Creation, negotiation and subversion

Julia Gallagher and V. Y. Mudimbe

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides a fascinating range of disciplinary approaches to 'image' from politics, international relations, media studies, art and literature
  • Includes a foreword from the eminent philosopher V. Y. Mudimbe, whose seminal work on inventions and ideas of Africa is reflected on and challenged in this collection
  • Brings together ten early-stage researchers who are all involved in empirical research around the continent and who, together, present a fresh take on an important topic
