BIGSAS Festival of African and African Diasporic Literatures

From May 24th to 26th 2011 Bayreuth will host the first “BIGSAS Festival of African and African Diasporic Literatures” under the theme “African Conceptualisations of Europe”. The festival, which is open to the interested public, is intended to explore the world of words in an age witnessing a transition from hard books to soft books available on the internet. The authors and artists invited will engage in readings and performances between prose and poetry, drama and short story, music and politics. In doing so, the festival will connect artists from Harare and Berlin, London and Ibadan, Djibouti and Paris, Yaoundé and Bayreuth. This year’s festival will focus on conceptualisations of Europe both within African and African diasporic literatures.
