Contestation and undisciplined affective economies: from the Greeks to Chinua Achebe
April 6, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. | Kane Pavilion 210
What is the place of contestation in the history of the tragic form and how could it help us to better understand tragedy from the Greeks to African literature? The Greeks give us great examples of disputes: Oedipus against Tiresias, Clytemnestra against Agamemnon, Medea against Jason, Antigone against Creon. These disagreements were in response to dramatic historical changes that masked themselves as personal differences. This conference of Ato Quaysonsponsored by the Simpson Center for the Humanities, will offer a theory of African and postcolonial tragedy, drawing on historical contestation and its relationship to strained individual affective economies. Examples will be drawn from different literary traditions and cultures but will focus specifically on the rural novels of Chinua Achebe (things are falling apart and arrow of god).
