"The Nollywood Diaspora: A video genre"
Jonathan Haynes, Long Island University
The Nigerian film industry is now the third largest in the world and reaches far beyond Nigeria's borders, although not through the normal channels of international film distribution. As the international dimensions of Nollywood have grown, many films with foreign settings have appeared, made as collaborations between the Lagos-based industry and a Nigerian expatriate community. These films constitute a genre, which this presentation will define and set in the context of Nollywood aesthetics.

December 11, 2009Born of Adamastor: The Classical Heritage in the Works of the South African Poet, Douglas Livingstone (1932-1996)
Douglas Livingstone was a microbiologist who started reading translations of Classical authors in his twenties. Like Roy Butler and other contemporary South African poets, he shows a keen awareness of the complexity of incorporating the European literary heritage within a body of work that is strongly rooted in an African context, both rural and urban. Drawing on his collected works and some unpublished material from the archives of the National English Literary Museum in Grahamstown, this paper demonstrates how Livingstone uses the mythological and historical heritage from Antiquity to highlight themes of human weakness and ecological fragility.
