Newell for Tuesday, part 1

Stephanie Newell’s volume is denser than I expected – sorry about that.  I’m still working my way through it myself, but want to recommend that in Part 1, at least, we focus our attention on:

  • Newell’s introduction
  • Furniss’s article on Hausa writing from the 30s
  • Nwoga’s article on Onitsha Market Literature
  • Anorue’s How to Become Rich & Avoid Poverty

The other essays really are fascinating (I’ve particularly enjoyed the Larkin and the Bastian), but I want to be honest about how much material we can hope to meaningfully cover in class.  More thoughts on Part 2 coming your way tomorrow.
