and the general public another opportunity to access CODESRIA’s new publications, which include From ‘Foreign Natives’ to ‘Native Foreigners’: Explaining Xenophobia in Post-apartheid South Africa by Michael Neocosmos; Gender, Sport and Development in Africa, edited by Jimoh Shehu; Genre et sport dans le développement en Afrique, sous la direction de Monia Lachheb; Africa Reaffirming our Commitment, edited by Adebayo Olukoshi, Jean Bernard Ouédraogo and Ebrima Sall; Reforming the Malawian Public Sector, edited by Richard Tambulasi; Saviors and Survivors: Darfur, Politics and the War on Terror, by Mahmood Mamdani; Speaking Truth to Power: Selected Pan-African Postcards by Abdul-Raheem Tajudeen; A Study of the Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria, by Jibrin Ibrahim and Dauda Garuba; A Study of Ghana’s Electoral Commission, by Emmanuel Debrah, Kojo Pumpuni Asante and Emmanuel Gyimah-Boadi; and, of course, the most recent issues of CODESRIA Journals and Bulletin.
