Leeds African Studies Bulletin No. 78 (2016/17)

In this issue we have a report on a YASN workshop on Gender and Sexuality in January 2016. One of the papers from that workshop by Manel Zouabi appears in this Bulletin. Another article, by Emma Rice, on the Calabash and gendered identity won the 2015-2016 Lionel Cliffe dissertation prize. Two further articles by Zindaba Chisiza and Abayomi Awelewa examine Theatre for Development and Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun respectively. The final set of articles consider Leeds’ relationship with Africa from different approaches. Martin Banham reminds us of some of the remarkable resources of the Leeds Library; Max Farrar provides a more painful reminder, of the history of racial violence in the city; while Christian Høgsbjerg’s interview with Joe Williams links the past with the present in a number of ways.
